    the Bupati district head void and directly giving the Toras company the concession rights to 24 920 hectares of the Mendalam forest The tribes were furious and protested everywhere but to no avail Some of their people were thrown in jail and they were preparing to go with 500 people to the jail to fee their tribe members The jail wisely released the men before it came to the unwanted visit But their strong stand made it impossible for the Toras company to build a log pond and to start logging The 6000 people of the Mendalam tribes stood firm as one No logging in their ancestral forest where their forefathers are buried where they hunt for their food the forest that protects the fish in their rivers For a while little was heard but then in secret the Toras company started surveying land from a nearby village called Urang Nusa During their second survey they were found out by the female sub village head who brought the team to the newly installed and still inexperienced village head He let them continue under the condition that they would report the results of the survey to him which of course never happened Urang Nusa is a different tribe and they had lived in peace with the Mendalam tribes for centuries Over the last 30 years all of their forest has been repeatedly logged by a variety of companies so that there is no commercial forest left anymore Roni a young person originally from the village of Martinus but now living in Urang Nusa because he married there tells with true emotion in his voice what happened next The Toras company went to some people from the Urang Nusa village and promised that when they would be allowed to cut timber there which there is no more in the Urang Nusa district that they would provide completely free electricity and pay the village 500 Million Rupiah per year Wow what a deal So many of these remote villages long for the day that they too can enjoy light in the evenings and 500 Million is a lot of money for such a remote village Many people were against it but 9 persons had a secret meeting that was overheard by some other villagers Here the internal conflict started between members of the tribe One of the village heads and one part of the village now supported the contract with the Toras timber company It turned out that five of those people were paid over one million Rupiah per month in secret These people tried to influence the rest of the tribe Then the company came back for another socialization of their plans how to help the tribe The way how they manipulated the people was typical They asked the people to sign a blank piece of paper and it was stamped They would fill in the rest Then they came back another time for the final discussion According the law there should be a paragraphed document that needed to be discussed in open by both parties but no such thing took place But the document was only on the screen of a laptop computer And in the Ministerial decree all of a sudden the Kapuas watershed was added by hand to the terrain to be logged In the ensuing confusion people were pressured to just sign the papers that they agreed with the agreement not on the document themselves It turned out that the text was changed There were a lot people commenting in very loud voices and I am not sure if I have every detail right though No longer was there free electricity as promised early on Now every family was given a onetime subsidy of 750 000 Rupiah for bringing in electricity The fine print now also said that they would get 25 000 Rupiah per m3 of timber that Toras would remove from their lands The trick was there was no timber on the land of the village of Urang Nusa So the company would never pay the villagers because they were going to get the timber from the Mendalam land from the tribal land where they had been resolutely refused for years And now just for good practice they had personally and completely illegal added the Kapuas river shed in the area to be logged as well Another area that was off limits They showed an unclear map with coordinates that nobody of the villagers understood They created confusion And no copies of any document were left in the village the company took all with them Then a generator was handed over to the group of people that had done the lobbying and they now unlike the rest of the village have a brightly lit part of the village Now the problems really started The Mendalam tribe heard that the Urang Nusa tribe had given the Toras company rights to log THEIR ancestral lands Now the situation really got dangerous and threats were directed at the village that they felt had betrayed the other tribes In the mean time the company wasted no time and immediately started making a road into the watershed of the Mendalam tribe And they showed a map with the stamps of the Ministry of Forestry that their logging had already been approved Amazing I have been an official of the Ministry of Forestry and they have to have nurseries do tree mapping all those things that have been worked out in detail here they only went in with the machines and started Everything illegal but legal because the stamps are there How much was paid for those stamps How are we ever going to save our forests in Indonesia with such practices From here I could pick up the story from pak Basah He told me that the Mendalam people armed themselves and went into the forest and found the new road already entering their forest They threatened the loggers and they

