The phenomenon of changing the contents of the Komisi Penyidikan Korupsi (KPK) law article became the most highlighted political problem in Indonesia at the end of 2019. The reason for this incident was predicted to be the end of the triumph of the journey of the KPK institution as the only independent institution authorized to follow up on corruption cases in Indonesia. Thus, this research aimed to study the Komisi Penyidikan Korupsi (KPK) Strengthening Movement in The Civil Society Perspective. The data source of this research is based on events that occurred at the end of the year, as well as the many local and national media outlets that covered this event as a historic event during the reign of the president of the Republic of Indonesia at this time. Researchers conducted further literature studies to obtain in-depth information with the support from a bit of news published online, as well as other supporting this journal. Collecting data using descriptive research methods by relying on literature studies, and the thoughts of experts with data analysis, as well as accurate information through news media and other literary assistance, and uses analytical theory as a basic guideline for researching a case.

            The results found that: Community actions or movements created by many students throughout Indonesia, as well as the surrounding community, are a picture that most of the people of the State of Indonesia care about the principles of justice that will be deliberately relaxed by the ruling government at this time. So that this community movement seized the attention of the people of the State of Indonesia to participate by supporting the demonstration to strengthen the KPK as the only corruption investigating institution established in the State of Indonesia. The basic principle of the investigative regulation that is being redesigned is considered detrimental to the KPK institution in investigating every case of corruption. The planned amendment to the article of the KPK law that will be ratified has drawn a lot of pros and cons that caused turmoil among the people. So that the Indonesian people must unite by creating a social movement to fight for justice for institutions that are responsible for fighting corruption which is a classic problem of the Indonesian nation. Another purpose of making this article is as a flashback of legal and political problems that occurred in Indonesia at that time. So that the community and the government of the State of Indonesia can also learn to improve the government system and legal system in the future.
