Baru Bian

ELECTION TALK: Ba’Kelalan assemblyman Baru Bian knows very well that he is the prime target of the ruling coalition and will face the Barisan Nasional juggernaut in the coming polls. But he is prepared for them.

“I expect a lot of promises, a lot of money to be poured into my constituency. There will be ‘zinc projects’ here and there,” he said.

Such promises have always been made every time there is an election, and these are their “election gimmicks” to hoodwink the people into voting for the BN candidate, he said.

Chief Minister Adenan Satem has announced a sum of RM29.2 million for the stalled road projects in Ba’Kelalan, and has pledged more projects for Ba’Kelalan.

“I have done my best to serve the people of Ba’Kelalan, and I leave it to them to judge my performance in the past five years,” said Baru, who is also the state chairman of PKR.

Out of 10 issues, he listed religious freedom, native customary rights (NCR) land, GST, basic amenities like schools, water, clinics and roads as well as drug abuse as the top issues that he has been fighting for or against.

“Religious freedom is very important to the people of Ba’Kelalan where nearly 100 percent of them are Christians.

“The next top issue is our NCR land. Even lands surrounding our villages are taken away from us,” he said, adding that he has been fighting throughout his life for NCR land rights.

Baru, who is a specialist in NCR land law, has won a number of NCR land cases.

He cited Adenan’s proposal to convert some 120,000 hectares of land in Ulu Trusan, Lawas as a forest reserve.

When he made the announcement, Adenan did not know that almost all the 120,000 hectares of the land are NCR land belonging to the Lun Bawang.

The Lun Bawang protested through Baru who threatened to sue the government if it proceeded with its proposal.

If the proposal went on, it would leave the Lun Bawang small portions of land for their villages, and it would also deprive them of their hunting, foraging and fishing grounds leaving them with nothing to live on, Baru said.

Realising his grave “mistake”, Adenan announced that the proposal had been suspended.

Even before he took up politics, the 58-year-old Baru has always been a thorn in the flesh of the Barisan Nasional and the authorities.

After graduating as a lawyer in 1986, he went through another “education” in native rights law with environmental groups, including Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) and human rights activists like Harrison Ngau, the ISA detainee, and Bruno Manser, the Swiss anti-logging activist.

He went to Japan several times to meet with other activists of all stripes and delivered speeches at international forums and the International Tropical Timber Organisations (ITTO) council, attacking indiscriminate logging activities in Lawas and Baram areas.

Japan was one of the leading importers of Sarawak timber.

For his anti-logging activities, Baru had been branded a “traitor” by the Barisan Nasional and the authorities.

He confessed that he was almost arrested.

When he contested the Lawas seat in 1991 against Awang Tengah Ali Hassan of PBB, BN effectively used the “traitor” label against him causing him to lose heavily. However, he did not lose his deposit.

His first attempt to contest the Ba’Kelalan seat in a by-election in 2004 and in a state election in 2006 all ended in failure.

But Baru was not deterred by the setbacks.

He won Ba’Kelalan in 2011 against a PBB-nominated candidate by a majority of 473 votes. This time he contested on a PKR ticket.

Since joining PKR after the deregistration of PBDS in 2004, Baru had worked relentlessly in Ba’Kelalan, especially to educate the people on religious freedom, their customary rights in their ancestral lands and the right to development.

His efforts, however, was not only confined to his constituency, but also to at least 40 other constituencies in Sarawak.

Through his efforts and the efforts of other PKR leaders, Sarawakians are slowly waking up from their political slumber.

No wonder, BN feels threatened by Baru’s growing influence.

And this perceived “threat” could have prompted Adenan to invite Baru to join the Barisan Nasional, but later rejected it outright.

For PBB, it has other reasons to bring Baru in, because it has always been its design to take over Ba’Kelalan which is the only state constituency within the Lawas parliamentary constituency that is not under its control.

The other state constituency is Bukit Sari and the incumbent is Awang Tengah, a senior PBB leader and an influential minister.

Baru’s refusal to join PBB was regarded as an “insult” to the chief minister. Partly for this reason, he is considered the “number one enemy” of the BN and must be eliminated.

The state legislative assembly is to be dissolved on April 11 but Adenan has yet to announce the candidate to challenge Baru.

From SPDP sources, it has already identified its deputy president Nelson Balang Rining as its candidate.

