Will the eco hot spot of Niyamgiri hills in tribal Orissa be ravaged by mining?

It’s been almost a decade, but this non-violent movement is peaking amid the dense, pristine wild forests, mountains and streams, wildlife, flora and fauna of the remote Niyamgiri hills near Lanjigada in Koraput-Kalahari, inhabited by Dongria-Kondh tribals. The movement is eight-year-old and is in no mood to relent despite a Supreme Court judgement which has okayed the Vedanta project for mining. Not only does it draw its strength from its ancient indigenous ecological heritage, it has the backing of several expert committees, environmentalists and activists, who have pitch-forked the struggle against the British multinational owned by billionaire Anil Agarwal like the legendary ‘Silent Valley movement’.
