Justice in the USA and India
International Human Rights Day
  Dec 10 2014
Justice in the USA and India

Association for India's Development (AID) has always stood by the struggles of the oppressed and marginalized. We have a large volunteer base in the United States and today, on Human Rights Day, we are shocked by the choke that led to the death of Eric Garner in New York and the numerous other cases of extrajudicial killings to which recent similar incidents have drawn attention. Nobody has yet been brought to justice in this case in the United States, and nobody has been brought to justice in India when on December 3, 1984, the Union Carbide plant (now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dow Chemical Corp.) choked, maimed, and killed thousands of people in Bhopal. Human rights groups across the United States and India are on the streets fighting for justice, and on this day we stand for equality in the eyes of the law for all races, all people of color, and holding governments and corporations accountable for their actions around the world.

Struggling to breathe: Bhopal 1984 - New York 2014

Bhopal Survivors Rally "I can't breathe!"  gasped Eric Garner. 

His cry, replayed a million times

Echoes the night of 3 December 1984.

Unlike the people of Bhopal

Eric Garner was not choking on gas 

From a Union Carbide pesticide plant.  

A pesticide plant that could not have heard the people cry

could not have stopped leaking if it tried.

Or could it?

Leelabai Margale wins Chingari Trust Award for Women Fighting against Corporate Crimes
Leelabai MargaleThe Chingari Trust has announced that Leelabai Balu Margale of village Mugaon in the Mose Valley will receive the 2014 Chingari Award for Women Fighting against Corporate Crimes and for Environmental Conservation. 

Leelabai Margale is an activist fighting along with villagers of Mugaon to defend their land from being forcibly taken by the Lavasa Corporation which aims to convert this hilly area near Pune into a private city.  She has faced threats but continued to struggle.  In 2011, when her house was destroyed in a blast, she filed an FIR against the Lavasa Corporation.  

The Chingari Trust was formed by Rashida Bee and Champa Devi Shukla, activists working with the Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Karamchari Sangh.  In 2004 they were awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize and in 2005 they formed the Chingari Trust to work for the welfare of the Bhopal survivors and to extend solidarity to those fighting against other corporate crimes.
