Olympics 2012 Protest

Design & People Poster (April 2012)
One World, One Dream — A World Without Dow 

Posters from Design & People

In the 1950s the Dow company managed Rocky Flats Plant, a nuclear weapons production facility that produced Plutonium. In the 60s, Dow Chemical actively manufactured Agent Orange, a dioxin chemical defoliant for US military to be used in the Vietnam War. And in the 80s, in Bhopal, India, the Dow Chemicals leaked tonnes of deadly poisonous gas killing up to 25,000 people and injuring millions. In 2012, the very same US multinational company responsible for the deaths of millions of people worldwide is sponsoring another human tragedy with the London Olympics 2012, by becoming one of the worldwide partners of the Games along with other corporate criminals such as Coca-Cola, MacDonalds, P&G, Cadbury's etc. We believe that by accepting the dirty corporate sponsorship money from Dow by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG), the sanctity of the Olympics, an global event meant to celebrate the spirit of the mankind is now ruined forever.
