Arrest Me Too? Amazing Bravery Of One Small Child!
Hours after the armed arrest of 8 of his relatives, including two young teenage boys, the people of Sarawak will be stunned at the amazing bravery of one young Penan boy at the Murum Dam blockade.
He is very young. Maybe only about six years old.
But, in him a star and a future leader is surely born and the elderly kleptocrat Taib Mahmud and his court jester, the Norwegian dam builder, Torstein Sjotveit, should take notice of this powerful little voice.
Filmed on a shaky camera in the murkey darkness of his campsite by the side of the road, the displaced youngster speaks straight to the camera. Straight to Taib Mahmud, the “swindler” who has taken his land and his heritage and destroyed a unique place on our planet.
Surrounding him are fellow campsite children, in awe of his bravery, and also adults, whose passions and views he articulates with simple eloquence. Did ‘foreign NGOs instigate’ this, Abdul Taib Mahmud?
