Penan Proclaim Peace Park on Native Land Set for Logging

Date : 29th November 2009, Source : ENS



LONG AJENG, Sarawak, Malaysia, November 29, 2009 (ENS) - They are calling it the Penan Peace Park, but a new rainforest reserve proclaimed by indigenous Penan communities on their native lands in the Malaysian state of Sarawak is likely to be the focus of conflict. With the proclamation of the park on the island of Borneo, 17 Penan communities are challenging the Sarawak state government that has given away these lands to a logging company. The Penan Peace Park area is fully concessioned for logging by the Malaysian timber giant Samling.
