The clan jetties are at the sea front of Georgetown, Penang. More than 2000 ex-port workers whose contribution towards the establishment of the Penang port and the Georgetown city has largely been forgotten. They live in an endangered heritage area with their land lease having to be renewed every year. After waiting for more than over a century, the application for World Heritage City status for Georgetown hold up a hope for getting their right to land recognized.
