It's Not a Wrap!

 In August I wrote about Dow Chemicals wrapping the London Olympics stadium in some form of plastic sheet, and displaying its logo on the wrap.

"Dow, the chemical company with an "interesting" history, will be allowed to promote and display its logo on certain sections of the Olympic Stadium after winning the right to produce the £6M "wrap" that will cover the exterior of the stadium."

People have finally woken up to Dow's controversial past.

The Indian Olympic Association has announced that it will be holding a vote next month on whether or not to boycott the London Olympic Games.

The Indian government is still pursuing Dow for £1.1BN of compensation for the victims of the Bhopal disaster (Dow purchased Union Carbide 16 years after the disaster).

Pressure is mounting on Locog to abandon its deal with Dow.
