Parents for Inclusion and the Alliance for Inclusive Education

Parents for Inclusion and the Alliance for Inclusive Education are national charities based at 336 Brixton Road, London SW9 7AA. The main aim of our organisations is to become effective allies to young people who are in danger of exclusion, from ordinary schools, from play, even within the family. We train professionals, help empower parents, and give the young people a voice. They are grass-roots organisations run by disabled people and parents themselves, and as such are largely unfunded. www.parentsforinclusion.org

The Bhopal Gas Disaster

It is 25 years since the world's worst industrial-environmental disaster took place in Bhopal, India. On 3rd December 1984 a plume of toxic gas leaked from a pesticide factory owned by US multinational Union Carbide. An estimated 8,000 people were killed within days and a further 15,000 have since died from their injuries. Many gas survivors continue to suffer ill health, and children are born with congenital abnormalities. The company has always refused to provide toxicological information on the gases which leaked. Union Carbide negotiated an 'out of court' settlement with the Government of India in1989 which has been rejected as inadequate by the survivors. The company, which was acquired by Dow Chemical Company in 2001, is still facing charges in India.
