An article that explains the failures of resettlement from Hornbill Unleashed:
“Bakun dam ready, but pledges to natives unfulfilled”
Good to see more of this type of documentary or Art being made and able to be seen via the net. Pity it will make little difference now, as the Status Qua still functions in the mod of business as usual. Even if things could be changed in one generation through the education system it may be too late. After all we need to, still put back education in the education system.