However, a certainly personality in PBB rejected Nelson, accusing him of failing in his duty during his two terms as Ba’Kelalan assemblyman.

Instead, the PBB leader suggested that Mutang Tagal be nominated as the BN candidate, but the problem is that the former MP has been out of politics and is not a SPDP member.

Several other names have also been mentioned as possible candidates for Ba’Kelalan.

 Could the last minute decision to select the candidate be an advantage to Baru? Let’s wait and see.

LAWAS:Terlalu sesak, itulah ungkapan terbaik bagi menggambarkan jumlah calon yang berminat untuk bertanding atas tiket Barisan Nasional (BN)  bagi kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Ba Kelalan ini.

Mutang Tagal._0000
Mutang Tagal

Beberapa individu dikatakan berminat untuk mewakili BN di kawasan itu, termasuk bekas Ahli Dewan Undangan Negerinya. Datuk Nelson Balang Rining, Timbalan presiden SPDP, merupakan antara nama yang berminat, selain mantan Ahli Parlimen tahun 80-an, Mutang Tagal.

Nelson memenangi  kerusi itu dua kali, termasuk dalam pilihan raya kecil, sebelum digugurkan dalam pilihan raya lalu.

Dua lagi nama yang disenaraikan SPDP ialah Barry Baru Sigar dan Sam Laya, setiausaha dan penolong setiausaha  bahagian SPDP, masing-masingnya.

Kerusi ini dianggap hitam bukan sahaja kerana ditawan Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), tetapi juga disebabkan pertelagahan dalam kalangan parti komponen.

Kerusi majoriti Orang Ulu itu daripada kaum Lun Bawang dan Kelabit itu dimenangi oleh pengerusi PKR Negeri, Baru Bian dengan majoriti 473 undi apabila beliau  menewaskan Willie Liau daripada SPDP dalam pilihan raya 2011.  Kawasan itu mempunyai sekitar 7,000 pengundi.

Bagi merungkaikan isu pertelagahan calon Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Tan Sri Adenan Satem dijangka tiada pilihan melainkan terpaksa menampilkan calon langsung BN bagi memastikan kemenangan. Namun, jika berlaku sabotaj-mensabotaj, hal ini akan menguntungkan pihak lawan.

Justeru, calon langsung dipilih itu dikatakan seorang yang benar-benar mempunyai kewibawaan dan disegani pengundi di kawasan pedalaman itu. Calon berkenaan tidak semestinya muda, sebaliknya seorang yang dikatakan mempunyai sokongan akar umbi yang kuat.

Ketika SarawakVoice berkunjung ke sini baru-baru ini, antara isu dibangkitkan pengundi ialah keadaan jalan raya, bekalan air bersih, pembinaan sekolah menengah, hospital dan bekalan elektrik, ketiadaan sekolah menengah di Long Semadoh, klinik, masalah penyeludupan di sempadan,  kemudahan telekomunikasi, wifi, dan isu tanah NCR.

 

Berdasarkan pemerhatian  wakil SarawakVoice, penyeludupan semakin menjadi-jadi di sempadan Ba Kelalan dan Krayan Kalimantan.

Menurut  penduduk tempatan, lebih kurang 10,000 liter diesel dan 50 tong gas memasak dan barangan subsidi lain diseludup setiap hari ke sempadan Kalimantan sehingga menjejaskan ekonomi peniaga kecil di Ba Kelalan.

Sekitar 40  buah pacuan empat roda melalui sempadan ini dengan membawa diesel dan barangan lain dengan terang- terangan.

“Perkara ini telah dilaporkan di akhbar dan YB tetapi tidak ada tindakan yang diambil,” kata seorang penduduk.

Kini sempadan tersebut dikendalikan oleh imigresen dan askar tanpa pihak kastam.
Para penduduk mendakwa berpuluh-puluh buah kereta mewah yang dicuri dari Sabah dan Sarawak, dibawa masuk ke Krayan Kalimantan.

“Polis dan Tentera Indonesia tidak mahu bekerjasama untuk membanteras isu kecurian kereta. Tidak hairanlan, kebanyakan kereta di daerah tersebut tidak mempunyai nombor pendaftaran. Penyeludupan dadah pun berlaku di sini dan mungkin juga pemerdagangan manusia,” tambah seorang daripada penduduk, yang enggan dikenali.

