Here is a video on Indonesia's Marjinal punk scene might be of interest. The group started on the streets of Jakarta in the late 1990s, their music echoing the hostility felt toward the authoritarian regime of Suharto. Since then the band has become dedicated to helping pave the way for street kids in Indonesia. Marjinal's music is still about the message and not the money, focusing on issues of corruption, poverty, and governmental change. While they may not be as iconic as the Sex Pistols or as hard core as Leftover Crack, it seems they have embraced the true spirit of punk, that everyone owns the music. watch it here
