Hundreds have marched through the city of Bhopal on the 30th anniversary of the world’s deadliest industrial disaster. People are demanding stricter punishments for those responsible and bigger compensation payments for those affected.
The protest march, which took place Wednesday, was preceded by a torch rally on the eve of the anniversary. Participants held pictures of victims and burned effigies of US corporation Dow Chemical.
In the early hours of December 3, 1984, 40 tons of toxic methyl isocyanate gas spewed out from the Bhopal pesticide factory and spread across the city, killing many thousands.
