Introduction prior to the screening by researcher Ratna Saptari (Leiden University).

In the last fifteen years, Saptari has written extensively on gender and labour relations; workplace politics; domestic workers; collective and individual memories. Her continued focus on industrial workers was inspired by her involvement with Indonesian worker politics during Soeharto's authoritarian regime. Currently she is also involved with the Indonesian Migrant Workers' Union in the Netherlands.

During this brief introduction, she will give a general outline of the reponse to such disasters in Indonesia by the government, large companies and the community.
