Bhopal Water Pollution Victims Ask Appeals Court to Hold Union Carbide Accountable

(UCC) is responsible for water pollution from the same plant that continues to foul local wells. Over a year ago a New York federal district court found that UCC could not be sued, despite compelling evidence that UCC caused the harm.

Continuing injustice is like a wound that will not heal. The pain does not diminish. Normalcy does not return. Bhopal is shocking in that injustice continues to occur to this day.
