Abstract

Students are considered an essential element in the social change structure in society. Information technology has changed how people view things, including the student protest style against the Government. Nowadays, students express their aspirations through social media. One of the BEM uploads on Instagram managed to attract conversation in the public sphere, namely the 2021 Udayana Bali BEM upload entitled The Guardian Of Oligarch. This study aims to analyze student criticism text messages on Instagram and why students criticize government policies in the Joko Widodo regime. This study found that BEM Udayana Bali 2021 students interpreted Jokowi's existence only as a guardian of the Oligarchy because of the ratification of the Minerba Law, the work creation law, the weakening of the KPK, and the existence of Buzzer used by politicians. The reasons students criticize are that students are a privileged identity, there is anxiety among educated youth classes about their future and a burden on the history of previous generations of students. Meanwhile, using social media, Instagram, to criticize government policies is an alternative means to fight the discourse from the Government and mobilize the student movement.
