À Bornéo, des drones cartographiques contre l’accaparement des terres
Quand les cartes sont produites par des consultants privés et par des services de l’État qui privilégient un « développement » agro-industriel aveugle, les victimes sont les villageois qui se voient spoliés de leurs vergers et de leurs terres communes.

À Bornéo, partons à la découverte de deux initiatives de contre-cartographie. Tout d’abord, dans le Kalimantan, la partie indonésienne de l’île de Bornéo, avec Patrick Meier ; en complément, un entretien avec le musicien et militant Jok Jau Evong, au Sarawak (Malaisie), rapporté par Aude Vidal.
