Budiman Sudjatmiko And His Fight For Democracy In Indonesia (1997)


in Indonesia nothing has feared more than instability but seems like these have become more common after three decades of military back rule large cracks are beginning to appear in the new order regime but as with many things here first appearances can deceive this isn’t a riot at all it’s a police training exercise for the election campaign like the election itself the uniformed men in charge are making sure nothing is left to chance least of all the outcome this is the ruling Golkar party star campaigner city HUD the anti rahman irr or tort is a tycoon with a vast business empire she also happens to be President Suharto Zelda’s daughter like the rest of the first family she’s treated like royalty Oh despite accusations of corruption collusion and nepotism got cars leaders show no sign of being under any pressure after all these people can afford to be confident they know they’re going to win if you do get an interview with the president’s daughter don’t expect to be alone chocolate and get Holly typical cast Arunachala dance joy to the dunya and hustle the young to the land area at the Ganesha karma kami Korea Indies at academia but with pneumonia could we be looking at the prospect of a Soeharto dynasty may be no OD the under dynasties have one year to swim again a Panamanian system in Baku in Asia Eddy despite being surrounded by local journalists not one asked a question but it wasn’t for lack of interest next day the Suharto dynasty story was front page news across Indonesia what to a foreign journalist appeared a harmless inquiry was for the bridled local press a question deemed too tough and too risky to ask most people here don’t ask their political leaders tough questions they’re simply too afraid to directly challenge the government and with good reason those who do run the risk of having the full weight of the country’s security forces come crashing down upon them often with dire consequences take the example of the young activist booty man Sir Jack Miko I first met buddy man a year ago in the lead-up to the Jakarta riots he and his fellow activists from the People’s Democratic Party along with thousands of others were showing their support for pro-democracy leader Megawati Sukarnoputri woody man was quick to impress fearless and bright he appeared to have the makings of a future political leader but he man argued that too many people had been marginalized under Suharto’s rule and that the country was in urgent need of political reform using their networks among workers farmers and students boo demons PRD sought radical change and was prepared to go out on a precarious limb to achieve that Sidhu Sardinia Yahoo Tama to Latura Pokemon Oh Massa Lee to Tomo police asset Ihnen van yeah Peru in the wake of the riots megawatt E’s popularity and international profile saved her from prosecution but the authorities had no concerns about turning on a little-known and left-wing PRD William and Sue jak niqqa was arrested and charged with subversion several weeks ago as his trial drew to an end I met Woodie man again this time behind the bars of a court holding cell bootyman last time we spoke to you you were a free man how have you been treated in custody there are some of my friends that have been tortured by electricity by electricity they beat our friends in Surabaya in Jakarta but especially for me the they just are intimidating me there’s nothing in the face of a possible death penalty these young men have remained defiant to the last they’re the stormtroopers of Indonesian activism every chance they get to preach their message as grasped even as they’re led away to face their judges the court that bodyman appears before is far from independent these judges are under intense political pressure and it’s rare for them not to bend like the national elections the outcome of Buda man’s trial is a foregone conclusion this is the final day of hearings body man tells the judges won’t be entering a plea he declares their court to be unjust instead he says he’ll read a statement there’s an adjournment as the court decides Buddha man’s mother and father watched their sons Deering performance from the public gallery they both support his stand and have suffered as a consequence the military accused woody man’s father of being a communist ignoring the fact that he’s a devout Muslim syusai yakiniku nom de minuto oppinion argaman Volante sido ghetto Pelican and Chaya a Pagano Runyan Villar until mr. camenisch garen eventually booty man returns to court having won agreement to read his statement with a flourish he dismisses his lawyers as foreign diplomats journalists and supporters log on bully man begins to read from a carefully prepared text making full use of what may be the last public platform he has it’s not long before this natural politician is in full rhetorical flight the gallery is impressed the judge is clearly not over four hours Buddha man presents a stinging critique of the Suharto regime on the bench the judges struggle to stay awake the packed courtroom is anything but bored by the end only the judges and prosecution remain unmoved booty man has led back to prison the verdict and sentencing will take place in one week’s time but even how do you feel about the prospect of spending maybe more than 10 years maybe 15 years in jail yeah we just be still believing that we could elite the party in front from the prison and I think still we could communicate with the other people the member of the are they through letter or something like that we will go call the International Security from the Australian community also to put to put the pressure on this government yeah they can be multi slow economy will demo develop an ambassador’s bazooka I welcome you know who got here it was a hot girl come on making our PC you can be DJing is a girl be a busker coming in beacon the day of the verdict has arrived booty man and the other activists are taken back to court they’ve been in custody for nearly a year but their spirits haven’t fallen Oh once again booty one tells the judges he has no faith in their justice what’s more he says he doesn’t care what verdict they hand down and announces he’s leaving the court yeah in the crush Buddha man’s mother and father attempt to embrace their son his mother is distraught crying out as Buddha man is led away ha on the streets outside protesters gather so do the police then plainclothes agents from state intelligence and to everyone here as Intel move in the target is not just the protesters journalists are also subjected to their thuggery even the fine media is not exempt in his absence booty man Suja Miko is sentenced to 13 years in prison as he’s taken to jail every last opportunity to address his supporters and so wondered bully man’s day in court it’s not just radicals who rail against rampant corruption and repression it’s the mainstream these people belong to the Muslim based PPP it’s a state sanctioned party but with the banning of megawatt E’s Indonesian Democratic Party it served as a de facto opposition during the current elections although part of the elaborate facade of Indonesian democracy these people also feel that they have been marginalized and they’re angry about it hasanul domi Wangari approve and even Jerry Rachel did at Rhema Dan Hana part a pedi gamma Yama Sibyl haces Kenickie daddy coming out the military now claims Buddha man’s PR d– is responsible for these outbursts they steadfastly refused to acknowledge that by muslim political debate not only have they angered radicals but also the mainstream the distances faction felt by many Indonesians hasn’t been so deep since the beginning of Suharto’s rule meanwhile a young man begins his long prison term vide Munsu Jack Miko was 27 years old he’ll be 40 before he can again walk free on Jakarta streets you you

  7. Dari dulu PKI gitu, ngambil tameng wong cilik, dengan asas butuh kebebasan.

    Slogan wong cilik ampuh karena sebagian Rakyat Indonesia masih sebagian besar berpendidikkan rendah.

    Ingat saat Pemerintahan SBY, kenaikkan BBM diiringi dengan demon dari tameng Wong Cilik.

    Kamuflase Politik sudah biasa terjadi.