Untuk itu, penduduk mencadangakan agar CIQ dibina di sempadan Ba Kelalan Kalimantan untuk membanteras penyeludupan barangan subsidi, kecurian kereta dan dadah. Dipercayai ia akan memulihkan kembali ekonomi peiaga di Ba Kelalan.

Selain itu, isu ketiadaan kad pengenalan juga menjadi masalah bagi lebih kurang seribu penduduk Ba Kelalan. Ini disebabkan masalah perhubungan  jalan raya  yang tiada sebelum ini.

“Kerana tidak ada kad pengenalan maka mereka tidak dapat mendaftar sebagai pengundi. Untuk menyelesaikan masalah yang bertahun-tahun ditanggung, mungkin Putrajaya dapat membantu; jika tidak mereka ini umpama pendatang haram di negara sendiri,” katanya.

Pengundi di beberapa kampung mendakwa ada janji yang belum dikotakan oleh kerajaan.

Mereka mahu wakil rakyat yang dapat membawa pembangunan ke kawasan terbabit.

Pertengahan Februari lalu,  Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar Kedua, Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan  menasihati mereka yang tidak dipilih sebagai calon agar tidak merajuk.

“Sesiapa pun dipilih mewakili BN di kawasan Ba’Kelalan, kita semua perlu menyokong.

“Jika tidak dipilih jangan merajuk dan jangan membawa kumpulan lain menentang kerajaan,” katanya dalam satu majlis di sini.

“Kita harus memastikan siapa dipilih perlu disokong dan bersatu kerana kita mahu Ba’Kelalan kembali kepada BN sekali gus memastikan kaum Lun Bawang maju bersama BN,” tambahnya.

Awang Tengah berkata  kerajaan  ingin memastikan penduduk di Ba’Kelalan  dibawa ke dalam arus perdana pembangunan dan  semua itu hanya dapat dilaksanakan kalau mereka menyokong BN.

Namun, para pengundi sedar jika berlaku pertembungan sesama sendiri dan tidak terdapat kompromi, kemungkinan besar calon PKR akan mendapat manfaat.

Dijangka Baru Bian akan mempertahankan kerusi itu dalam pilihan raya nanti. – SARAWAKVOICE.COM

Lun Bawang perlu berani, Lun Bawang perlu berubah untuk melakukan anjakan paradigma daripada jaguh kampung kepada juara dunia dan meningkatkan diri daripada Lun Bawang cermalang kepada Lun Bawang terunggul. Lun Bawang  juga  perlu berubah  daripada  kurang berani menjadi  Lun Bawang  yang berani  berjuang menjadi jaguh dunia. Walau pun kedudukan  orang Lun Bawang  pada masa ini boleh  di banggakan ,  tetapi tahap kejayaan itu tidak mencukupi dan memadai untuk menghadapi  lebih banyak lagi cabaran di hari muka.

Melakukan mobiliti  social  daripada masyarakat  yang  suatu masa dahulu daif dan miskin. Kini  menjadi usahawan  dan cendakiawan  kerana  kejayaan sistem pendidikan , namun kini Lun Bawang berdepan  pula dengan  dengan cabaran  globalisasi dan perlumbaan mengejar  ilmu  menjadi semakin  kritikal.  Kalau dulu mereka yang mendapat keputusan baik delam Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM)  sudah di anggap hebat, tetapi kini mereka yang mendapat iiazah  belum tentu berpeluang mendapat pekerjaan yang baik. Lihatlah berapa jauhnya perubahan  dulu dan sekarang. Tugas kita Lun Bawang  semakin berat  dan pastinya  Kerajaan  tidak dapat  menyediakan  segala-galanya untuk membantu Lun Bawang mencapai hasrat itu. Anjakan paradigma  hanya mampu dilakukan jika Lun Bawang  menjadi insan unggul dan bersungguh-sungguh mengejar ilmu  dan kemahiran. Oleh itu genarasi muda  belajarlah bersungguh sungguh  serta berpegang  kepada pepatah orang Malayu “ Bercita-cita  setinggi langit  kerana  tidak dapat mencapai langit,  paling  kurang  dapat mengapai awan. Justru kerajaan sedar bahawa  pendidikan  menjadi  wahana penting  kepada proses  mobility social dan pentingnya bidang pendidikan, bukan  sahaja  untuk  mendidik,  tetapi juga untuk melahirkan masyarakat yang holistic, berakhlak, beriman dan  mempunyai  kemahiran supaya merika  menjadi insan yang sempurna.

