Satinath (Sathyu) Sarangi


Sathyu Sarangi, founder of the Bhopal Group for Information and Action and administrator at the Sambhavna Clinic and Research Center, is probably the most important activist and advocate internationally for the gas-affected people of Bhopal. She offered a rare inside look at the political dimensions of Bhopal gas catastrophe. December 2004 will mark the 20th anniversary of the explosion at the Union Carbide (Dow) pesticide plant, which killed tens of thousands, many of them immediately, many more in the years since. Two activists who work with Sathyu, Rashida Bee and Champa Devi Shukla, won the prestigious $125,000 Goldman Environmental Prize in recognition of their work with and for the victims of the disaster. Sathyu spoke about the confluence of human rights, the environment, health, and corporate responsibility.
