This study focuses on the pattern of community resistance affected by the Brown Canyon sand mining in Semarang. The community response that should occur when there is sand mining with indications of environmental damage is open resistance. This study tries to provide another picture from previous research, about how the community does not take open resistance to sand mining activities. The research method used is ethnography with research instruments in the form of participatory observation, interviews and literature studies. Determination of informants is based on the radius of the distance to the community most affected by mining activities. The results showed that the resistance pattern of the affected community was based on four factors. First, the community is indifferent to access to information about environmental issues such as impacts and mining permits. Second, the community considers the owner of the mine to be from their environment which should not be rejected. Third, the community feels that the opening of jobs from mining activities is an advantage for them. Fourth, the community realizes that the political power of mining owners is very strong to be resisted. These four factors then form a closed resistance pattern or hidden transcript according to Scott.
