INDIA UPDATE: January 30 2006
30th January 2006
Mines, Minerals and People (mmP) India has called for a moratorium on all new mines in the country, following the Kalinganagar Massacre a month ago.
At the same time, two Jharkand-based organisations have mapped out, in clearer and more damning detail than before, exactly who was responsible for the appalling killings and mutilations.
Elsewhere in India, the repercussions of the event have triggered demands for the cancellation of uranium, bauxite, and other mines.
