Penan: Murum Dam Blockade 2012
A video on Penans protest against the construction of Murum Hydroelectric Dam Project. This was recorded on digital camera by the Penans themselve during the visit of the Belaga District Officer, Mr Halim Abdullah on 27 September 2012. He advised the Penans to dismantle the blockade but strongly rejected by the Penans. He promised to bring forward the Penans problems to the higher government authority. Mr Halim said, "if you want to do blockade, that's your right".
The Penans call on the Chief Minister of Sarawak, Abdul Taib Mahmud to visit them at the blockade site in order to resolve the issues and problems affecting them with regard to the Murum dam project.
