Thousands protest, demanding halt to evictions and amendments to Forest Rights Act, Scheduling of Adivasi Areas - Press Release by Campaign for Survival and Dignity, India

Thousands of people have come on to the streets between May 7th and 11th in response to the call to action of the Campaign for Survival and Dignity, a federation of tribal and forest dwellers' organisations from across the country. The protesters demanded an immediate halt to the evictions taking place across India, where adivasis and forest dwellers are being targeted in a deliberate effort to prevent them claiming their rights under the historic Forest Rights Act passed in December last year.
