The Commission, which is more commonly known in Indonesian as Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi (KPK) is a government agency established to fight corruption. The KPK was formed after special consideration of the extraordinary nature of corruption in Indonesia, which has become systemic and widespread, and has violated the human rights of the Indonesian people.
One of the videos currently featured on the Kanal KPK website is from our previous Moviemento project. ‘No To Supermall’ is about an initiative in Balikpapan, Kalimantan, where for years youth in this oil producing city have called for critical assessment of most of the supermall projects around the city.
Moviemento itself was a collaborative project conducted with Transparency International Indonesia, where we trained youth communities who were already campaigning on issues such as gender, the environment, social development, and culture, to produce their own videos with anti-corruption messages and youth perspectives. The project aimed to strengthen active citizenship and advocacy capacity among Transparency International’s partner organizations in Indonesia, especially the youth.
We are looking forward to further supporting KPK’s website and other media initiatives against corruption in the country in the near future.
