At this moment, the House of Representatives of Indonesia is discussing the bill of Land Acquisition for Development which has been submitted by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. This bill includes the provision of land acquisition for development for the public interest and private business interests. 



The bill is targeted to be enacted in 2011, because it is one of the important prerequisites to smooth the process of land provision for development projects, in accordance with the Master plan for Acceleration and Expansion Indonesia Economic Development (MP3EI) 2011-2025 which was launched earlier this year by the President.This bill is based on theassumption that one of the constraints in development project is the difficulty to obtain land for the project, and the existing policies are considered less adequate. However, a just and democratic development should pay attention to the situation, conditions and interests of the people of Indonesia over the interests of private business.



In substance, this bill is not much different from the Presidential Regulation. No. 36 year 2005 and Presidential Regulation No. 65 year 2006 on Land Acquisition for Development for the Public Interest, which have been rejected by most of the civil society as it is considered an instrument of eviction people's lands, and does not provides protection for the affected people, including women. The practice of land acquisition in Indonesia is still left many problems until now. Problems in the practice of land acquisition, among others; forced evictions, practices of collusion related to proof of land rights, unilaterally inventory and identification of land, unilaterally determining compensation, no involvement of communities affected in the determination of the object of land acquisition. Meanwhile, human rights abuses that often occurs in the practice of land acquisition includes intimidation, beatings, shootings, even the arrest of citizens that led to the criminalization, by involving the state apparatus. These are significantly affected to the loss of livelihoods, and the threat to the survival of society, particularly women, who later have to think about the sustainability of household, family and children, the shelter, provision of food, clean water and other household needs. The sustainability of such practices will further impoverish the people of Indonesia.


Civil society in Indonesia has been conducting variety activities to resist and reject the ratification of the Bill. One of them is this 10 days of action to sign on the rejection petition that will be send to the members of the House of Representatives which is scheduled to convene in October this year.

    DALAM kolom sorotan (Kompas, 18/2), Satya Arinanto menjelaskan, pokok pikiran yang membandingkan antara draf Rancangan Undang-Undang (RUU) Kewarganegaraan RI Departemen Kehakiman dan HAM dengan draf Panitia Kerja Pengkajian Diskriminasi (GANDI) dan Forum Komunikasi Kesatuan Bangsa (FKKB).Dalam kesempatan ini, penulis ingin menanggapi tulisan itu dan menjelaskan secara garis besar pokok-pokok pikiran dari draf RUU Kewarganegaraan yang telah disampaikan kepada Badan Legislasi DPR tanggal 14 Februari 2002.Beberapa pokok pikiran yang kami kemukakan, sebenarnya merupakan koreksi kritis atas Undang-Undang (UU) Nomor 62 Tahun 1958 sekaligus Rancangan UU (RUU) Kewarganegaraan RI Departemen Kehakiman dan HAM, yang meliputi prioritas penggunaan asas kewarganegaraan, status kewarganegaraan RI, hak dan kewajiban warga negara, kesetaraan status hukum warga negara perempuan dan pria, pembuktian kewarganegaraan RI, dan beberapa pemikiran tentang hak asasi manusia dan aspek tranparansi dalam penyelenggaraan kewarganegaraan RI.Warga negara secara kolektif merupakan salah satu fundamen penting keberadaan suatu negara, sehingga sudah selayaknya mendapat kepastian dan jaminan hukum yang layak dari negara. Seorang warga negara Indonesia harus mendapat jaminan perlindungan dan kepastian hukum atas hak-hak yang dimiliki, sekaligus kewajiban-kewajiban yang menjadi tanggung jawabnya sebagai warga negara dari suatu negara. Setiap warga negara harus memiliki suatu jaminan kepastian hukum yang dapat membedakan seorang warga negara dengan penduduk atau warga negara dari negara lain di negara RI.Meski sebenarnya merupakan ikhtisar UUD 1945 dan peraturan perundangan terkait, setidaknya pokok pikiran inilah yang mendasari panitia kerja (Panja) untuk memberikan dasar hukum yang layak bagi pengaturan Hak dan Kewajiban Negara dalam RUU Kewarganegaraan yang diajukan. Sehingga secara sistematika, suatu undang-undang Kewarganegaraan RI akan mampu menjawab siapa dan apa konsekuensinya (hak dan kewajiban) bila menjadi warga negara. (Kompas,13 Maret 2002)

    Unlike Indonesians of Arab or Indian descent, Chinese Indonesians are required to have a document that proves they are Indonesian citizens. Whenever Chinese Indonesians deal with the bureaucracy, they are obliged to produce this document. It is an integral part of their administrative experiences of birth, marriage and death. They need it to get an identity card, to enrol in an educational institution, to obtain a business license and to get a passport.Known by the acronym SBKRI, this document is compulsory for all Chinese Indonesians of 21 years of age or over, even if they were born in Indonesia to parents who were already Indonesian citizens. There is no equivalent document for other Indonesians, who simply have to show their identity card and their birth certificate. In practice, the SBKRI is a mark of ethnicity – for which Chinese must pay dearly – that passes down through the generations without end.Cultural violence.(Inside Indonesia 95,Jan-Mar 2009)
