5 years after the original Dow Chemical hoax, The Yes Men and the Bhopal Medical Appeal are launching B'eau-pal: attractively bottled, yet toxic, water from Bhopal, the site of the Union Carbide cyanide chemical disaster that took place 25 years ago. The label, designed by London-based firm Kennedy and Monk, in support of the Bhopal cause, underlines Dow's continued refusal to take responsibility for this disaster by communicating the extremely disastrous effects that continue to wreak havoc on the area. For more information about the Bhopal Medical Appeal effort and the B'eau-pal water protest at Dow, read the Yes Men's press release.
