Like other indigenous peoples around the world, the Samin community in the Sukolilo village is now facing the same challenges due to the development projects of cement industries in Indonesia. Despite these realities, the Samin farmers choose to protest peacefully against such a destructive development project. Examining the indigenous farmer’s peaceful resistance for protecting their livelihood and tradition in the Sukolilo village against cement factories, this paper explores the protection of indigenous people right in Indonesia against a development project in Sukolilo village, located in the Pati district, Central Java.
