Miri, Sarawak – Around 30 indigenous peoples’ leaders from different countries all over Asia traveled to the blockade site at Kilometer 15 to support the people’s opposition to the construction of the Baram Dam. The indigenous leaders, representing the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP), joined the Baram people in their call to stop all plans to build the Baram dam because it would displace some 20,000 indigenous peoples from 26 villages and destroy their land, life and resources that they depend on for their survival.
