[PDF] Vedanta Cares? Busting the myths about Vedanta’s operation in Lanjigarh, India
Author: ActionAid, Published on: 1 July 2007
...[L]ocal tribal families...on Niyamgiri mountain, in Kalahandi District, Orissa, India...are living in fear for their future due to the arrival of a combined bauxite mining and alumina refinery project in the heart of their ancestral domain by an Indian subsidiary of the UK mining and metals company, Vedanta Resources...Over the past three years, villagers claim to have
been involuntarily displaced from their homes and
refused compensation for their lost land. Their protests about the threat the project poses to the forests they depend upon for their livelihoods have been repeatedly ignored by officials and the company. They also have deep concerns about the impact of mining on Niyamgiri mountain, from which they derive many of the religious beliefs and cultural practices that define their tribal identity.
