KULON PROGO’S MEGAPROJECT, NYIA, AND PEASANTs/COMMUNITY RESISTANCE 1:
A banner-dropping action was held yesterday at 5 in the morning on the
train bridge Kewek, Yogyakarta, near Malioboro (A tourist area). The banner was in solidarity with those resisting the construction of the airport in Kulon Progo.
For years the peasants have been resisting mining companies and other
mega-projects including Bandara Temon (Temon Airport) or what is well
known as NYIA (NEW YOGYAKARTA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. More detailed
information soon in english and a call for international solidarity
against New Yogyakarta International Airport!
The banner reads as: “Construction of Kulon Progo Airport equals
environmental destruction and the eviction of peasants community.
#YOGYAKARTA IS SPECIAL!
Solidarity!
