Short summary
This article discusses the potential of using drones for community based counter-mapping. Drawing on action research conducted along the Kapuas River in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, we describe how drones were used for political interventions against land grabs by palm oil and mining companies. We argue that self-built drones can be used by local activists in an emancipatory and inclusive way, thereby becoming a weapon of the weak against land and resource grabs.
