Manufacturing Consent – VIDEO

“Manufacturing Consent” is a film that features evidence and first-hand testimony of the abuses of PT Borneo Surya Mining Jaya (PT Borneo) in Muara Tae. The company, a subsidiary of First Resources Ltd, bulldozed farmland and forests belonging to the indigenous community of Muara Tae, assisted by the intimidation of armed police brought in to protect the company, while trying to obtain RSPO certification under fake information. The film, released by the London-based Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), lays bare the impact that First Resources’ land-grab is having on the lives of the people of Muara Tae.   EIA’s formal grievance can be read at
