Indian writer and activist Arundhati Roy addresses protesters in Delhi
Protesters from Foil Vedanta and other organizations held a loud carnival demonstration at the AGM of controversial FTSE 100 mining company Vedanta on Thursday at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square London. A parallel demo was held in Johannesburg. The day before in Delhi almost a hundred people braved rains to raise their protest at Odisha Bhawan. Meanwhile, the majority of tribal village meetings given legal power by the Supreme Court of India have unanimously voted against Vedanta’s flagship Niyamgiri mine.
