Bhopali Screening Tour 2013 – Dates

The Bhopal gas disaster, as well as the slew of chemical disasters impacting communities around the world, reminds us of the need for people-power to hold corporate-power accountable. In preparation for the 30th anniversary, the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, North America, alongside Amnesty International Canada/USA, the Association for India’s Development (AID) and our local allies, is organizing a North American Screening Tour of the critically acclaimed documentary, Bhopali. By bringing this film to a community near you, we hope to build solidarity with survivors & spread the message of this 29 year old struggle for corporate accountability.
