Hardcore Band Wildeast Release Music Video Rejecting Geothermal Project [Indonesia]

Indonesian hardcore band Wildeast have released a music video for a track called Jaga Lawu off their album Young A Wild Free.

According to the band:

“JAGA LAWU is a movement to anticipate the adverse effects of the Geothermal Power Plant (PLTPB) project in Gunung Lawu, Karanganyar, Central Java, Indonesia. The community rejected the trillions dollars worth project because Mount Lawu is a mountain with a million wonders . Mount Lawu is a symbol of the grandeur and strength of the land of Java. And Mount Lawu is a pillar of the sustainability of the ecosystem of various types of living creatures, whether animals, plants and humans. The people of Karanganyar reject the geothermal project, not just fear of damaging nature. However, they are also worried that if the geothermal project is realized, the water source on Mount Lawu could be threatened. Gunung Lawu has been a ‘barrel of water’ for eight districts in both Central and East Java.”
