Thousands of people in the wilderness of Malaysian Borneo are set to lose their homes, as a controversial plan to build a string of huge hydro dams gets under way.

In the state of Sarawak, the Bakun Dam has already flooded an area the size of Singapore, displacing indigenous communities, some of whom say they’ve never received the full compensation they were promised.

These projects will destroy Sarawak’s remaining great rivers and jungles.

We must stop this destruction!

      I am Sarawakian, our forests have already been decimated. Thousands are already displaced, and thousands more are being forced from their lands without adequate compensation. 12 Dams will kill the soul of this already damaged state.

      My mothers Tasmanian. I have grown up knowing the beauty of Tasmania. A Tasmanian company that claims to care about the environment, would not care to take part in this.

      This is important because the rich politicians and businessmen, often from other places and countries, are once again raping the land, the people and the livelihoods of indigenous people in a country that doesn't sufficiently protect the rights of people groups who have occupied the land for thousands of years. This is tantamount to genocide. Where is their voice heard?

      Because i grew up there. Enjoyed the natural deep jungle and waterfalls during school scouts, we were the best in the world. Permanently destroy potential land for native or local agriculture. Permanently destroys potential development for future tourism attraction. Permanently destroys landscape for potential Eco sustainable development. Stop monopolization and Government corruption. I want a high tech glassy green rain forest Borneo. Not roofs covering treetops but tree tops covering roof tops. aA whole island as a open zoo preserving all the rarest species, animals and plants in the world. Proper regulations or motivated lifestyle to live green smart on a green island.
