Take action for indigenous rights in Sarawak

Tens of thousands of indigenous people from Sarawak, Malaysia, are threatened with forced displacement as the Sarawak government moves ahead with plans for 12 massive new dams. These dams will devastate the traditional homelands of native communities, drown pristine tropical habitat, and generate dangerous methane gas, a dangerous climate polluter.

The SAVE-Rivers movement has launched a petition demanding that decision makers stop construction of these destructive dams and instead respect indigenous rights and find alternatives that reduce social and environmental impacts while still meeting Sarawak’s energy needs.

You are invited to sign the petition at http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/stop-the-
