INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF MALAYSIA NEEDS YOUR HELP
As Malaysia is still undergoing MCO, we see more news of Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia and the Indigenous people of Sarawak and Sabah losing their homes due to projects related to deforestation, logging, development and the like.
So, I decided to highlight a few organization/movement that would appreciate your swift support:
1. SAVE POS LANAI — a coalition pushing for the government to STOP the rare earth mining project that would not only harm our environment but also be stealing Orang Asli’s land. The forests and rivers of Pos Lanai are a life source for the Semai Orang Asli community, but over the years the forests and rivers have been repeatedly abused by agricultural activities in Cameron Highlands, Pahang. Now, the Semai Orang Asli are headed into a legal battle with the Pahang State Government. They are fighting for gazettement of their forests and home so that they have permanent protection.

2. Kampung Berengoi vs The YP Olio Sdn Bhd Plantation Project — When the Orang Asli of Kampung Berengoi in Malaysia signed a contract to receive new homes, what the illiterate villagers didn’t realise they were consenting to was a major logging project that would see hectares of forest on land they claim as indigenous chopped down. If the villagers were able to read the letter, they would have seen it stated that they “have no objection to development project on YP Olio’s land”, the nature of which was left unspecified. This showed how the Pahang government took advantage of the community’s illiteracy. Concerned groups are criticising the project for destroying habitats of endangered wildlife and displacing indigenous people. At least eight Orang Asli families, including Omar's, live in two villages on the site.
Pahang Deforestation Adds to Decades of Indigenous Land Rights Struggle in Malaysia
How did Orang Asli who have been protesting a plantation project in Pahang end up signing consent letters? (includes a voice recording of one of the people affected, Omar Rani, answering questions on his consent letter for the logging project)
. . .
3. Penang fishermen and marine biodiversity vs Penang South Reclamation project (PSR) — PSR is a massive reclamation project to create three islands off the southern coast of Penang island. This project would threaten a nesting ground of vulnerable Olive Ridley turtles and a marine biodiversity hotspot. This marine biodiversity hotspot would be destroyed by the PSR project to create three artificial islands for the development of condominiums. The project would also endanger the livelihoods of fishermen who have been fishing sustainably for generations. The project is expected to generate 3.2 million tons of carbon emissions annually.

Together We Heal.
A piece about Malaysia losing its national icon, and the need for all of us to save the Malayan Tiger. There are only 250 to 340 tigers left in the wild, and they are in a losing battle against poachers and habitat loss. Most of us have Facebook friends beyond that number. Unbeknownst to most of us, the Sumatran Rhinos have already gone extinct due to poaching RIGHT UNDER OUR NOSES, IN MALAYSIA’S NATIONAL PARK! The tiger is the most endangered of the big cats, and 4 out of 9 subspecies has already gone extinct. Malayan tigers are the most likely 5th candidate to say goodbye.
“Do we want to be known as the generation who lost the Malayan tiger and everything it represents?” ——————
This piece was done for a competition relating to love, unity and respect, to vote for my piece, the link is in my stories. Thankyou for taking your time to read this.
