While there is increasing evidence of peasants actively protesting against such issues as the diversion of water resources, they have not been able to effectively organise to protect themselves against police atrocities. A case in point is the police attack on the peasant mobilisation in Bagur-Naville in Hassan district against the construction of a water tunnel meant to divert water away from the area.
