25 yrs on, a walk through the Carbide plant [India]

A gentle breeze blows through the rusting carcass of the Union Carbide factory in Bhopal...the Madhya Pradesh government wanted to throw... [the factory]...open to the world for the first time ever...two weeks before the 25th anniversary of the Bhopal gas tragedy...to show...that the plant was completely safe and to dispel fears that hazardous chemicals were still scattered in the factory...Activists working with the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal...see the move as one in a series of efforts by the government to absolve itself of any further responsibility.
