The Mulu Landgrab
More and more tropical rainforests are being destroyed for palm oil plantations. In the Malaysian part of Borneo, deforestation has reached the immediate vicinity of the Mulu National Park, a UNESCO Word Heritage Site.
The film “The Mulu Land Grab” shows the resistance of indigenous Penan and Berawan/Tering communities against the destruction of their forests and the struggle for their land rights. It also shows the palm oil industry’s dodgy connections to international lenders and public officials.
