VEDANTA’S BILLIONS & THE CITY OF LONDON
35-39 London St RG1 4PS

On 22 May 2018 thirteen people, including women and children, were, shot dead by police on their 100th day of protest against pollution by British mining company Vedanta Resources’ copper smelter in Tamil Nadu, India. Samarendra Das and Miriam Rose from grassroots solidarity group Foil Vedanta share cutting edge research, and expose the complicity of the City of London and the Financial Conduct Authority in Vedanta’s abuses. 

 Update - Few weeks ago Vedanta was delisted from the London Stock Exchange -  Let's celebrate with Refreshments & snacks.
