SUARAM's People Before Profit (PBP)

SUARAM's "People Before Profit" Desk began as an effort to focus and coordinate the struggles of  Malaysians against profit-driven projects. Monitoring and documentation by SUARAM showcase a concerning pattern indicating that various State and Non-State actors are complicit in numerous violations of human rights under the guise of development in Malaysia. The situation on the ground has not changed much, deforestation of indigenous peoples' land is still happening. 


Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) Support Group for Kg Kelaik
On March 10th, 2021, three residents from Kampung Kelaik filed a summons against ten companies and four state government agencies of Kelantan. Since then, a few concerned organisations* have assisted them in amplifying their case.

Due to prolonged legal proceedings, in November 2023, a group of CSOs agreed to establish a Support Group for Kampung Kelaik Temiar Rights. This support group is an effort to show solidarity with the indigenous community in Kampung Kelaik and help them raise funds for their fight. The fundraising efforts will cover their legal fees, logistics during court trial days in the High Court of Kota Bharu, Kelantan, and assessments on the soil, water, and rock due to encroachment activities.
