The Facts about Sarawak!

PUBLIC INTEREST HAS BEEN AROUSED BY the hurried transformation of the independent State of Sarawak into a Crown Colony. It is believed that a study of the relevant facts will convince the reader that the means taken to secure cession of the State were irregular and improper; that, contrary to the declaration of the Atlantic Charter, the wishes of the indigenous peoples of Sarawak were disregarded and over-ruled; and that the claim made on behalf of those peoples by the Malay Union of Sarawak and the Dayak Association for the restoration of their independence and of their ancient Raj is just and should be conceded. This document sets out, without argument, the salient facts on which anyone interested in the problem and in the international reputation of Great Britain can base a judgement.
