Olympic Dow Chemical protest in Bhopal

This video from Britain says about itself:

Meredith Alexander resigns from the Commission for Sustainable London 2012 – in protest at decision to allow Dow Chemicals to be a sponsor when they are still to resolve the legacy of the Bhopal disaster.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Spotlight on Dow’s Olympic shame

INDIA: Hundreds of survivors of the Bhopal gas disaster held a “special Olympics” in the city today to shame London 2012 sponsor Dow Chemical Co.

They are demanding that it pay compensation for a 1984 chemical leak that killed around 15,000 people and poisoned a further 500,000.

The “Olympics” began with an opening ceremony of children with celebral palsy, partial paralysis and brain injuries.

Dow denies liability for the disaster and says a 1989 deal resolved the issue.
