    Because they are indigenous the world's reaction isn't strong enough. Remember the Spaniards and the Portuguese were always the cruelest settlers. Worse than the British or French. They are the cruelest

    Millions of indigenous forest-dwelling Indians face 'world's biggest eviction' in name of conservation 'The adivasis (tribals) are not encroachers, they are the virgin settlers and it is their homeland. Their way of life revolves around protecting the animals and the forest' Adam Withnall Delhi @adamwithnall Tuesday 23 July 2019 19:33 Click to follow The Independent Two Chenchu children look out from their bamboo home in the forests of Telangana. They face an uncertain future Two Chenchu children look out from their bamboo home in the forests of Telangana. They face an uncertain future ( Supplied ) India’s Supreme Court is set to decide the fate of almost two million forest-dwelling families facing what activists say would be the world’s largest mass eviction in the name of conservation. At a hearing on Wednesday, the apex court must decide whether to uphold its eviction notice towards all households living in protected forest areas whose claims to the territory under the Forest Rights Act (FRA) have been denied. Those affected include many members of India’s “adivasi” or indigenous community, rights groups say, whose claims to their ancestral land have been rejected due to a lack of paperwork or flaws in the application system.

But tribal leaders and the Indian government say the FRA provides much-needed protections to some 104 million adivasis who have historically lost out the most as their resource-rich lands were plundered to fuel the country’s economic boom in the second half of the 20th century.
