Justice for women workers
On December 18, a women's union consisting of survivors of the gas tragedy won a 12-year long dispute in the M.P.'s Courts.

Produce the absconder!
Why is the CBI attempting to dilute charges framed against Warren Andersen, CEO of Union Carbide at the time of Bhopal tragedy. The magistrate overseeing the hearings was sharply critical, and demanded that the bureau apprise him of its efforts to extradite him, rather than reduce the charges.
