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.
