Andhra Women Protest With Noose Around Neck. Find out why

  • In Andhra Pradesh's Uravakonda town, in a cashew garden, tribal women are marking a protest with makeshift nooses around their necks.

  • The women allege that the land they cultivate is being taken away forcibly and allotted to a granite mining company.

  • They state that if the cashew gardens are taken away, then death is their only option.

  • "We have not taken any money from any granite company. Some people have illegally given away our lands in exchange for money. We don't have papers of land ownership. The government had allowed us to cultivate this land. But now they are bringing JCBs to flatten the crop," the protesting women are seen stating in a video.
