Tree Occupation in India

Photo | 3 October, 2012

Greenpeace activist Brikesh Singh occupies a tree called ëJunglistan Nivasí for one month. Junglistan Nivas has a very small room built on an existing machan (tree house). It took a Greenpeace team a month to build the tree house, and it was erected without damaging the tree in anyway. With this activity Mr Singh and Greenpeace call for the protection of the Chandrapur forest and ask the Indian government to stop all new coal mining allocations and forest clearances. A banner on the tree house reads "Save Junglistan - Forests not coal".09/03/2012
