The Dongria Kondh’s historic struggle over Vedanta Resources has the potential to become a turning point in India. The Indian government has protected the tribe’s rights over corporate interests.

However, at this crucial time the Dongria are facing harassment and intimidation.

How you can help

Please write now to the Indian government and urge it to ensure the Dongria’s right to choose their future is upheld.

Dear Minister Javadekar

Will my letter make a difference?
Yes. Time and again, letters from Survival supporters have called governments and organisations to account. Policies have changed and lives have been saved.

Should I post, fax or email?
The most powerful way is to print and post your letter. We will email you a ready-to-print PDF of your letter, together with postage information.

We sometimes also publish email addresses or fax numbers where there is a realistic chance of these being read. However, email addresses change and fax machines get unplugged. If you can, please post your letter.
