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. Mais certains résistent, et parmi leurs armes figurent les photos aériennes prises avec des drones qu’ils ont eux-mêmes construits. 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.
