The waste was abandoned in Bhopal in 1984 and has been poisoning people there ever since. Ten Greenpeace activists, including John Passacantando, Executive Director of Greenpeace in the U.S. and Rashida Bee, leader of the Bhopal Gas Victim Women's Union, all constituents of the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, unloaded 250 kg of the waste safely contained in seven barrels from the Greenpeace ship 'Arctic Sunrise' and start delivering it to Dow's largest European operation, Dow Benelux in the Netherlands. Three activists abseil down the building and hang eight huge photographs depicting Dow's corporate crime in Bhopal and a banner which calls on Dow to clean up Bhopal. We’ll carry on confronting Dow with this corporate crime until it cleans up its toxic fallout in Bhopal and stops poisoning us.
