This week, the Murum dam began impoundment, starting to fill a 2,750 sq. kilometer reservoir that will displace thousands of peoples and destroy priceless forest. The Penan of the Murum region are once again taking bold action for their rights and for the environment. They are demanding fair compensation and resettlement that will allow them to continue with their traditional way of life. It is time for Sarawak Energy and the government of Sarawak to respect the rights of the people and to stop Murum Dam!
