A large group of Penan Peoples have reinstated a blockadeagainst the controversial Murum dam in the Malaysian state of Sarawak.

The blockade originally began in September 2012, when the Penan and Kenyah heard that they would be forced off their lands without fair compensation to make way for the dam’s reservoir.
