Bhopal Gas Disaster : Where is Justice ?

I just read this news on BBC about a Bhopal Gas victim and activist committing suicide out of frustration and thought I should share it -

It has been 20 years since the disaster and the justice is nowhere on the horizon. Those who were responsible have never been held accountable and the people continue to suffer. It gives me chills to think what this man must have endured in his life since childhood! After campaigning so hard for the justice to the victims, he couldn't see any fruits of his labor or hope that he felt compelled to end his life. As far as this tragedy is concerned, unfortunately, "humanity" is just another word in the dictionary...and concerned people like me and you can't/don't do anything more than signing online petitions that don't make any difference ! sigh.
