The Global Intelligence Files

On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor's web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

Corporation (Midland, MI), who acquired Union Carbide in 2001, refuses to
clean up the abandoned pesticide plant, which has caused a growing
environmental and public health crisis.
30 concerned activists from throughout the U.S., and a couple from Europe,
met on MIT's campus to learn about the Bhopal disaster from field experts.
They now aim to mobilize their own community members on the human rights
Conference organizers Shana Ortman (San Francisco), Claire Rosenfeld
(Olympia, WA), and Leonid Chindelevitch (Cambridge, MA) warn that "we all
live in Bhopal." Keynote speaker Gary Cohen, director of the Environmental
Health Fund, echoed this reality when he said, "the same chemicals are in
