On the eve of the anniversary of the Baram Dam blockade, 50 police personnel, 10 Forestry Officers and a handful of loggers dismantled the barricade at KM15 in Long Keseh. Blockaders demanded a 3 day cooling off period and a meeting with officials on the 24th October. We speak to Dominic, a blockader from the area who urges sympathisers to head down to the blockade site before the 24th October for support.

And BRIMAS Director Mark Bujang comments on the company that is involved in the logging on native customary rights (NCR) land. Mark says the company is attempting to log illegally as they have yet to conduct an environmental impact assessment (EIA) study of the area.

Finally, Nicholas Bawin has been appointed by the villagers of Long Tuyut to witness their NCR case against Boustead Pelita. Bawin shares his views!
