This video is produced independently by Maruli Sihombing in collaboration with Kolektif Affinitas and The Society Concerned of Mount Kendheng [Jaringan Masyarakat Peduli Pegunungan Kendheng/ JMPPK].
The Video is a documentation of the society’s fight against the plan to
build a cement plant by PT Semen Gresik in Sukolilo Village, Pati
regency, Central Java, Indonesia. Mount Kendheng area is an area known
to contain “gamping”, one of the basic materials of cement. The
majority of people live in the area are farmers and farming workers.
The plan to build this cement plant is feared to threaten the sources
of local people’s living, either polluting water sources or harming the
environment (land, air, and greater potential for natural disaster). At
least there are 144,503 farmers who depend on the 1.430 hectare land
which will be utilized for the construction of the cement plant.
