On December 3, 2004, twenty years to the day since the Bhopal disaster, the Yes Men (http://www.theyesmen.org) infiltrated a major international news outlet to draw fresh attention to an horrific event that had claimed thousands of lives, and permanently poisoned many more. Jude Finisterra (a pseudonym), posing as a spokesperson for Dow (which had recently bought Union Carbide), announced on BBC World Television that the company had decided to take full responsibility for the events in Bhopal. This action, and many more, are featured in the documentary The Yes Men Fix the World (Bichlbaum, Bonanno, & Engfehr, 2009).
