  1. I had travelled extensively throughout Ulu Baram for the past 20 years…in the height of the Penan campaign against the logging companies…..when the PPF fired tears gas into Penan blockade in Selaan….with small children sleeping in their huts!

    Back then you can find abundances of all varieties of fishes to fish and animals to hunt….now all gone!

    As said…..we can’t eat the road….cant drink the mud! So what sustainable development did these logging companies brought to us?

  2. Yes. Sorry to say, but we can’t eat roads.

    In town areas where roads got jam, roti pun not so banyak as before.
