The isolated Jarawa tribe, having hit the headlines for surviving the 2004 tsunami intact, are in danger of being wiped out completely by settlers invading their land. Indian settlers are stealing the animals the Jarawa hunt, plying them with alcohol and tobacco, sexually abusing Jarawa women and using the men as cheap labour. Outsiders also bring the risk of disease to which the Jarawa, following thousands of years of isolation, have no immunity.
Survival International will be holding a weekly vigil outside India House in Aldwych, between 12.30 and 2.00pm
