It means that in a world in which corporations design economic policies, ravage the environment, make or break governments and operate with impunity, we are all potential or actual victims of corporate negligence and wrongdoing.
It means that in a world in which tens of millions of tons of toxic chemicals are being released into the environment in ever-growing volumes – chemicals that accumulate in animals and people and are linked with cancers and developmental disorders – slow and silent Bhopals are happening now, in our communities, our workplaces, our bodies and those of our children.
We in the Bhopal community would like to offer a platform to every individual or community who feel that they too ‘live in Bhopal’.
It’s an opportunity to come together, to share in one place our stories and ourselves, evoking the words of Martin Luther King by reminding each other, and the world, that
an injustice anywhere, is an injustice everywhere
