Stand in Solidarity With The Indigenous Community Re-Claiming Native Land

    1. Petition by

      Rainforest Action Network

After fighting for the return of their ancestral lands for more than a decade, the people of Long Teran Kenan in Malaysian Borneo decided to take back their traditional lands. Their territory had been taken from them and converted to palm plantations that are now owned by the notorious global palm oil giant IOI Group.

Members of the Long Teran community drew a line in the sand when they occupied two palm oil plots that IOI Group had continued to harvest despite a historic decision by the Malaysian court, which ruled in March 2010 that the palm oil plots in question were indeed on native customary lands.

Please join us in calling on IOI Group to respect native customary rights and the basic needs of the community of Long Teran Kenan.

      Since I did not wish to live on a land taken from indigenous people, I returned from Australia to my country of origin in 1992 and encourage others to do the same. I avoid tropical timber and have written to Croatian building companies and building material stores asking them to avoid it. The same applies to palm oil - I write to companies asking them to avoid it. It is unacceptable that many cruelty-free, vegan, organic and "eco" products contain palm oil.