              Kejayaan  Lun Bawang  telah  membuktikan  bahawa pendidikan  mampu menjadi instromen  penting  mengimbangi  strata social yang paling berkesan, selain Ibu bapa ,guru dan pelajar, badan bukan kerajaan (NGO), Korprat dan masyrakat  perlu bergadingbahu menjayakan matlamat itu. Merikalah golongan  yang bertanggungjawab  menentukan kemajuan  masyarakat delam  bidang pendidikan . Demikian  intipati ucapan saya  untuk sebagai dorongan  kepada kita suku jaum Lun Bawang.

Alan Beltcher (Pendeta Meripa) dan Madge Hill (Pendeta Ganit)

Alan Beltcher (Pendeta Meripa) dan Madge Hill (Pendeta Ganit)

“Anun bala?“(“How are you“), I greeted him in my dialect when he answered the phone. “Mengered!”(“Very old indeed!“), he replied in Lun Bawang, his second language he spoke and wrote fluently . It was followed by a familiar hearty and contagious laughter. He made my day! From a hotel in the city of Melbourne, I was communicating with him in a language foreign to his native country. He was living in a simple and cosy single storey house in the suburb town of Benella with his wife, Supang (June). I was back in Melbourne in March 2006 during The Commonwealth Game. He was 92 years old then.

On 4th September 2012, he was called to be with His Lord. He was 98 years old.

In the mid-1930s, Mr. Alan Francis Belcher, in the prime of his life, left his job and country, Australia. His purpose and destination – to be a missionary in a far distant heathen land, Borneo! Sarawak was then ruled by the Third and last White Rajah, Charles Vyner Brooke.

He pioneered many missionary works among the natives of Sabah and Sarawak and led hundreds to the saving grace of Christ. Most of his missionary life was spent in Mission Lawas, the BEM/SIB Bible School.

Alan Beltcher (Pendeta Meripa) dan Madge Hill (Pendeta Ganit)

Alan Beltcher (Pendeta Meripa) dan Madge Hill (Pendeta Ganit)

It was in the mid-60s, when he and his first wife, Pendita Ganit (Madge (dec)), a fellow missionary, moved to stay in Long Semadoh, my village in the highlands. Then a 3 to 4 days’ walk from the nearest town, Lawas. Their abode was a small wooden hut built on wooden stilts by the river next to the padi fields. From that little hut and after some 10 years or so of hard work, the whole books of the Old Testament were translated into the Lun Bawang language. They were blessed with the tranquility of their cool and unspoilt enviornment. The village folks, then really simple, innocent, pure, caring and gracious, welcomed them with open arms. Almost immediately they became part of our community in nearly every sense of the word.

My memories of him and Pendita Ganit in Long Semadoh as a child and teenager are sweet and plentiful. One that comes to mind is when the first man landed on the moon on 20th July 1969. He heard the news on his transistor radio, a Philip brand I believe. He conveyed that information to the mostly unschooled villagers. That night we gathered around him taking turn to try to catch a glimpse of Neil Armstrong through his telescope and binoculars.

Another common scene was his daily early morning walk from their hut with Pendita Ganit and their dog, Buki, to attend the 6 am daily morning church service.

Apart from dong his translation work, he was also to the village folks an older version of “McGyver”. His store was never empty and the folks treated him as their ultimate Mr. Fix It.

When the brutal Japanese Army landed and captured Sarawak in 1941, he had his share of thorns in the flesh. 8 of the BEM missionaries, including Alan, were imprisoned and interned with the other white men at Batu Lintang Concentration Camp, Kuching from October 1942 to September 1945. One of the missionaries died while being interned. Alan chose not to hate his captors. After all, he travelled the sea to spread the Good news of peace and salvation. He continued and gave all his life to serve the Lord after his release.

It was during his tenure as the Chairman of BEM that SIB was formed.

As a missionary, he traveled to the northern interior of Sarawak and the interior of Sabah. That was a dramatic feat those days considering the lack of road and communication and everything.

To my humble mind, he was a missionary par excellence, a man with long foresight and many talents. He was a man of simple but great faith. Above all, his preoccupation was with the God who seek him and found him. During my last visit to Alan in Benalla in March 2006, he prayed for me. These humble words were uttered to heaven: “O Tuhan, Na kai nakap Nemu. Iko Nakap nakai. ..“(“O Lord, we did not seek You. You seek us..”). I heard that prayer by him on countless occasions. I cannot thank God enough for that wonderful realization of God’s hot pursuit after His children. I felt truly blessed to know Alan as a friend.

