first_imgExploitation minière : l’Inde interdit la destruction d’une montagne sacréeInde – Le ministère indien de l’Environnement a annoncé mardi 24 août qu’il rejetait la demande du groupe industriel Vedanta d’exploiter une mine de bauxite dans l’est du pays. Motif : l’impact environnemental, mais surtout humain pour une tribu locale attachée à son territoire. Une victoire saluée par les ONG.Une “stupéfiante victoire de David contre Goliath”, comme le souligne Survival International, une organisation non gouvernementale qui veille aux droits des peuples indigènes du monde. À lire aussiDes canards d’élevage découvrent les plaisirs de l’eau après avoir été libérés en IndeLes 8.000 membres de la tribu des Dongria Kondh (État de l’Orissa, est de l’Inde) ont gagné leur combat : le gouvernement, suivant les recommandations du comité indien sur les forêts (FAC), a estimé que l’exploitation de la bauxite sur leur territoire aurait un impact trop important sur l’écosystème, l’approvisionnement en eau et l’accès de la tribu à son site sacrée, menaçant sa survie même. Les autochtones considèrent en effet la montagne Niyamgiri – prévue pour recevoir une mine à ciel ouvert – comme  la demeure du dieu Niyam Raja, qui les protège.Le projet minier initié par Vedanta, géant indo-britannique de l’aluminium, était controversé depuis son annonce en 2005, et les promesses du groupe industriel en termes de création d’emplois, d’aide médicale et éducative pour la population locale, avaient séduit l’État d’Orissa, d’ailleurs pointé du doigt. Mais elles n’ont pu convaincre les autorités fédérales, accusant par ailleurs Vedanta d’activités illégales, notamment dans le domaine forestier.  Les différentes tribus locales et les ONG, durement impliquées dans ce conflit, se félicitent de leur succès, notamment ActionAid International, qui évoque “une victoire historique pour le peuple indigène et la démocratie indienne”.
