NGOs and human rights groups have roundly condemned the move to kick out indigenous peoples from the Baram dam area.

A joint statement issued by Jaringan Orang Asal SeMalaysia (Joas), Suaram and International Rivers said, “Malaysian and international human rights organizations have united to publicly condemn the attempt to intimidate Indigenous Peoples in Sarawak at the proposed Baram Dam site.

      I am concerned that these institutional reforms (more representation, more members, more reforms, and more beautiful, ethical, peaceful rhetoric) has the effect to instill false beliefs that personal sovereignty and “Rightness” is being nurtured.
      Ending the wars (war on Terror), ending the war funding with the abolishment of fractional reserve banking & central bank private funding, respecting personal sovereignty, removing institutional “Authority” are institutional governance issues not being addressed in the meme of institutional Control and Authority.

However NZ’s Security Council seat gives us grassroots social justice activists a great opportunity to highlight our current government’s racism – for example their refusal to sign the UN Declaration of Rights of Indigenous People.
