Default "Avatar tribe" wins over Mining Giant

Recently in the news. I think it's awesome. So far I haven't gotten enough information, so I can't say too much about it, but it looks like a group of people fighting the power, and winning! Hoo-rah!

Oh, and I didn't get to see the video on CNN, computer's not loading it, so I don't know what's on there.

Just as a glance, this looks like a really cool story. A lot of similarities. Share your thoughts!

Holy crap... They managed it? They actually managed it?

I truly am astounded...

This is exactly the kind of news that still gives me some kind of faith in our race.

Clampdown on sacred ritual as Vedanta mine appeal approaches - Survival International
Victory over Vedanta in 2010 was historic, but April's court case threatens the Dongria once again.

Quote:
Security forces are cracking down on the Dongria Kondh tribe as they prepare for a religious festival this weekend at the top of India’s most contentious mountain.

Hundreds are determined to attend the Niyamraja ritual in the sacred Niyamgiri Hills, which are at the center of a controversial mining project involving UK company Vedanta Resources.

During the worship, the Dongria will take an oath pledging never to leave the mountain, which faces renewed threats as companies eye its valuable resources.

The Dongria have fought hard to resist such advances, but speaking out against proposed mining continues to be dangerous
...
The tribe’s victory in 2010 over the mining giant, which wanted to dig an open-pit mine to reach the mountain’s aluminum-ore deposits, was historic.

However, their way of life is once again in danger as the controversy is reconsidered by India’s highest court on April 9 this year.
They will try again and again until they manage to get them off the mountain and mine it, it seems. Honestly - beating up people that prepare food for a sacred ceremony in which the people renew their relationship to the mountain - how low can they get.

Sure there is. But it seems that the celebrations for final victory were a bit premature - the victory will have to be defended! I dont say give up - on the contrary, I think the fight goes on, though I would have preferred it if there would not have to be a fight. What I am saying is that as long as global capitalist industrial corporations are around, there will probably be not much time for any land based people to sit back and relax, enjoying their victory...
