Last month, on the 29th Anniversary of the Disaster, supporters of the Bhopal cause all over the world launched a coordinated relay fast for 365 days to amplify the voices of survivors and to show our commitment to bringing justice in Bhopal.
Today is the 29th Anniversary of the Bhopal Gas Disaster. As many of you know, over 500,000 people continue to be affected while 100,000 still require ongoing care for chronic health problems. Perhaps most tragic of all are the mutagenic effects of the gas exposure. Many children are born with crippling congenital malformations and developmental disabilities which rob them of their quality of life. Children born in Bhopal are 7 times more likely to be born with malformations than their counterparts throughout the rest of India.