    his people It is almost time for dinner there is light now I am sweating profusely and will have to go throw some buckets of water over me to somewhat freshen up for the dinner A quick recap of today for surely once we sit at the table the stories and perhaps some more palm wine are to take my time and concentration At three o clock this morning the security at the CICO compound in Bogor knocks on the door At least this night I have had three hours of sleep Yesterday it was only one hour sleep and an additional half hour in the traffic towards the BOS Board of Trustees meeting in the luxurious Meridien Hotel in Jakarta No time for showering too little time and I also do not want to wake up Richard and Simon who will join me to Kalimantan tomorrow a day later for the small airplane can only take 4 5 passengers Dudung arrives and immediately the two of us head for the Jakarta airport Amazing how crowded this airport can be at 5 in the morning We meet up with Pram officially Pramoedya one of my best guys with an orangutan tattooed on his left shoulder He will document our trip and will train more people in the undercover work and do more investigations himself A bit later Hardi the founder and director of COP Center for Orangutan Protection also shows up Last night after the BOS meeting we had another O Team meeting in Bogor and consequently Hardi was very late getting back to Jakarta We have made some good progress and an important meeting with the director general of nature conservation and forest protection is coming up in West Kalimantan soon But that is another story We check in go through the usual cues with pushy people and sit in the Batavia plane Got a half hour of sleep on the short flight of one hour and fifteen minutes In Pontianak pastor Jacques Maessen is waiting for us But there is a problem Last night I got an SMS from Gerhard the German pilot of the missionary company that operates the Cessna s They have an inspection coming up and not enough flying hours left for us Putussibau is twice as far as Sintang That is a ride of almost 20 hours on bad roads The prospect of losing so much time is not good But we walk to the small hangar and weigh ourselves and our luggage Great I lost 7 kilograms Then we have to decide There are four hours of flying left If we go to Sintang first and then on to Putussibau that s it All four hours gone What about Simon Richard and his wife Robin who are coming tomorrow Luck We can get on the twice weekly Trigana flight to Putussibau Some friend of pastor Jacques manages to get us five tickets and we go back to the terminal to catch the flight Now the Cessna can be used tomorrow for the second group and Dudung and Hardi will have to find a way to get from Putussibau to Sintang tomorrow And after our rescue operations we can still be picked up with one group from Sintang Off we go in the small Trigana airplane Loads of oil palms eating into the forest everywhere beneath us when there are gaps in the clouds Putussibau airstrip This airport has a fence We are met by pastor Gun a local Dayak We check into our rooms in the Catholic compound and we get some food Then off to hire a car and start our survey Opposite the shop where we hire a car there are a lot of bird cages hanging in front of the telephone shop A Chinese shop owner talks with me about his hobby and gradually I bring the conversation to orangutans Well a few weeks ago he was offered one Actually already four or five times because people know he likes animals But his wife does not like orangutans because of their children So he just sticks to birds How much Well it varies from 200 000 to 800 000 Rupiah for one baby 22 88 USD A policeman sergeant Eko comes into the shop So I also address him Nice guy ten years here already Orangutans No never seen one with people here Not sure what to think of him now Seems highly unlikely Now the Chinese shopkeeper also starts changing his story We get into the hired four wheel drive vehicle and Dudung steers The steering wheel has considerable free movement and the turning cycle of this Daihatsu even causes difficulties at roundabouts It looked nice when we hired it but the banging with every hole and the swinging movements make it now look like a much less attractive choice Anyway we are looking for the Ministry of Forestry nature conservation office After some effort we find a small dilapidated house with a sign in front suggesting that this might be the place We knock on the door and are welcomed to sit down and wait for pak Roman Silaben a Christian Batak from Sumatra to appear Nice man He talks openly He has been here 8 years Do you like it here Do you want to move Well no money for moving unfortunately the Ministry had cut backs Three children their school guess I will be here for a long time Orangutans No There are only 200 left in the wild around Putussibau according the data from WWF here Aha they have an office here Yes the orange large building along the main road They do education here telling the people not to hunt orangutans And a few weeks ago Ramon evacuated one of the rare orangutans that was confiscated to IAR s Ketapang center The mother had been eaten In his eight years here he has only found 8 orangutans so far The first three were brought
