About this Event

The Bhopal Medical Appeal invite you to join us for an evening as we assess the ongoing situation in Bhopal 35 years after Union Carbide’s disaster. Hear how poisons from the derelict Carbide factory continue to reach new wells and new wombs, affecting the health of thousands. Learn how the refusal of Bhopalis to be victims keeps a life of dignity and justice within reach.

Programme:

6-6.30pm: Arrival and Exhibition Viewing

On arrival, there will be an opportunity to view an exhibition of photographs from Bhopal by award-winning photographer Judah Passow.

6.30-7.15pm: Bhopal Speakers, Q&A Session

The evening will open with two talks by speakers from Bhopal who will be joining us via a live web link. The first will be from Nousheen Khan, a second-generation survivor of the disaster and speech therapist working with damaged children in Bhopal, and the second from Sathyu Sarangi of the Bhopal Group for Information and Action. The talks will be followed by an audience Q&A moderated by our guest Peter Frankental of Amnesty UK.

7.15-7.40: Tim Edwards Interviews Judah Passow, Q&A Session

The second session of the evening will open with a quick talk about the history of the Bhopal Medical Appeal from our Executive Trustee, Tim Edwards. Tim will then be joined by photographer Judah Passow for an interview, in which they will discuss Judah’s work on Bhopal and his experiences visiting the city. This will again be followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Peter Frankental.

7.40-8.40pm: Film Screening ‘Where Do the Children Play’

After a short break, there will be a screening of ‘Where Do the Children Play’ (2015), documenting the story of how survivors undertook an 800km padyatra from Bhopal to Delhi to meet then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. From director B. Kailasam.

8.40-9pm: Close

After the film there will be a final opportunity to view the exhibition and chat to the speakers, as well as the staff of the Bhopal Medical Appeal.

All proceeds from ticket sales go to support the people of Bhopal. Tickets will also be available on the door.
