Hari ini team CAN Borneo mengikuti aktifitas kepala adat Kampung Merasa, Kecamatan Kelay, Kabupaten Berau, Kalimantan Timur yaitu Pak Romeo atau sering di panggil pak Meu. Sudah 2 hari ini team CAN Borneo mengikuti aktifitas beliau dalam mempertahankan lahan masyarakat yang gusur oleh perusahaan pertambangan batu bara.
"kita hanya ingin jangan menggusur lahan masyarakat sebelum ada penyelsaian dari kedua belah pihak..." cerita pak Meu ketika bertemu pihak perusahaan dan kepolisian yang mendatangi masyarakat yang lahanya tergusur oleh alat berat. Namun hingga pertemuan berakhir tidak ada kata kesepakatan antara masyarakat dan pihak perusahaan.
