ARTWORK
More than fifty years of anesthesia is not a short period of time for victims and their families to inhale and endure the suffering caused by the crimes against humanity and the 1965/66 genocide in Indonesia. An unfinished business does not mean it should be forgotten. The violations of human rights that happened in Indonesia during 1965 - 1979 have been taken to the court of the International People’s Tribunal (2015) in The Hague. The findings regarding the victims, perpetrators and witnesses have also been presented, resulting in several appeals that should have been carried out by the government. However, several years have passed now, and one would wonder was it just only to get our hopes up?
