Nationwide Protests on Forest Rights two days ahead of SC hearing on eviction
  • Protesters also condemn the draconian amendments to Indian Forest Act, 1927

    Protests erupt in different parts of the country on Monday, July 22 two days before the Supreme Court’s hearing on eviction of Adivasis and other traditional forest dwellers whose claims have been rejected under the Forest Rights Act, 2006.

    The protesters, forest dwelling people, Adivasis, Dalits and Other Traditional Forest Dwelling (OTFD) communities are condemning the attempts to dilute FRA, 2006 and also the draconian amendments to Indian Forest Act, 1927.

    The protest call has been given by the Bhumi Adhikan Andolan after a national consultation on forest rights on July 1 and July 2.

    “Millions of Adivasis and other traditional forest dwelling communities are facing the danger of eviction due to the Supreme Court ruling on February 13, 2019. If the claims under the FRA are rejected, then the States have been directed to evict Adivasis and traditional forest dwellers from the forests. While on the February 28, 2019 the Supreme Court stayed its earlier order putting orders for eviction on hold, the forest department is yet pushing people out of their lands destroying their farm fields. Several such instances have been reported in many states since February 2019. The Supreme Court is due to hear the different petitions on July 24, 2019. The BJP Government is also proposing draconian amendments to the Indian Forest Act, 1927 to facilitate corporate loot and exploitation of the tribal people. The two-Day National Consultation of Land and Forest Rights Movements held in Delhi had then decided to hold programmes and protest actions condemning the government actions, amendments to Forest Act on July 22 at the village, block, district and state level. Chief Ministers of different States of the country have been written to seeking their intervention in favour of the Forest Rights Act and the Adivasis in the Supreme Court.

    Protests erupt in different parts of the country on Monday, July 22 two days before the Supreme Court’s hearing on eviction of Adivasis and other traditional forest dwellers whose claims have been rejected under the Forest Rights Act, 2006.

    The protesters, forest dwelling people, Adivasis, Dalits and Other Traditional Forest Dwelling (OTFD) communities are condemning the attempts to dilute FRA, 2006 and also the draconian amendments to Indian Forest Act, 1927.

    The protest call has been given by the Bhumi Adhikan Andolan after a national consultation on forest rights on July 1 and July 2.

    “Millions of Adivasis and other traditional forest dwelling communities are facing the danger of eviction due to the Supreme Court ruling on February 13, 2019. If the claims under the FRA are rejected, then the States have been directed to evict Adivasis and traditional forest dwellers from the forests. While on the February 28, 2019 the Supreme Court stayed its earlier order putting orders for eviction on hold, the forest department is yet pushing people out of their lands destroying their farm fields. Several such instances have been reported in many states since February 2019. The Supreme Court is due to hear the different petitions on July 24, 2019. The BJP Government is also proposing draconian amendments to the Indian Forest Act, 1927 to facilitate corporate loot and exploitation of the tribal people. The two-Day National Consultation of Land and Forest Rights Movements held in Delhi had then decided to hold programmes and protest actions condemning the government actions, amendments to Forest Act on July 22 at the village, block, district and state level. Chief Ministers of different States of the country have been written to seeking their intervention in favour of the Forest Rights Act and the Adivasis in the Supreme Court.
