Indians Lose Land to Economic Growth

Indians are losing land their land to India's economic growth, but are not reaping the benefits, according to the NY Times.

Mines and Dams are being built on land that used to belong to Indian citizens, but the citizens are not getting any benefits.

Over the past few decades the governments industrial and public works projects have displaced people from their land. Citizens have gone on a 200-Mile protest in hopes the government will find a way to balance economic growth and maintaining their citizen's property rights.

The walk will take approximately 26 days.
