Greenpeace Returns Poisonous Waste

Yesterday Greenpeace and survivors of the world's worst industrial disaster in Bhopal, India, started returning poisonous waste collected from the disaster scene to its rightful owner, Dow Chemical.

The waste was abandoned in Bhopal in 1984 and has been poisoning people there ever since.

Ten Greenpeace activists, including John Passacantando and Rashida Bi, unloaded 250 kg of the waste safely contained in seven barrels from the Greenpeace ship 'Arctic Sunrise' and started delivering it to Dow's largest European operation, Dow Benelux in the Netherlands.

The International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal is calling on Dow to accept its pending liabilities in Bhopal, to clean up the site, provide people with clean drinking water, long-term medical care and full
compensation.
