Two very powerful images designed to draw attention to the intransigence of the US authorities when it comes to holding their own multinational corporations to account for their actions in foreign (usually poorer) countries.
The contrast between the way BP was held to account, for the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and the way Dow/ Union Carbide remain on the run from criminal charges in Bhopal is particularly stark.
Please circulate these images as that is where their power lies.

Revers graffiti piece created by Moose Curtis and dedicated to the survivors of the Bhopal Disaster
In Moose’s own words:
"I was being filmed by CNN when I made the piece, ( its just rainwater fired against wooden stencils on some really toxic looking sea wall lichen) it represented the horrid ring of poison created by the original pollution and the take over of Union Carbide by the drug company (Dow Chemical) who are the poison on the other half of the eternity ring. I talked about what little I know about the disaster, while they filmed, but they edited the whole thing out just having me say at the end of the film that ’ I really liked it and it looked good".
