Back in June this year, communities in the Baram region in Sarawak, together with the civil society group Save Rivers, called for the 148,000 hectare Gerenai forest management unit certification to be cancelled, as they believed the certification authority and the timber company involved pushed through the acquirement of the permit during the coronavirus crisis, without proper consultation with objecting communities.

Now, the communities involved and Save Rivers are organising a campaign called “Stop the Chop” to stop the certification of conflict timber in Sarawak. BFM finds out more from Peter Kallang, the chairman of the Save Rivers Network.
