Dow’s Effigy Will Burn Tonight

On the 29th anniversary of the Bhopal Disaster, a giant effigy, four metres tall, built of mud and straw stands ready to burn as a part of the traditional burning of hated public figures.

Politicians, crooks, or in the case of the Bhopalis, a giant, horned, fork-tailed, devil, an executive from Dow Chemical.

These people are angry. He should take note.
