针对砂拉越州首席部长阿德南宣布“搁置巴南水坝建设”的口头承诺和砂拉越人民反对巨型水坝建设的维权斗争,国内24个民间组织今日(11月10日)联合发表声明,全文如下——

适逢巴南人民设置路障2周年,我们,下述联署的公民社会组织,强烈要求砂拉越政府正视巴南区原住民反对建造巴南水坝的决心,即刻白纸黑字中止巴南水坝计划,停止侵占原住民土地,保障他们的传统习俗土地权(Native Customary Land)。

尽管砂拉越首长阿德南已做出口头上承诺指已指示停止建设水坝工程的工作,但对于峇南人而言,砂州政府一天未以白纸黑字的形式宣布停止峇南水坝计划,峇南人仍会继续反水坝运动,抗争到底。

我们重申,巴南水坝的建造计划从未咨询当地居民的意见,违反了联合国原住民权利宣言所阐明的“自由、事先、知情及同意”(Free, Prior, Inform and Consent)的发展原则。此巨型水坝计划将迫使二万名原住民迁离世代居住的土地,消灭原住民村落几百年传下来的有形与无形文化,也将淹没如新加坡面积大的土地,对环境生态的破坏影响深远。砂拉越政府必须悬崖勒马,不仅应该停建巴南水坝,也应该一并撤销砂拉越再生能源走廊计划(SCORE)之下建议的十二座巨型水坝。

峇南人在过去两年内全天候驻守于两个反水坝营地,分别是Long Lama和KM15,以确保砂拉越能源局(Sarawak Energy Berhad)无法伺机进入水坝工地施工。其中KM15营地在去年杪的3个月内与砂源局对峙14次,将已进入工地准备施工的队伍驱赶之际,也把所有的机器移走,并在进入工地的主要路段挖一个大洞,以致没有人可踏入工地范围。

我们呼吁砂拉越政府聆听民意,了解砂拉越内陆居民所要的“发展”为何物。内陆居民拒绝出卖祖传地和河流,剥夺他们赖以生存的森林与河流资源。他们要求的是永续的发展,在保留环境生态与文化生活的基础上,提供基本社区设施以允许他们参与民主生活。因此,砂州政府必须立即中止在巴南乡区的大型水坝发电计划,代之以居民所亟需的基本设施(如道路、学校和医院等)的建设,以及电流和清水的供应。


Joint Statement of 24 NGOs on 10 November 2015
Demand A Written Guarantee to Stop Baram Dam Development Project

Coinciding with the second anniversary of Baram blockade, We, the civil society groups signing this statement, strongly demand the state government of Sarawak to immediately stop the Baram Dam development project with written guarantee and to stop encroaching the Native Customary Land.

Although Chief Minister Adenan has verbally instructed the suspension of this project, people of Baram would continue their resistance movement until the final written guarantee is presented by the state government.

We would like to reiterate, that, the local villagers have never been consulted prior to commencement of the dam project. It indicates a violation by the state government of the development principles of “Free, Prior, Inform and Consent” stated in United Nations Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This mega dam project would force twenty thousand indigenous people to relocate, and annihilate heritages and cultures. An area as large as Singapore would be flooded, posing a long-term environmental destruction. Not only should the state government halts the Baram dam project, all 12 mega dam projects proposed under the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) should also be canceled.

Baram people have been stationing at the two camps, namely Long Lama and KM15 in the past two years to prevent staff and contractors of Sarawk Energy Berhad (SEB) from going into the project construction site. Last year at KM 15, fourteen confrontations with SEB occurred in three months, during which SEB personnel were expelled and machines were moved away. A huge hole was also dug at the main road heading to the construction site.

The state government must recognize the perceived meaning of “development” by indigenous villagers. They would never accept any forms of exploitation of natural resources, let alone their ancestral land and rivers. They demand a sustainable development – provision of basic infrastructures and democratic life without sacrificing environmental ecology and culture. Therefore mega dam project at rural Baram should be replaced by construction of amenities (roads, schools and hospitals), as well as supplying electricity and clean water.
