When are these mining companies going to give us a break and stop the destruction of sacred lands and the water that surrounds this land. We have to keep fighting to stop this.

Sadly these indigenous people are always going to have it tough - when the white man wants something he will stop at nothing to get it.

Failure to respect the Indians' sacred mountain shows the inability to see other than crass income on short-term period. These mining capitalists should be stopped immediately before they destroy more

noted. Seems like the Indians here and afar, are treated as an inconvenience when big business finds something that they can steal from the indigenous peoples and then sell it to others, with little cost to them other than harvesting their stolen products e it oil, wood, medicine, etc...

Nothing will stop these businesses until there is nothing left to steal and sell.

Once the mountain is depleted of its resources, it will be destroyed and worthless to the Dongria Kondh tribe or anyone else.
However, the tribe and their culture could survive for eons.

Besides, the fact, that evidence is surfacing that aluminum is quite a dangerous substance. It has been linked to Alzheimers disease. The Scandinavian countries have been ahead of this research, for quite some time.
