This article is an examination of the case study of the Sundanese Peasant Union (Serikat Petani Pasundan, spp) in post-authoritarian Indonesia. It aims to answer the question of why spp and West Javanese peasant movements in general are able to force local and national state elites to accommodate some elements of agrarian reforms promoted by the peasants. I argue that the new political opportunity structure provides a new opportunity for West Javanese peasant movements and spp to organize as a successful social movement.
