Urge India to stop eviction of 8 million people

The camp of Asan Kudar, where over a hundred Khadia tribals, who were thrown out of Similipal Tiger Reserve, have lived under plastic since 2013. They’ve received only a tiny proportion of the promised compensation. Indian newspapers have heralded this eviction as a “successful” model.

On February 13 India’s Supreme Court ordered the eviction of up to 8 million tribal people from their forest homes – the largest mass eviction in the name of conservation, ever. It is unjust and inhumane.

It won’t help save the tiger, or India’s forests – tribal peoples are the best conservationists and guardians of their lands.

One tribal leader has said: “For millions of tribal people and other traditional forest dwellers, February 13 will go down in history as the day of Apocalypse.”

*Please help us stop this inhumane and immoral order by writing to the Ministers responsible before lives and forests are destroyed and lost.

To: Ministers for Tribal Affairs and Environment and Forests
