Please sign petition to US government to stop shielding Dow Chemical from criminal culpability for Bhopal

This is the petition initiated by Bhopal activists demanding the US government abide by international law & stop shielding Dow Chemical from criminal charges in an Indian court–probably to shield itself from criminal culpability in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, & elsewhere.

The people of Bhopal have fought against insuperable odds for 32 years & new generations of their children bear the brunt of corporate criminality & impunity. They have exhausted so many legal options because US & Indian courts have also shielded Dow.

The Bhopal court bringing criminal charges against Dow is standing against the tide & we need to support this effort to bring justice for what is considered one of the worst industrial accidents in human history–& that is quite an indictment.

Please consider making this petition a personal campaign on FB, Twitter, & elsewhere for the next few weeks as Bhopal activists try to get 100,000 signatures from human rights supporters around the world. It is a powerful call to arms for justice.
