The Sarawak Report founding editor facing harassment


"Clare Rewcastle Brown is an exemplar of fearless journalism. Brought up in Malaysia, she has campaigned for the rights of indigenous people in Sarawak against corrupt governments at state and national level. Not least she is a global voice against the ongoing destruction of Sarawak's rainforests by logging companies and its rivers by dam-building outfits aided an abetted by Western agencies - not least the secretive Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation.

Clare came to Tasmania a couple of years back and at a massive Press Conference which I hosted as a Greens senator, talked about corruption in Malaysia and the role of Ta Ann, now in the logging business in Tasmania, in wrecking Sarawakian rainforests: the Tasmanian media gave her no coverage!!!"
