The Orang Asli of Gua Musang intend to rebuild their anti-logging blockades at the Balah Forest Reserve this weekend, less than a fortnight after its destruction by the state Forestry Department on Nov 29, which also saw more than 50 of them arrested.

The Temiar community have started collecting materials such as bamboo, wood and rattan to set up barriers on the logging trail, Jaringan Kampung Orang Asli Kelantan (JKOAK) chairperson Azmi Badun said.
