What does Climate Change have to do with Industries?

Bhan comes from Chhattisgarh, an area where locals are often forcefully evicted to make way for new factories and mining sites. This has spurred Bhan to be a vociferous critic of such social injustices and she has been actively participating in movements and demonstrations since 5 years ago. Industrialization has polluted our air, land and water. This is what local communities say about large corporations and factories that stretches across Chhattisgarh. As natural resources are increasingly laden with toxicity, many farmers see agriculture as a loss making profession, and are forced to uproot themselves and find work in cities. This video is part of a project by Video Volunteers and the Indian Network for Ethics and Climate Change to document the effects of climate change on local communities across 14 states in India. These communities tell our CCs how changing weather patterns affects their livelihoods and that little has been done to help them cope.
