[ACTION ALERT] With their feet buried in cement, Kendeng Farmers appeal to President

Thursday, 23rd March 2017

The Kendeng farmers call on the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, to revoke the license for the state-owned cement maker PT Semen Indonesia in Rembang, Central Java. If this factory is built the effects on both the environment and the lives of hundreds of local farmers will be disastrous. Paddy fields – their main sources of agriculture and income - will be damaged and mountainous water sources under severe risk of contamination. 
Please take action and sign on to their letter in solidarity: http://tinyurl.com/nx8xl4n
