Further felling of trees in Aarey will destroy sustenance of remaining Adivasis

The Bhoyes, whose eviction has been stayed by a 2018 High Court order, are now the only family from Prajapur to continue practicing indigenous land use; harvesting fruits, tubers and a few vegetables for personal consumption and sale. The natural resources that allow them to do so are now under threat, with the MMRCL prepared to fell 124 trees in the area, of which 75 are tended to by the Bhoyes.

Mumbai, India - April 11, 2023: Contrary to what many believe, the 177 additional trees that the MMRCL is now seeking to cut in Aarey Colony for Metro-3, are not actually located in the contentious depot plot. They can be found some distance away on a hillock in Prajapur Pada, an Adivasi settlement, which has been practising agriculture and horticulture on project affected lands for decades. At least 75 of the earmarked trees, including jamun, jackfruit, chickoo and banana varieties, are situated on the land of the Bhoye family, belonging to the Kokna Scheduled Tribe, in Mumbai, India, on Tuesday, April 11, 2023.
