Logging in Baram - Beneficial to Who, Exactly?

Logging in Baram - Beneficial to Who, Exactly?

Earlier in March, Sarawak assemblyman Dennis Ngau claimed that logging in Ulu Baram, Miri, was welcomed by indigenous communities, and did not harm their way of life. This was swiftly refuted by indigenous land rights defenders, including Save Rivers and Keruan, who criticised the assemblyman's comments, saying that it demonstrated a real lack of understanding of the issues and needs on the ground. We speak to Celine Lim, the Managing Director of Save Rivers for a clearer picture of the situation on the ground, and whether indigenous communities have benefited from logging, as claimed by the authorities.
