Democracy Now! 08 November 2010 A group of 400 survivors of the Bhopal disaster have been protesting Obama's visit to India. The 1984 Bhopal industrial gas disaster left an estimated 15,000 people dead. The company, Union Carbide, is now a subsidiary of Dow Chemical. Dow has faced calls to clean up the contaminated site, increase compensation for victims, and fund studies to assess damages to the environment and public health. India has also demanded the extradition of former Union Carbide CEO Warren Anderson, who fled India shortly after his arrest in the disaster's aftermath. For more information, Democracy Now! speaks with Sathyu Sarangi, the founder of the Bhopal Group for Information and Action and a founding trustee of a free clinic for the treatment of all those affected by the gas leak.
