Discriminatory BR1M 16/02/2012

Thursday 16 February, 2012

On our show today, why can’t disabled hard-core poor citizens receive RM500 assistance? Give some thoughts when you hear the sad account of a visually impaired listener who managed to dial to reach us.

And, yet more on Taib’s increasing land grabs cases in Sarawak – more than one case per day!  Just last week, eight cases were filed by state PKR chief Baru Bian’s legal firm, known for defending native land rights.

Also, we talk to a land owner from Lubok Antu who filed a case in the Kuching High Court this week to claim NCR over 7,000 hectares of land belonging to 13 longhouses. This is their last resort to safeguard their ancestral lands encroached by logging companies more than 10 years ago.

Even, villagers from a state assemblyman’s long house are not spared from land grabs. Join us as we question how long these villagers can continue their once loyal support for their elected representative!

Again, more on BN’s lies – promised projects followed by earth-breaking ceremony in Serian but was abandoned right after state election!

Also, our presenters bring you updates on Marudi land case, comments, new updates and music.
