From Bhopal to Texas: Hungry for Justice
Diane Wilson's hunger strike in protest of Union Carbide Corp.'s legacies of pollution and corporate callousness has been joined by hundreds of people worldwide. Lisa Sorg, news editor of the San Antonio Current, looks at the Texas woman's protest and how it extends beyond the current events in Bhopal, India, where more than 8,000 people died in a 1984 chemical leak. The issues of environmental destruction and its human toll, corporate influence and its absence of accountability, ties Bhopal to Seadrift, Texas, and to every community that is at the mercy of contaminating industries.
