Penan request moratorium on logging to save last remaining islands of primary forest for Upper Baram Park

We, the Penan, are a nomadic tribe living in the rainforest of Sarawak, a Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. Our lives depend very much on a sound environment, a rainforest that can provide us with all for satisfying our needs; our identity and social wellbeing depends very much on our ancestral lands, the territories our fathers and grandfathers lived on. These forests are our history, our present and are meant to be our future.

SUPP uses dirty tactis against Aziz Isa, says Voon Shiak Ni



KUCHING, May 4, 2016: PKR candidate for Batu Kitang, Voon Shiak Ni, today condemned the underhanded tactics used by BN to undermine one of her rivals, young DAP candidate Abdul Aziz Isa.

Voon claimed that SUPP had used Aziz Isa's own family member, a grandmother, to attack  him for his lack of work and life experiences.

"I believe we should be mature politicians and SUPP/BN should not have to resort to gutter politics. Victory must be earned with dignity and clean politics," she said.

"I urge SUPP/BN to refrain from using gutter politics and to promote a healthy mature playing ground," Voon, who is also PKR women national vice head, said.

I may be political novice, but I am not corrupt

By Athina Klaywa Sim,
PKR candidate for Serembu

I am aware that my opponents have used my age against me. I would not be surprised if they continue to denigrate me and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) during this campaign period.  Yes, I am young and yes, I am a novice politician. But they fail to realize though that because I am a novice, I have not been tainted by money politics, dirty tactics or corruption. Because I am young, I will serve the people and fight for their rights with integrity and honesty.
