India has reached new heights of physical and sexual abuse and arbitrary arrests of hijras. But recent events have inspired the launch of the National Campaign for Sexual Minorities' Rights.

Dow Must Pay

The International Campaign to Keep Pressure on Union Carbide's New Owners

Eight days into an indefinite fast, two women survivors of the world's worst chemical disaster in Bhopal, India brought the disaster home to top executives of Dow Chemical, Union Carbide's new owners. The survivors addressed Dow shareholders and leadership at Dow's Annual General Meeting (AGM), demanding that the company take responsibility for the health consequences and environmental impacts of their operations in Bhopal and other communities poisoned by Dow and its subsidiaries elsewhere.

With graphic eleven-foot banners of gas-affected Bhopal residents as a backdrop, activists held up photographs of Bhopal residents affected Dow's pollution at a rally outside the shareholder meeting in Midland, Michigan. More than thirty people from the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, a global coalition campaigning to hold Dow accountable for the Bhopal legacy, attended the rally and shareholder meeting.

Mrs. Rasheeda Bee and Mrs. Champa Devi Shukla, survivors and leaders of the trade union Bhopal Gas Affected Women Stationery Workers Association, and long-time Bhopal activist Satinath Sarangi, launched their fast on May 1, 2003, at a demonstration in New York's financial district. More than 130 people fasted in solidarity with the trio.
