About

Who is she? Is she smiling? Is she happy? This Leonardo Da Vinci’s Monalisa painting describes me best and my complexities as a human being.  

‘Merdeka’ means independence in Indonesian. This site was born in 2018 as an activism platform by providing truthful information and news about the world. Also with the hope that Indonesia and other countries under the West’s imperialism will finally get their full independence.

In the era of fake news and propaganda, Indonesia Merdeka tries to present truth and other independent alternative sources of news to the public. From politics, economics, finance and other world issues.

The founder of this site Sianny Rooney is an MBA Graduate with concentration in finance from what is considered top universities in the world. She is also a self-taught web developer and founder of Real Estate Listing Platform: Rocketvilla Europe & Rocketvilla Indonesia. She loves to write and recently published her very first short novel. Her interests include politics, finance, economics, history, computer programming and all things web. 

When she is not managing several websites and writing, you can find her either in her kitchen as she loves cooking and baking or in her garden,  growing organic vegetables and beautifying her garden. She is a mother of two who also like interior design. She juggles so many different roles, as a mother and wife who would like to contribute to make the world a better place.
