Happy birthday to Survival International
Survival International, "the movement for tribal peoples", celebrates its 40th birthday this month.
One piece of news on Survival International's website is that Vedanta Resources has launched an unprecedented attack on the organisation. There is a film narrated by Joanna Lumley on the conflict between Vedanta and the traditional life of the Dongria Kondh people in Orissa, eastern India.
Update, Feb. 2010: See Amnesty's web page, Vedanta mine threatens indigenous communities.
