Save Colamb from mining terrorism!

Gawda, Kunbi, Velip and Dhangar Federation (GAKUVED) yesterday marched through the streets of Panjim in a silent protest in Solidarity with People from Colamb, Sanguem, Goa. Around 120 people from different parts of Goa participated in the march. It was organised to create awareness about possible annihilation of the Colamb village from the Map of Goa if the mining industry is allowed to let loose in the village.

The banner in a protest procession blared "Save Colamb from mining terrorism". This is important as Fomentos are caring on the mining trade in Colamb against the wishes of local adivasis under police protection. State of Goa and Union of India are collaborating with mining company's act of terrorism with their active support.

After the protest march group then participated in the book release function of the CSE publication on mining "Rich Lands, Poor People" in Panjim.
