Urgent Appeal: release Biak prisoners

West Papuan political prisoner Yohanes Boseren, currently on trial in Biak, is suffering from mental health problems thought to be related to the heavy beating he suffered when he was arrested. Human rights lawyers are calling for his immediate release and for him to be given the medical treatment he urgently needs.

Indonesia: Don't Make Sarwo Edhie a Hero!

Sarwo Edhie Wibowo was the commander of the Indonesian Army’s Para-Commando Regiment (RPKAD) from 1965-67. Several reports allege that he orchestrated and presided over the murder of hundreds of thousands  accused of being communist sympathizers. The President of Indonesia wants to make Sarwo an official hero of Indonesia.

As Joshua Oppenheimer, director of "The Act of Killing" states: "Sarwo Edhie Wibowo was one the architects of this crime. Anointing him a national hero is a statement to the entire world that Indonesia will continue to be a place of fear and thuggery, corruption and violence." Making him a national hero will add more injustice to the victims and the families of the victims of 1965.
