From the health of the Mesoamerican coral reef to child labor in Uzbekistan’s cotton fields, Ripple publicizes important stories around the globe. Along with the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal, for example, we drew worldwide attention to the 20th and 25th anniversaries of this horrific pesticide factory explosion, which killed thousands of people in Bhopal, India, and left toxic pollution in the water and soil. Finally, in May of 2012, after years of relentless activism and publicity, the Indian Supreme Court ordered the city to provide clean water to the worst affected areas.
