Chennai-Born Rapper Takes On Unilever For Mercury Contamination
the video takes an undisguised jab at Unilever for its failure to clean up mercury contamination or compensate workers affected by its thermometer factory in Kodaikanal.
In 2001, residents of Kodaikanal uncovered a dumpsite with toxic mercury waste from a thermometer factory run by Unilever’s Indian subsidiary Hindustan Lever.

Unilever had also dumped mercury containing waste in part of the Shola forests within the company’s property.
