Bhopal revisited–Sex and Politics

Bhopal memorial commemorating the victims of the huge disaster from 1984.

Bhopal memorial commemorating the victims of the huge disaster that occurred in 1984.

Earlier this year on Sex and Politics, I interviewed Reena Shadaan, an activist trying to get compensation for victims to cover their losses from the Bhopal disaster. I had posted about the story on my blog here, but there were problems with the show and it was never mounted to the website. I have posted an un-edited version of the show, and people can listen now. It’s here.

This is the 30th anniversary of the worst non-nuclear industrial accident in history. It’s time for Union Carbide (which bought out Dow and is therefore responsible for compensating the victims) to do the right thing.
