Abstract

 This article analyses the meaning of the tutur of the female anti-gold mining troop from Praikaroku Jangga Village, Central Sumba Regency, East Nusa Tenggara. This manuscript is important, because there are a lot of women's activisms at the local level that are not recorded in the history of women's movements in the post-1998 Indonesian reformation. This study is a postcolonial feminist ethnography, where the main basis of its analysis is a postcolonial feminist. The identity of women’s resistance is a subaltern, where their struggle goes beyond a rejection of the gold mining corporation. The study shows that the direction of resistance is leading to food sovereignty. To maintain their endanger living space, the women's troop is only connected by oral speeches of tradition. The postcolonial feminist analyzes dis/interconnectivity between the interests of the state, local-national-global economic-political linkages. The study shows that the women are agencies in caring for natural resources.

Abstract

The position of women in Indonesian society is progressing. The progress trend is supported by several legal instruments and policies that guarantee womens rights. Although adequate legal instruments began, many implementations in the field are distorted. Implementation of the protection schemes for women does not address to the changing of the poor women’s living condition, instead it remains vulnerable. This action research was addressed to analyze and discuss the practices of state social protection for the poor communities, as well as the testimony of beneficiaries. Based on the field learning from both parties, activists from universities and non-governmental organizations, attempt was made to knit some state schemes and policies into a model of protection; it also aimed to facilitate access and accelerate changes.

Abstract

Urban poverty is still a thorny issue in almost all cities in Indonesia. Urban poverty is grouped into two different characteristics: chronic and transient. Chronic poverty experienced by those who are under the poverty line, while transient poverty experienced by those who are around the poverty line. Unlike the chronic group that is often the target of poverty reduction policies, transient group is often overlooked. They do not exist in the scheme of poverty reduction programs. In fact, the number of transient poor population is about 46 percent, compare to the chronic population that is only 11%. With almost having similar condition with the chronic group, transient group is characterized by unstable income, large spending on food, limited access to drinking water, live in the surrounding slums, and having a low quality sanitation. The question is, how the survival strategy of the neglected transient is able to cope with their difficult life. And the most important thing, what program should be done by the government to deal with transient poverty? This paper will discuss the economic living conditions of transient poor families in urban Bengkulu City, Indonesia, reviews their survival strategy, initiatives and experiences. It also talks about ongoing Green Kampong project promoted by the University of Bengkulu that integrates incomes generation efforts for the transient poor and the commitment of environmental protection through the vegetables planting in every idle land in the kampong area.
