Fomentos transport iron ore with police protection

Reports received from Colamb at 8.30 am in the morning says that Fomentos has began transportation of Iron Ore from Forest land from Hiralal Khodidas mine T.C. No. 06/1949. Jeep load of policemen are stationed on the mines to provide protection to the mining company since early morning today. Indigenous People are opposing the mining plans of corporate due to major negative impact on the community agriculture and water bodies.

Fomentos were stopped from carrying on mining transportation due to people's protests and litigation since January 2008. Now Fomentos have been using Police force to bulldoze Colamb villagers in several ways including implicating them in false and fabricated cases.
