Dow Chemical, the owner of Union Carbide, key accused (under both criminal and civil law) in the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster, is attempting to recruit IIT-Madras students. Since Union Carbide has not even responded to a summons in the criminal case, Dow Chemical is guilty of shielding a criminally absconding corporation.
Besides, Dow Chemical refuses to clean up the severe contamination present at the factory site which causes interminable suffering to the gas survivors and their offspring even today. This is a petition to IIT-Madras to refuse campus recruitment to Dow Chemical.

(Please indicate if you are an IIT Alumnus.)
Indeed, it is part of a larger campaign to petition IIT-Madras to screen the corporations it allows for campus recruitment in order to disallow criminal corporations.
Please also write to the members of the IIT-Madras Senate which consists of the Faculty and is the main decision-making body. The list of professors on the Senate is available here.
