 Great news: following the 3000 emails which you sent to environment minister Jairam Ramesh, news is in to-day that Vedanta’s controversial bauxite mine on Dongria Kondh tribal land at Niyamgiri in India has been stopped. You can see the story in The Guardian or theMinistry of Environment and Forests decision  itself on the ministry website. Furthermore, Ramesh has been quoted as saying that  Vedanta had committed ” very serious violations of environment act and forest right act,” and that his department was looking at taking punitive action against the company. The news sent Vedanta shares down 6%.
