Minta Maaf, Say Sorry for 65

Join the Campaign

In 1965-1966, up to a million Indonesians were massacred. Hundreds of thousands more were injured, disappeared, raped and imprisoned without trial. The United States and the United Kingdom secretly welcomed and supported the killings.

The innovative documentary THE ACT OF KILLING exposes the staggering reality of Indonesia mass murder. It has given the victims the chance they dream of – Take action now to support their call for President SBY to Say Sorry for '65

Sarwo Edhie Wibowo was the commander of the Indonesian Army’s Para-Commando Regiment (RPKAD) from 1965-67.

ETAN is a U.S.-based grassroots organization working in solidarity with the peoples of Timor-Leste (East Timor), West Papua and Indonesia. ETAN provides information about, and ways to help, Timor-Leste, which was invaded and subjugated by U.S. ally Indonesia in 1975. East Timor chose independence in August 1999 and was soon destroyed by the Indonesian military. Timor-Leste finally became independent on May 20, 2002.  ETAN educates, organizes, and advocates for justice for historic and ongoing crimes against humanity, war crimes, and human rights violations in East Timor, West Papua, and Indonesia. ETAN supports democratic reconstruction of Timor-Leste. ETAN supports restrictions on military assistance to Indonesia in order to support democracy and justice.
