Why the Penan set up blockades

The indigenous group wants the government to gazette their village forest reserves as Communal Forests and to stop logging companies from encroaching into their land, says Ajang Kiew.

 

We would like to make some clarifications about the five blockades which have been set up by Penan communities in Baram recently to avoid any misunderstanding on the part of other parties. The villages which are involved in this blockade are Long Sayan and Long Belok in Sungai Apoh, Long Lutin in Sungai Patah, Long Kevok in Sungai Layun, Tutoh and the nomadic group Ba’ Bevan in Sungai Si’ang, Tutoh.

Here we would like to explain why those blockades were set up.

Let me ask the victims of the log-jam ask for forgiveness from the god-and I get some media limelight for performing a ceremony to fool the people! The humans in the `human error' can go free, but some animals have to suffer in the `miring'!

Radio Free Sarawak (see side bar logo for link) aired an interview with James Masing who insist that the scadalous log-jam on Rajang river 1 month ago was an human error which come from the loggers as well as the dereliction of duty of 2 relevant ministries ie the Ministry of environment and the forestry. So why not make these guilty folks pay for their gargantuan errors? Their errors had been estimated to cost millions of loses to the people around Rajang River-including inconveniences of    transport for a week, damages to several jetties and even a death due to the delay in transport. In conducting a `miring’ to appease the god the picture was distorted: the wrong people are asked to ask for forgiveness from the god!  Certainly it was not the tuai rumah who were victims of illegal logging who should ask for forgiveness from the god!
