Thousands of local people from around 14 villages in the Mahan region of Singrauli - including a large number of women and children - come together for a public rally in Amelia Village to oppose mining in Mahan's forests. The rally marks the beginning of a 'Van Satyagraha' (Forest Protest).
The rally in Amelia village comes days after the Environment Minister, Veerappa Moily granted the Stage II forest clearance to Mahan coal block, allocated to Mahan Coal Ltd – a joint venture of Essar and Hindalco. The villagers declared this clearance, null and void. They presented evidence that the special Gram Sabha resolution on Forest Rights Act –based on which, the Stage II forest clearance has been given – was forged.
