Three thousand seven hundred people died immediately in the world's worst industrial disaster in 1984 when gas leaked from a pesticides plant owned by the US multinational Union Carbide in Bhopal. For decades, survivors have been fighting to have the site cleaned up, but they say the efforts were slowed when Michigan-based Dow Chemical took over Union Carbide in 2001.
