Corporate Killing (the other side?)
Jan 6th, 2003 at 4:02am
 
The Bhopal disaster was perhaps the most horrific occasion of corporate culpable homicide/manslaughter ever.

"On December 3, 1984, Union Carbide--now part of Dow--accidentally killed 5,000 residents of Bhopal, India, when its pesticide plant sprung a leak. It abandoned the plant without cleaning it up, and since then, an estimated 15,000 more people have died from complications, most resulting from chemicals released into the groundwater."

Dow make a rather unusual series of confessions and show that multinational global corporations can have a human side too:
