Oct. 28 (Tonight): Protest Dow Chemical

From Merle Ratner:

Today (Wednesday) October 28, 6:30-8:00 pm

Milk Studios
450 West 15th St
(bt 9th and 10th Aves)

Dow Chemical has the unmitigated gall to be sponsoring an event about impact of and solutions to the global water crisis (see below)! There is indeed a global water crisis that needs to be addressed, but Dow is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Join Agent Orange & Bhopal activists to protest Dow’s lies and complicity!

Demand compensation for Vietnamese Agent Orange victims and cleanup of the toxic hot spots

Demand cleanup and compensation for the victims in Bhopal

Dow’s attempt to portray itself as responsible corporation is a lie since Dow refuses to compensate the victims of Agent Orange and clean up the toxic, dioxin-laden water and land in Vietnam resulting from its manufacture of Agent Orange used against the Vietnamese people during the U.S. war, and refuses to clean up and provide safe water to the people of Bhopal to whom it is responsible for the aftermath of a terrible chemical spill.
