Contrary to what Auroville Town Development Council (ATDC) had previously informed the Youth Centre and Bliss Forest stewards, bulldozers (from Auroville Road Service) arrive at Bliss forest, Lilaloka entrance on December 4th, at 9AM. They are accompanied by members of ATDC, and a few Aurovilians who support this action. They start uprooting trees. The caretakers arrive and block the work. No Work Order is presented by the people doing the clearing work.
