|Oh, the Irony
- KS Wild Attend Conference Screening Bhopal Documentary
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Staff from KS Wild were actually in attendance at this event, the 2005 Public Interest Environmental Law Conference, the largest environmentalist gathering in the world (according to the brochure,) promoting a film produced for them. Do you think the KS Wild delegation sat through the showing of Litigating Disaster, a documentary about the Bhopal Gas Tragedy, perpetrated by Union Carbide? Union Carbide are a company who KS WILD receive funding from, via The Mead Foundation, which was set up by a co-founder of the company with his Union Carbide fortune?
I wonder how the film makers would have felt if they knew they were breathing the same air as people who suckle at the Union Carbide corporate tit. Did the KS Wild mob squirm in their seats with red faces, thinking everybody was looking at them? Did they flinch when they saw the corpses of babies and little children who died gasping for air, their lungs burning inside their bodies? Did they know then, or now, where the money comes from to pay their own mortgages and feed their own kids?
