Church urged to stop Vedanta mine

Pressure was mounting on the Church of England tonight to use its power as a shareholder to stop mining company Vedanta Resources from opening a bauxite mine in a sacred part of India...After the meeting, the company urged the NGOs, which have been helping the tribal people to gain a voice, to give up their protest campaigns. "We are proceeding with the project on the basis agreed with them and we urge these NGOs to respect the decision of the legitimate authority in India, the world's largest democracy," the company said.
