PUBLIC MEETING AND EXPRESSIONS OF SOLIDARITY WITH BHOPALIS
Saturday 12th June, 4pm onwards
Jantar Mantar, New Delhi
After 26 years and nearly two generations of untold sufferings, nightmares, pain, trauma, lost livelihoods and a historic fight for justice from Bhopal to all across the world the verdict is : to two years imprisonment and a fine of Rs. one lakh each under section 304(a), imprisonment of 3 months and a fine of Rs.250 under Sec 336, 6 months and Rs.500 under Sec 337 and 2 years and Rs.1,000 under Sec 338; all the sentences to run concurrently and UCIL to pay a paltry 5 Lakh rupees.
It's shame for the judicial system and another blot on the secular, socialist democratic traditions of the country. It's an insult to those who died, continue to die and rubs salt to unhealed wounds of those survived and who have struggled in face of unsurmountable odds for all these years. The citizens of Delhi and the whole country are enraged at this travesty of justice and petty politicking which has marred the worst industrial disaster in human history.
We will gather for a public meeting in Jantar Mantar addressed by several eminent citizens followed by an evening filled with verses, banners, posters, poems, songs or actions... we will perform a die-in action too demanding justice in Bhopal and light candles in memory of those who died and salute to those who continue to struggle and suffer. Let us join hands and stand up for justice in Bhopal ...
