KP Solidarity is an an Australian-based group operating in solidarity with the struggles of the farmers of Kulon Progo in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, whose life and culture are currently under threat by a joint Australian-Indonesian iron-ore mine. Kulon Progo Regency is one of the four regencies of the Yogyakarta Special Region, Indonesia. The name stems from the fact that it is located at the west (in Javanese kulon) of Progo River. The capital is Wates. The biggest part of population in Kulon Progo works as farmers. The area is 586.27 km².

Rally, Saturday, June 26, 2010

KP Solidarity in Melbourne is organising a day of protest for Saturday, June 26, 2010.

There has been to date one small action in Melbourne, which appears to have been reasonably effective in drawing the attn of Indonesian authorities and the mining sector to the plight of farmers in KP, so another action, with broader and more widespread participation, would be ideal...
