State to finance infrastructure repairs of Lapindo disaster

Slowly but sure Lapindo's burden over Sidoarjo disaster would be financed with state budget. Yesterday, parliament and government agreed to use the state budget to finance the repairs of infrastructure facilities hit by the mudflow, reported. Last week, parliament also endorsed government's proposal to use the disaster fund in 2006 budget to help people affected by the mudflow. Repair of two facilities (road & railway) could cost the state Rp443 billion. How generous!

The fact that our tax money goes to pay for a disaster that was man made, by the Vice President JK and Minister B, is an absolute travesty. The VP and Minister B should pay for this out of their own pocket. Everybody knows they can afford to ten times over.

But they just don't care, do they...
Especially when most Indonesian people just didn't do anything other than talking behind these gentlemen's we do..
We definitely need social and civil control... not to be the provocateur agent
nowadays these social and civil control (people class action) is truly needed by this country and this nation...
