Smoking out Indonesia’s youth tobacco problem

    The above video from Unreported World shows how Indonesian children have borne the brunt of transnational tobacco giants’ exploitation of lax smoking laws and regulations. 

    In the world’s fastest-growing tobacco market, cigarette manufacturers have capitalized on lax regulations to capture new users through prolific marketing, sponsorships, and trade fairs. But at 90 million smokers, civil society is rising up against the public health time bomb that has seen children victimized both as consumers and producers of the deadly tobacco trade.
