Macaranga Wrap-up: June 2021

In this month's round-up, we first look at all the news surrounding old and new environmental extractive projects - the Penang South Islands reclamation, the mining projects at Tasik Chini and Som forest, the sand-mining at Setiu Wetlands - what gives? Next up, we look at a massive deforestation project in Bukit Ibam, Pahang, which will displace Orang Asli families, and also the land dispute cases in Sarawak, where Penan and Kenyah groups are alleging that they haven't given free, prior, informed consent to logging projects in Miri and Limbang. Finally, will August see the reconvening of Parliament? We need policy-makers to table and debate responses to not just the Covid pandemic, but also a host of consequent environmental issues. Joining us to discuss this and more are Wong Siew Lyn & Law Yao Hua, Co-Founders, Co-Editors and Writers, Macaranga.org.
