IamA Martin Sheen, actor and activist - AMA!
My real name is Ramon Estevez, but you may know me as Mr. President from "The West Wing".
I'm here today to talk about my new film, Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. It's the true story of the worst industrial accident of the 20th Century. On December 3rd, 1984, toxic gas leaked from the Union Carbide chemical plant in Bhopal, India and killed 12,000 men, women, and children overnight. Another 13,000 perished over the next 30 years due to still-contaminated water supplies and related birth-defects.
This film is particularly important to me, and I would encourage you to learn more about the tragedy here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhopal_disaster
Thanks and please check out the film here on iTunes starting tomorrow, February 3rd: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/bhopal-a-prayer-for-rain/id955743061

EDIT 2:09 PST Thanks everyone - I had a wonderful time (but this wasn't it). But seriously, thank you so much for your questions and your kind words. If you can, please go read up on the Bhopal disaster and see our film, Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain.
