To the Union Carbides of the World

India loves being raped. Come.

If you can only bear to read one more piece of writing about the verdict, read this:

In fact, read it even if you cant bear to read another word of rhetoric. This one is no rhetoric.. pure facts. Brief. incisive. Highly Recommended.

BTW, did you know that Eveready Batteries is a product of Union Carbide?

Came to you from G's blog. You couldn't have out it more correctly. We invite people to take advantage of us. Sacrifice the lives of our innocent people for nothing and don't even have the slightest guilt.

I wasn't sure, but I had heard and I haven't used Eveready Batteries for years now... I also found it shocking when Red Eveready ad came on the TV... (Slogan - Gimme Red)... Whoever created and supported the ad, felt nothing??? But I guess unless there is a lot of campaigning, one doesn't even realise, who the makers are.

How do we know said...