Looking back, I feel that It was no coincidence that God, in His infinite grace and mercy, paved the way for my unforgettable journey to Alan’s country in 1983. Not as a missionary, though. Melbourne, where I studied, was the birthplace of BEM.

He told me once of his admiration for my village. He described it as one of the most beautiful place in Sarawak. I believed he said that as he felt really at home there.

To the village folks, Alan is affectionately called Pendita Meripa, a Lun Bawang name. A fitting tribute to a man who inspired the villagers spiritually.

After being a missionary in Borneo for nearly 6 decades, he went back to his native country in 1984. But we all knew that his heart never really left the village. He left for us an eternal legacy – the love of God for mankind and His redemption power.

In celebrating his life with us, allow me to reproduce the translated words from Psalm 23 in the Old Testament:-

Nani Lun Luk Matar Dumba

Tuhan ineh Lun Matar negku,

Idi na ui pian ku luk baken.

Ieh ngato erurku dei bang laman luk

Bagaimana Sabah dan Sarawak menjadi sebahagian daripada Malaysia?

Untuk memahami bagaimana Sabah dan Sarawak menjadi sebahagian daripada Malaysia pada 1963, adalah penting untuk mengetahui sejarahnya. Sarawak diperintah oleh dinasti Rajah Sir James Brooke selama lebih 100 tahun manakala Sabah diperintah oleh Sultan Sulu dan Syarikat Berpiagam Borneo Utara British sebelum kedua-dua negeri tersebut menjadi koloni Empayar British selepas Perang Dunia Kedua.

Apabila Persekutuan Tanah Melayu mencapai kemerdekaan pada tahun 1957, penduduk Sabah dan Sarawak mula berbincang tentang kemerdekaan Negeri-negeri mereka. Persoalan tentang Sabah dan Sarawak membentuk persekutuan dengan negara lain menjurus kepada penubuhan Suruhanjaya yang diketuai oleh Lord Cobbold untuk mendapat tahu kehendak penduduk Sabah dan Sarawak.

Setelah bercakap dengan pelbagai pihak, Suruhanjaya tersebut melaporkan bahawa majoriti penduduk Sabah dan Sarawak akan bersetuju untuk membentuk persekutuan dengan Tanah Melayu jika terdapat perlindungan istimewa untuk memelihara kepentingan mereka. Sebuah Jawatankuasa Antara Kerajaan telah dibentuk yang terdiri daripada Kerajaan Tanah Melayu, Kerajaan British, Sabah dan Sarawak untuk merangka perlindungan istimewa untuk Sabah dan Sarawak.

Pada Julai 1963, “Perjanjian Malaysia” ditandatangani di London di antara Kerajaan-kerajaan British dan Tanah Melayu, Sarawak, Sabah dan pihak-pihak lain (termasuk Singapore) untuk membentuk Malaysia, dan perjanjian tersebut termasuk kepentingan dan perlindungan istimewa untuk Sabah dan Sarawak yang disyorkan oleh Jawatankuasa Antara Kerajaan.

Parlimen Tanah Melayu kemudian membuat perubahan kepada Perlembagaan tahun 1957 untuk menjadikannya Perlembagaan Persekutuan untuk Malaysia, dan perlindungan istimewa untuk Sabah dan Sarawak dimasukkan ke dalam Perlembagaan.

Pada 16 September 1963, lahirlah Malaysia.

‎”Pada 16 September 1963, Sabah dan Sarawak mengumumkan untuk bergabung dengan Semenanjung Tanah Malaya, membentuk Malaysia. 48 tahun kemudian, meskipun memiliki sumber semulajadi yang lumayan, namun Sabah dan Sarawak tetap ketinggalan secara perbandingan, dari segi pembangunan sosial ekonomi, pendidikan, infrastruktur dan sebagainya.”

Untuk 10 tahun ini, Sabah adalah negeri yang termiskin. Dari segi pendidikan, 21% daripada penduduk Sabah tidak berpendidikan. Apa masa depan anak-anak ini? Mengapa pula jurang kemiskinan antara desa dan bandar di Sabah begitu ketara? Sempena kita menyambut Hari Malaysia, marilah kita merenung masalah ini.”
