The Yes Men Fix the World 's a Riot. No, Really.

We all know the facts.

Free-market capitalism is dangerous. It's run by a whole lot of bad, powerful people, and it hurts a whole lot of people who don't deserve to be hurt.

So much for the obvious. Now what?

Survivors of Bhopal Gas Disaster, the world's worst industrial disaster, are again on hunger strike in India in search of justice, more than 22 years after the gas leak. The hostile local government refuses to budge on their demands, which include access to clean and non-poisonous drinking water, proper health care and economic rehabilitation. This morning, on the 13th day of their hunger strike, the police swooped down early in the morning with the intention of taking them to hospital and force-feeding them. read full story / add a comment

21 years after the Bhopal Gas disaster, which has resulted in 20,000 deaths to date, survivors have still not received justice, or adequate compensation, and the factory site itself has yet to be cleaned up. Many Bhopalis are still drinking poisoned water, while the officials responsible for the plant, including Union Carbide CEO Warren Anderson, continue to abscond from facing legal proceedings for their callous negligence. Thus, a group of sixty Bhopalis have embarked on an 800 km walk for justice from Bhopal to New Delhi, where they will meet with the Prime Minister and voice their demands, following it up with a hunger strike if action is not taken. They have been on foot for more than a month now and are due to arrive into India's capital city and political Centre on 25th March. read full story / add a comment
international / environment / press release Saturday February 18, 2006 22:24 by me
Various survivors of the Bhopal Gas Leak and activist supporters, about 150 individuals, are embarking on a month long padayatra [protest march on foot] from Bhopal to Delhi, which is a distance of approx. 800km. They are setting out from the Union Carbide factory in Bhopal on 20th February and hope to reach New Delhi by the end of March. They will stop along the way in various other areas/communities that have been affected negatively by industrial pollution to share stories and establish connections. They will be walking 25-35 kilometers per day. When they arrive in Delhi there will be a big day of support and final walk to the Prime Minister's Office with various other groups from Delhi joining for the last leg to make their support for the demands of the campaigners clear. read full story / add a comment
