Abdon Nababan, Secretary General of the Indigenous Peoples Alliance of the Archipelago (AMAN), welcomed the ministry’s action to revoke the permit, but stated it should be made clearer exactly how much of the area is covered by the revocation.
“It is also not clear whether this cancellation only [concerns] sugar cane plantations or other commodities, for instance palm oil,†said Nababan, adding that there was possibility for other commodity industries to reach Aru if the minister excludes only sugar cane from the islands’ landscape.
In a previous statement, Nababan underlined that conversion to plantations would take away the rights of indigenous communities over their territories, as the livelihoods of local communities are dependent on existing natural resources. In short, these communities were being denied the use of their own land by their own government.

"We urge the Indonesian government to immediately implement the Constitutional Court and House of Representatives' decisions to pass a bill on the acknowledgment and protection of indigenous people's rights," AMAN secretary-general Abdon Nababan said in a statement in Jakarta on Sunday, as quoted by Antara news agency.
He reminded that the 2012 court verdict had a crucial role to play in indigenous people's struggle as it stated that customary forests did no longer belong to the state.
"Previously, customary forests were considered as state forests, paving the way for the expropriation of land and natural resources, including customary forests, belonging to indigenous people," said Abdon.
Unfortunately, he added, many policies contradicted the court's verdict, giving the sense that some efforts were aimed at delaying the bill and ultimately overturning it.

The concessions would also impact local communities - which have struggled in the past with ethnic and religious conflict exacerbated by the influx of transmigrants from other parts of Indonesia - by failing to recognize their traditional rights, according to Abdon Nababan, the Secretary-General of the Indigenous Peoples Alliance of the Archipelago (AMAN).
"The concessions in question takes away the rights of indigenous communities over their territories," Abdon said.
