Please share. And if you’re a musician, please take this song, and make your own version. The hope is to put as many versions of this song online as there are musicians willing to do it… any genre, different takes on the same song, all around the planet.
You’ll be helping over half a million people affected by the disaster. They’ve been fighting for more than 30 years, fighting one of THE great injustices, the world’s worst industrial disaster, which is STILL going on. But, not only will you be helping the survivors, you’ll be helping change the world by ensuring that this kind of disaster can never happen again.
In the words of the song’s writer: “Bhopal is a problem that actually could be fixed. How many of the terrible things that are happening these days can you say that about? The company execs and politicians who could fix Bhopal – who could clean up the toxic site and water supply, fund proper healthcare and full compensation – haven’t done it, partly because they think no one cares and that they can get away with it. This is an attempt to shame them into action, through the power of music.
“So please share – and make music – far and wide. The more far, the more wide, the more chance that one day soon those execs and politicians will be looking over the shoulders of their kids and grand-kids, on YouTube, or whatever place they’re sharing stuff, and they’ll suddenly catch their breath.”
