In Orissa, India, UK company Vedanta wants to create a giant open-cast bauxite mine on the Dongria Kondh tribes’ sacred Niyamgiri mountain, polluting rivers and destroying forests rich in wildlife such as tigers, leopards, elephants and mouse deer. Thousands of tribe people will be displaced.

The Orissa government have signed the land over to Vedanta for a pittance, but pressure in Norway has led to disinvestment, and now there is a focus on doing the same with British investors. There will be a picket at Coutts Bank – a Vedanta shareholder – on June 10th, 6.45pm at 440 Strand, London.
