Blockading Baram dam (video)

The government of Sarawak, one of two Malaysian states in Borneo, plans to build a string of hydroelectric dams and industrialise with the power. But the next of the planned dams, on the Baram River, threatens the land and homes of 20,000 indigenous people. A group of local activists have been blockading the proposed dam site for two years, and in October 2015 marked the anniversary with an international event – the World Indigenous Summit on Environment and Rivers.
