Indian government gives go ahead to controversial Vedanta mine in Orissa

After a five year struggle by tribal people the Indian government has given the go ahead for a controversial mine planned by UK company Vedanta which will destroy a sacred mountain that is the ancestral home to thousands of people. In a document received by ActionAid yesterday dated 28th April, The Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) gave the environmental clearance to British-listed company Vedanta to start mining. The notification states a period of 30 days to file an appeal against this clearance on environmental grounds but full-scale mining could start at any time.
