Bhopal Fashion: Fashion with a Statement

Last year, my Facebook friend, Caitlyn, created t-shirts in support of relief for the Bhopal disaster. This was, honestly, the first I had heard of the disaster. I did a bit of research; realized the horror and tragedy that took place and did my best to support Caitlyn's efforts. I purchased  the recycled statement t-shirt her and her group had created. 

Today, she posted this onto Facebook:

"The night of December 2-3rd marks the 28th anniversary of the ongoing industrial disaster in Bhopal, India.

That's 28 years of suffering the inter-generational effects of toxic gas exposure. 28 years of drinking poisoned, contaminated water. 28 years of living in fear, wondering if your children will be born with mental or physical birth defects. 28 years of being denied justice.

Please take a moment to reflect on Bhopal's struggle and the world we all live in--a world in which multinational corporations can get away killing 25,000 people and leaving 100,000 more suffering from a toxic mess they refuse to clean up.

Bhopal may be on the other side of the globe to many of you, but their struggle for justice and corporate accountability is just as relevant. We all live in Bhopal"

So in honor of this day, I've created my Fashion with a Statement outfit.
