Episode Summary

Run For Your Life!
On Sunday April 18th, 2010, Dow Chemical sponsored the "Dow Run For Water" in cities around the globe. The event was shut down in London and Stockholm due to protests, but not in New York, where protesters were faced by an army of Yes Men posing as Dow Chemical public relations spokespeople. Dow Chemical is one of the largest chemical manufacturers in the world. During the Vietnam war, Dow became the sole supplier of napalm to the US Military; they also were the manufacturers of Agent Orange. In 1999, Dow purchased Union Carbide Corporation, the company behind the Bhopal Disaster of 1984. No one has yet been prosecuted for the disaster.moreless
