Investors Will Flatten Plantation Land – Massive construction in Payangan District, the conflicts between the local community and investors were inevitable.

Gianyar – In the midst of the massive construction of hotels and villas in Payangan District, the conflicts between the local community and investors were inevitable. The same thing happened in Banjar Selasih, Puhu, Payangan, Gianyar Regency.

The attitude of investors who insisted on bringing heavy equipment to flatten the plantation land caused a reaction from residents. Wednesday (11/20) morning, dozens of residents carried out resistance by crossing half of the road with trees and applying sharp bamboo fences.

Based on information, the action has been carried out since Tuesday (11/19) night. This resistance began when they got the information that heavy equipment would be sent down to flatten the plantation area. So that dozens of residents spontaneously made efforts to block the heavy equipment.

“Socialization and meetings related to land issues have not found any solution yet. Where the cultivators have never met with the investor. Whenever there is a meeting between investors and cultivators, only representatives are allowed to attend. Even investor representatives cannot decide on citizens demands”, said one of the cultivators, I Made Sudiantara.

Action against the heavy equipment was accompanied by a pair of banners that read various kinds of innuendo for investors. Like the sentence: “Farmers need manure (fertilizer) not bulldozers, build Bali to support farmers” and some writings that pour out the hearts of these farmers.
