Welcome to Students for Bhopal!

Bhopal, the “Hiroshima of the chemical industry,” is the world’s worst-ever industrial disaster. "Students here are like students elsewhere," says Janine Jacques, a student at Wheaton College in Massachusetts. "When we learned about the ongoing catastrophe in Bhopal, we were outraged. We decided we had to act." You can too!

"The year 2003 was a special year in the history of the campaign for justice in Bhopal. It was the year when student and youth supporters from at least 30 campuses in the US and India took action against Dow Chemical or in support of the demands of the Bhopal survivors. As we enter the 20th year of the unfolding Bhopal disaster, we can, with your support, convey to Dow Chemical that the fight for justice in Bhopal is getting stronger and will continue till justice is done. We look forward to your continued support and good wishes, and hope that our joint struggle will pave the way for a just world free of the abuse of corporate power."
