Jakarta slums - a realistic picture of how unbalanced are resources in the world. Often Western corporations use the land and people in third world countries for cheap labour, easy accessible resources and little responsibility - what is left for locals is the trash.

Indonesia is a country in Southeast Asia.

While Western countries produce overflow of stuff, people in countries like Indonesia often live off garbage dumps just to make living possible. Scavenging here is a chance to live, unlike the scavenging culture in the West where living off the trash is an optional alternative.
