Bali protest against tourism reclamation plan turns to song to get message out

The Indonesian government wants to reclaim land in Benoa Bay to develop international tourism. Locals say it will destroy their villages and way of life, forcing fishermen to give up their livelihoods and instead become souvenir sellers.

This is the latest video – and rather catchy song – from ForBali, the NGO organising the 3 year long protest against these plans.
