Students gathered to honor the 8,000 that died and hundreds of thousands affected by the Bhopal gas tragedy.

UT students gathered at the West Mall today to commemorate the 26th anniversary of the Bhopal gas tragedy that claimed the lives of 8,000 and affected over 100,000 others.

KUT News intern Nick Robertson went to the rally to get a better understanding of the tragedy, and how protestors say University of Texas administrators and the City of Austin can help the victims find justice.
