Behind Dow’s Human Element Mask

Posted by The Visitor மேல் ஏப்ரல் 4, 2007

Thanks to Jace for this link.

Dow Chemical, unapologetic perpetrators of the Bhopal tragedy, have launched a “Human Element” campaign that “reintroduces the company and announces its vision of addressing some of the most pressing economic, social and environmental concerns facing the global community in the coming decade.” While continuing to deny responsibility for Bhopal.

This naturally requires a rebuttal. Paul Phare’s series of artworks, A glimpse behind the mask of Dow, is a personal response to the campaign. The series including 16 pieces, available in high resolution for distribution as printed posters or online. Spread the word.

I couldn’t have expressed my feelings better:

Every now and then you come across a novel so honest that it leaves you gasping for breath – like a blow to the solar plexus. The emotion is raw, the story honest and the language simply that of the people. You know that once you start reading it will break your heart and yet you keep turning the pages because the story has to be told. — Indian Express
