Nothing Much Happened Today 15

Sinabung has been erupting sporadically since 2010, when it killed two people, but farmers refuse to leave its deadly slopes because the land is so fertile.

That’s Sinabung, as in Mount Sinabung, Sumatra, Indonesia.

I don’t know if this is a ritual, a protest, if they’re being punished for something, or it’s a new crop of tech support.

Well looky what the google found. From here:

JAKARTA: Six residents of Cempaka Putih, Central Jakarta, buried themselves up to their shoulders on Monday in protest of a government plan to evict them from their homes.

The residents buried themselves 1.2 meters deep in the ground.

Salman, 52, one of the residents, said he had been left with no other option to defend his land.

“It is a fight for my children and grandchildren,” he said.

Salman and other residents said they had been living in the area for more than 57 years. The government recently announced a plan to build an office for the religious court on the land.

Two people fainted during the protest, which lasted an hour, reported.
