“Lumpur Lapindo File: Konspirasi SBY-Bakrie” (Resensi Buku)

Enam tahun sudah semburan panas lumpur Lapindo di Sidoarjo. Secara teknis, belum ada kemajuan yang berarti untuk menutup semburan lumpur ini, bahkan semakin luas wilayah yang terkenai dampak. Secara sosial-pun juga begitu. Ganti rugi yang terus dijanjikan oleh PT Lapindo Brantas Inc (LBI) melalui PT Minarak Lapindo Jaya (MLJ) juga tak kunjung jelas. Padahal korban Lapindo telah menderita cukup lama, bukan hanya karena tercerabut dari kebutuhan sosialnya tetapi juga aspek ekonominya.

Semangat keprihatinan ini yang melandasi penulis Ali Azhar Akbar, menuliskan buku “Lumpur Lapindo File: Konspirasi SBY-Bakrie”. Mengingat karakteristik mayarakat kita yang meminjam istilah Ali Azhar bahwa masyarakat kita itu mudah lupa dan pemaaf, maka kehadiran buku ini tak hanya mengingatkan kembali masyarakat akan peristiwa Semburan Lumpur Lapindo dam dampaknya. Tetapi juga menyingkap adanya konspirasi atas penanganan lapindo termasuk adanya perampokan APBN yang dilakukan atas kerja sama korporat denga…

The Da Vinci Code

Punya buku best seller siapa yang tidak mau. Para penggila buku ataupun novel pasti selalu berburu hal-hal yang menjadi best seller, ini pendapat saya kalau ada yang complain silahkan.. hehe 
Tapi tentunya best seller juga tidak sembarang didapatkan, banyak juga yang selain susah didapatkan dan mempunyai harga yang cukup menguras waktu eh menguras dompet. Menguras dompet karena memng belum punya penghasilan, membeli buku cumin dari hasil menabung atau menyisihkan uang saku bulanan. 
Salah satu best seller yang saya tahu nih, adalah buku The Da Vinci Code karya Dan Brown yang juga di Filmkan. Saya sebenarnya tidak terlalu mencari atau berburu buku buku yang termasuk best seller sepertipun film film yang sedang heboh di masyarakat, yang pasti kalau lagi mau baca yah cari buku kalau bagus yah dibaca.
Mengenai buku TheDa Vinci Code ini sebenarnya bukanlah buku dalam bentuk nyata, wuih ajaib. Haha maksudnya saya bisa baca cerita The Da Vinci Code ini dari sebuah E-book. Salah kah ? secara hu…

Real Mr. Bean Tells Indonesia to Brace for Disappointment

A day after the premier of Indonesian horror movie “Mr. Bean Kesurupan Depe,” (Mr. Bean Obsessed With Depe), Rowan Atkinson warned Indonesian audiences to be aware that he was not starring in the film.

“Hello Mr Bean fans in Indonesia, we have just heard that there is a new film out in Indonesia with ‘Mr Bean’ in the title,” the real Mr. Bean, Atkinson, wrote on his official Facebook page on Friday. “Please be aware that it has nothing to do with your beloved Mr Bean or Mr Rowan Atkinson so please avoid being disappointed.”

In the film, an unidentified actor claiming to also be from the United Kingdom impersonates Mr. Bean as a pocong (Indonesian ghost). “Bean Kesurupan Depe,” produced by K2K Production, provides no details on the real name of the actor, nor is it listed on the movie’s promotional posters or closing credits. Producer KK Dheeraj has declined to reveal the name of the actor. In an earlier film promotion, Dheeraj said that he had been trying to get Mr. Bea…

Indonesia's forests of corruption

As the public servants of Indonesia's Forestry Ministry stand waiting for the lifts, they are assailed by warnings against graft. "Stop bribes, corruption," says a large sign on level three. "We officers of the Ministry of Forestry are anti-bribes," asserts another. It would seem patronising if it were not so necessary.
"The forestry sector," said Chandra Hamzah, the deputy chairman of Indonesia's Corruption Eradication Commission, in 2010, "is a source of unlimited corruption."
The department earns $15 billion a year in revenue from selling forestry permits and the investors with the deepest pockets are those who want to log forests or turn them into plantations. The illegal trade in logging and forest concessions, fuelled by bribes, cronyism and corruption, is invisible but probably many times larger. On climate change, Indonesia is being pulled in two directions. Politically it appears serious about the task of reducing its em…

Indonesia Arrests Two Pro-Independence Activists in Papua

Two pro-independence activists were arrested in Indonesia’s restive Papua province for holding “anarchic protests”, national police said Friday.

One of those arrested was Bukhtar Tabuni, head of the West Papua National Committee, who had left prison last year after serving three years for organizing a 2008 rally, national police spokesman Boy Rafli Amar said.

Tabuni was arrested on Thursday in the city of Abepura along with another activist, Jefri Wandepbud.

“The men were arrested in relation with anarchic protests” by the West Papua National Committee, Amar said.

He said the group is suspected of organizing protests in recent months that have left shops, public facilities and a university campus in several Papuan cities badly vandalized.

Pro-independence rallies and displaying separatist symbols are considered treason in Indonesia, and protests in Papua have ended in bloody clashes with police.

The West Papua National Committee denied it was responsible for any violence a…
