Unreasonable Women Continue Hunger Strike Against Dow Chemical

Unreasonable Women Continue Hunger Strike
Against Dow Chemical,
from various sources
After a month of fasting, Diane Wilson has created a groundswell of
activists who want to force Dow Chemical to accept responsibility
for the toxic disaster in Bhopal, India. ‘On Aug. 6, Day 21 of her
strike, Diane’s body is weaker; yet her determination is stronger
than ever,’ writes Jodie Evans in an Alternet update.
More than 500 people have joined in Wilson’s strike, reports Evans,
a member of a group called Unreasonable Women for the Earth. The
strike will continue until August 27; meanwhile, the
Worldwide Hunger Relay Strike Web site offers
resources for campaigners and other ways you can help.
