Perkebunan Karet Penyambung Hidup

Masyarakat Desa Sri Gunung, Kecamatan Sungai Lilin, Kabupaten Musibanyuasin, Sumetera Selatan hidup berdampingan bersama PT Hindoli (Cargil Group) sejak tahun 1991. Banyak gejolak penolakan masyarakat pada saat itu yang membuat konflik tanah seluas 120 Ha di desa mereka tetap menjadi sengketa hingga saat ini.

Kunjunga sawit watch bulan Mei 2012 lalu membuktikan sisa sisa gejolak itu tetap ada di masyarakat. Dimana perjuangan menuntut kembalinya tanah meraka yang seluas 120 Ha tetap dilakukan hingga ke tingkat DPR RI. Namun tidak ada jawaban sedikit pun dari pihak perusahaan. Meski sudah ada surat keputusan dari Gubernur pada saat itu, yang meminta langsung kepada perusahaan untuk menyelesaikan sengketa tanah ini.

Masyarakat tidak hanya diam selama proses penyelesaian kasus mereka. Komoditas lokal mereka berupa karet masih tetap dibudidayakan. Bahkan Kebun karet masyarakat tidak sedikit yang berdampingan dengan Kabun milik perusahaan, tidak sedikit juga masyarakat yang mulai mencoba menanam sawit secara mandiri meski hanya 2 Ha.

Gejolak kasus dan konflik tanah di desa mereka tidak menipiskan semangat mereka untuk tetap mengelola segala sumber daya yang ada. Masyarakat tidak terhanyut dengan konflik yang ada bahkan sebagian mereka memanfaatkan kekayaan tanah dengan membuat parik percetakan bata dan genting.

 

Masyarakat desa Sri Gunung adalah salah satu contoh masyarakat di daerah konflik yang perlu di contoh bagi masyarakat desa lainnya yang mengalami nasib yang tidak jauh berbeda. Upaya “penyambung”  hidup tidak pernah putus dilakukan oleh masyarakat Desa Sri Gunung, meski sedang ada gejolak konflik tanah di desa mereka.

 

 

 

 

 

Rubber Plantation as Source of Livelihoods

 

The people of Sri Gunung village, Singai Lili, Mui Banyuasin, South Sumatera are living side by side with PT. Hindoli (Cargil Group) since 1991. Disputes between the community and company have occurred several times. One of the issue between the community and the company involved land conflict with total area of 120 ha. The issue remains unresolved until today.

Sawit Watch visited the area in May 2012, where we found the remaining conflicts in the community. Their struggle to gain back their land of 120 ha is still carried on, and is now brought to the National Legislative level. Unfortunately, although the Governor at the time has directly asked the company to resolve this land conflict, there has been any significant outcome until today. The community has not only remains quiet throughout the process. Local commodity such as timber is continuously being cultivated. The existence of community’s timber plantations are mostly side by side with the company’s oil palm plantation. Several community members have also planted their own independent oil palm trees, even though the area only consisted of 2 ha.

By far the land conflict has fail to broke down the people’s spirit. The people still continuously manage their leftovers resources. They do not get carried away by the conflict, indeed they are making the best out of the richness of the land they possess, such as building printing office and brick factory.

The community of Sri Gunung is a good example for other communities who are going through the same problem. The effort to make the best out of what is left is continuously carried on by the people, although the conflict with the company is still going on.
