Bhopal survivors Fight : bhopal.net

Everyone is aware of the Union Carbide's tragedy in Bhopal years ago. The survivors are still struggling for their right to live. And are demanding justice thats sooo overdue.

I stumbled upon this site ( bhopal.net ) and was impressed by the right use of internet for the right cause. They are posting the progress of their campaign in a blog and uploading pix and videos daily. They are even hosting these videos on youtube. Thats kind of cool for a village campaign and this shows how the internet can really be used. They even setup a way to fax the Prime minister of India with a petition from anyone who wishes to support the cause. 5832 faxes were sent this way and the faxing is now closed though. That was the best part~



Their walk to Delhi for justice - everything captured in pix on the blog. They walked for 172 days to get to delhi with kids and women.
