The Bamboo Blockade

Published on 27 Oct 2016 4:35:03 PM

More than 200 Orang Asli men, women and children have camped at a logging blockade deep in the jungles of northeast Peninsula Malaysia's Kelantan, in an effort to stop logging in their ancestral homeland once and for all.

Starting in late September 2016, they have halted both loggers and the state government of Kelantan from coming in past their blockade, and are demanding an end to the environmental destruction in the Balah Forest Reserve.
