Human rights violations of Indigenous peoples, especially land-grabbing, continued unabated
At least eight families of the Mro community, whose houses were allegedly set ablaze and vandalised by people of a rubber plantation in a village in Bandarban’s Lama upazila, are now living under the open sky, in the chilling winter cold.
The book is a complete treatise on the development of the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT).
At least 37 landless families, mostly from the indigenous Pahan community, have been living in the open in Naogaon's Dhamurhat upazila since early Monday, when their shacks were burnt down while they were asleep.
The lady of the house carried the first batch of drinking water from the nearby dying Sangu River with her two-month-old daughter in tow.
It is a story that repeats over and over: An indigenous community living for generations in an area suddenly being told that they will be evicted because some influential has decided to use it for lucrative purposes.
