Domestic Workers and Climate Change

The main problems that drag women to become workers abroad, especially as domestic workers, are due to limited living space caused by massive expansion of big plantations, such as palm, pulp paper, or any other big investment. ... For the sake of economic growth, local communities are imposed upon to follow the capital owner's homogenisation of commodities such as agricultural conversation to palm, pesticide use, and modern life. Political, economic, and cultural benefits are often not acquired by the society. We have lost so much in the name of this big investment.

Capturing The Spirit of Wellington’s Greens Wind

In an effort to tackle climate change and to improve the conditions of political leadership in Indonesia that is still far from green values, the existence of a Green Party Indonesia has become urgent. In many cases, the oligarchy of current political parties still obstructs the leadership of the good people and the work of Greens in Indonesia. Thus, there is no other choice but to build the Green Party of Indonesia as early as possible to save the good people and promote Green politics. The blowing of this Green wind should be maintained and nurtured. Indonesian Greens should be able to use this wind to free their country from environmental suffering. This wind will also fly the pride of Indonesia as "the lungs of the earth" with other tropical rainforests countries. This wind will only continue to exist if Indonesia Greens are united. The wind that is not cold at all. The wind that warmful, refreshed and very fun. Wind of friendship. Wind of change.
