Amnesty International demands that charges be dropped on 47 protesters facing charges (including “attempted murder and rioting”) for protesting forced eviction in Orissa, India. The land is being taken from these people and sold to British-owned Vedanta Aluminum to build a toxic waste dump. Maoists in India have been involved for years in organizing widespread resistance against Vedanta’s land grabs in tribal areas. This video shows footage of adivasis (Indian tribal people) demonstrating against the eviction and the resulting police violence against them. (Thanks to Joe for the intro)
