For anyone who saw the movie Avatar, this story will seem really familiar, except that in this case it is real. Tribes in the state of Orissa (in India) are currently trying to stop mining companies and industrialization of a mountain which they consider to be holy. The companies involved want to mine the mountain for minerals.
