RT published this video item, entitled “Indians rally on anniversary of Bhopal gas leak tragedy that claimed THOUSANDS of lives” – below is their description.
A massive rally to mark the Bhopal chemical disaster’s 37th anniversary has filled the streets of the city, with demonstrators holding aloft banners naming Dow Chemical, which bought Union Carbide India, the company responsible for the tragedy. On December 3, 1984, 42 tons of toxic methyl isocyanate gas escaped into the atmosphere, causing the death of an estimated 7,000 people – though some maintain the final toll was as high as 25,000 – and multiple illnesses and disabilities among survivors and their offspring.
