Abstract

The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal development project in Bali is part of the efforts to make the Bali Green Province program success. The transition fuel from oil to gas is seen as effort to preserve the environment. However, this project experienced resistance from indigenous peoples. This rejection started with the relocation of the LNG terminal construction location in Bali. Initially, this development was projected to be in the Benoa Harbor area, but in May 2022 it was officially moved to the coastal area of Sidakarya. The relocation of the LNG terminal project triggered rejection movement from Indigenous society of desa adat Intaran (traditional village) because the coastal area of Sidakarya is part of the desa adat Intaran. This study aims to identify how the movement made by the indigenous people of the desa adat Intaran in rejecting the construction of an LNG terminal in Bali. This type of research is descriptive qualitative with a case study approach, using secondary data from online and printed literature. By using new social movements theory and the identity-oriented theory, researcher found that Tri Hita Karana as collective identity of the Intaran indigenous people, solidarity between community and commitment became the determinant factors for this social movement.
