Villagers in Jagatsinghpur, India have been to hell and back fighting giant corporations intent on stealing their land and destroying their forest.
They’ve been arrested, attacked, lost their jobs. And just when they managed to drive one greedy steel company out of their home, another looks set to swoop in.
They’re determined to protect the forest that their livelihoods depend on -- and a public environmental hearing coming up next month might be their last chance to stop the land-grabbers of JSW Utkal Steel. But they need money to get there and prepare for the legal fees they’ll likely face from heavy policing and arrests.
So they’re depending on you and me. Can you make an urgent donation so these villagers can defend their home against the steel industry?
