Protesters gather in front of the Union Carbide office in New Delhi, India, to protest the company's settlement in the 1984 poison gas disaster that killed 3,400 people. In Bhopal, about 5,000 demonstrators marched from the shanties affected by the gas leak to the state legislature. Police arrested 2,000 of them when they tried to cross a barricade near the building. The $470 million settlement absolved Carbide of any criminal or civil liability for the gas leak.
