Tell Vedanta to stop attack on Dongria Kondh

Why: In August 2010 India's Dongria Kondh tribe won a historic victory when Vedanta's plans to mine in the Niyamgiri Hills were stopped by the government. But that success is currently under threat from a challenge in India's Supreme Court. We will be at the AGM to tell Vedanta - and its shareholders and investors - that resistance to the mine is still strong, and that it's time to stop trying to mine in the Niyamgiri Hills, and to leave the Dongria Kondh to decide their own future.

Where: The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE
