'Give back the sponsorship from Dow Chemicals' [India]

Second generation victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy are in town to urge Anna University to return the Rs 5 lakh sponsorship obtained from Dow Chemicals, the company that presently owns the Union Carbide factory that caused the gas disaster in 1984...“Dow is in the midst of a massive public relations crisis and sponsoring an event at a premier institution like Anna University will help them overcome this,” says Nityanand Jayaraman, a member of the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal...The victims...have made repeated attempts to speak to the university management, faculty and students.
