Greenprint Forum Screening: Mine – Story of a Sacred Mountain

Event 10 Venue: Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

When a giant London-based mining company came to mine India’s Niyamgiri hills for aluminium ore, the only thing standing in their way was the Dongria Kondh tribe. How did the Dongria take the company on – and win back the mountain they revere as a God? Followed by a Q&A chaired by Greenprint Director Andy Fryers.
