Dow Chemicals Partner with London Olympics

Dear All,

Dow Chemical acquired Union Carbide as a wholly owned subsidiary in 2001.
They are therefore responsible for the clean up of the former Union Carbide
Factory site in Bhopal, India. The area around the factory is densely populated and continues to be heavily contaminated by chemicals and toxins
produced by the factory which Dow, despite their evident responsibility,
have thus far refused to clean up.

The situation in Bhopal is a humanitarian and environmental catastrophe that
continues to affect tens of thousands of people today.

The organisers of the Olympic Games claim that they are commited to
organising a sustainable and environmentally friendly event. It is therefore
completely unacceptable  for Dow Chemical to be partnered with the London
Olympic Games, and the wider International Olympic Organisation.

friends and put it out on social media networks as well.http://www.change.org/petitions/locog-should-drop-dow-chemical-as-partners-of-london-2012-olympic-games-and-providers-of-the-olympic-stadium-wrap
