Twenty people braved the rain and wind on Thursday 3rd December 2015, to gather at Greyfriar’s Kirkyard in Edinburgh to commemorate the 31st anniversary of the Bhopal Gas Disaster. With songs, poetry and statements of solidarity, we remembered all those who have died and been made ill in Bhopal and renewed our pledges to support the people of Bhopal in their ongoing struggle for health care, clean water and justice.
