Thanks to share this movie. The mud turns out to kill the villagers. Hopefully Government of Indonesia changes its decision on Lapindo.

Unfortunately the government is unlikely to anything without serious pressure being applied. Interestingly in the Jakarta post yesterday there was a prominent spread on cultural protest activities going in relation to lapindo -

Dear Warga Porong, Sidoardjo, victims of Lapindo:

We understand your struggle and we sympathize your pain and suffering.

On behalf of the Future Indonesia Independence Party (FIIP) or Partai Masa Depan Indonesia Mandiri (PARMADIM), we will continue to raise this issue until those victims are being reimbursed for all the damages they have and we will do whatever we can in whatever capacity that we are able to do to demand payments and to hold accountable to those who responsible to this disaster.
