Equal rights for all drug traffickers


In the spotlight, 30 October 2015

by Alex Flor

Condemning Massive Attack Against Indonesia’s Freedom of Expression


24 October 2015

Open Statement

Indonesia’s freedom of expression and critical thinking are under attack. Series of repressive and violent acts by the authorities against attempts to critically revisit and review the 1965 communist purge for the betterment of the nation and its people are a strong proof that the totalitarian legacy from the New Order Regime is still alive and kicking.

Suharto may be gone but the guards of the old regime are still watching the people’s move, and in many ... read more
