John Labo was the land rights activist who set up a blockade around Merarap timber camp in Lawas, aimed at stopping the Sabah Sarawak Gas Pipeline Project from passing through their ancestral lands. He is now recovering from a major brain surgery at Lawas hospital, after undergoing operation in Kota Kinabalu last month. Many local supporters including PKR chairman Baru Bian had paid visit to the activist to show their concern. We wish his speedy recovery and send warmest regards to his family members. To hear John’s strong voice at the blockade go here. Without his help and warm hospitality Sarawaknews is not possible to get this story to the outside world. John had also spoken about the blocakde as one of the top story to go on air with the commencement of Radio Free Sarawak!
