Rights activists on Friday held a noisy protest outside the London headquarters of the mining group Vedanta Resources, an FTSE 100 company, calling for it to be delisted from the London Stock Exchange because of its controversial trade practices and human rights record.

The protest coincided with similar demonstrations in India and America.

The company is embroiled in a controversy over its plans to mine tribal land in Orissa regarded sacred by the Dongria Kondh tribe.

Protesters from ‘Foil Vedanta’ and several other campaign groups carried banners highlighting the tribals’ concerns over the environmental threat from Vedanta’s mining activities.

“Vedanta is a London listed company and profits from this affiliation. It is typical of Vedanta to assume they are above the law and above public accountability,” a ‘Foil Vedanta’ spokesperson said.
