Protests in Malaysia over indigenous lands

Activists say proposed law will limit Orang Asli people's rights to their ancestral lands.

    Indigenous people in Malaysia are protesting against a proposed law that will limit their rights to ancestral lands.

    If the government passes the amendment, the Orang Asli people would be entitled to 50,000 hectares of land, enough for families to build homes and farm.

    However, activists say that it would not recognise their right for the traditional roaming area, which covers a further 80,000 hectares.
