In the first quarter of this year, the Indonesian Peasant Aliance (API) focused its efforts on the settlement of the Peasant Case in Sukabumi East Java. The land quarrel started in 1996. On January 28, 2008, API supported the effort on settlement with the National Commission of Human Rights through mediation. The mediation was made among the Sukabumi peasant, a regent of Sukabumi, the head of the regency police, and a representative from the enterprise side. The peasant won 700 USD as compensation.
