Jatigede Dam

Government official: For the sake of a prosperous future!

Man: And me right now Mr? (Paper reads help, sympathetic care)

Hundreds of people in Sumedang regency, West Java, have protested plans to proceed with the construction of the Jatigede dam which will displace more than 70,000 people (who will receive a fraction of the actual value of their land in compensation), submerge five districts and 30 villages as well as inundating some 1,200 hectares of state forest.
