Gov. @Sarundajang2014 & Bupati Sompie Singal: No mining on small islands. Save Bangka – North Sulawesi!
Participate in recommending candidates for Jokowi’s cabinet!
Jul 25, 2014 — Friends of Bangka Island, currently Jokowi, president of Indonesia gives us an opportunity to participate in recommending candidates for the ministerial posts in his cabinet. We should take this opportunity by recommending the people who have shown their dedication to environmental issue to sit in Jokowi cabinet. Strategic positions for the environmental protection are the Ministry of Forestry, Ministry of Fisheries and Marine, and Ministry of Environment.
There are some names that are currently active in saving Bangka Island and have shown their dedication in protecting the environment also in other part of Indonesia: Longgena Ginting and Arifsyah M. Nasution (Greenpeace), Edo Rakhman (Walhi), Maria Taramen (Tunas Hijau), Arief Aziz and Usman Hamid (Change.org), Hendrik Siregar (JATAM), Wahyu Nandang Herawan (LBH) and Didi Koleangan (AMMALTA).
These names could be taken into account if you would like to recommend leaders who care about the environment to sit in the Jokowi's cabinet.
In case there are other names/people who have dedicated their life in protecting environment to be announced, please shared as well to give inspiration to other friends. In solidarity.
