Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM): Solidarity Dialogue with four representatives from two Iban communities in Sungai Sebatuk, Batu Niah and Sungai Buri, Bakong, both in Miri, Sarawak. The dialogue focuses on how the loss of NCR by monoculture plantations have affected communities livelihood, culture and ecology

  • hosted by SAM and North South Initiative, participated by KAMY and other CSOs

SAM also publish a report on their research on the socio-environmental impacts of large pulp and paper, timber tree and oil palm plantations in Sarawak. You can download it on their website.


Saban hari ada saja berita pergeseran antara kawan kawan asal/asli kita samada dengan polis & kapitalis, di semenanjung dan juga di Borneo.

Jok Jau (SAM koordinator Sarawak), Gasah & Peter ( dari Persatuan Sg Buri ) dan Bangga & Lachi ( dari Persatuan Rumah Lachi) dari Sarawak berkongsi bagaimana tanah mereka, Native Customary Rights (NCR), hilang kepada kapitalis agrobisnes monokultur. Kesannya ialah impak berat kepada komuniti rumah panjang Iban dan generasi akan datang, dan juga ekologi persekitaran yang hilang fungsi asas.


Sekali lagi, kepincangan pengurusan sumber asli dan perspektif undang undang eksekutif berkaitan NCR adalah tunjang utama kepada kehilangan hutan dan pencabulan hak asasi rakyat malaysia.


Teruskan berjuang kepada komuniti yang mempertahankan hak mereka dan terima kasih kepada SAM kerana membawa isu isu ini kehadapan, lengkap bersama dokumentasi menyeluruh.
