Call for International Solidarity to End Isolation of Anarchists in Indonesia

Calling for anarchists to take global solidarity actions



While we know that the state will act in a totalitarian manner in this times and as being an anarchists we dont value their values, but in our constant struggle against the prevailing capitalist ideology that continues to colonize our daily lives, the purpose of ABC is to help them in legal matters in which they get the “rights” for them and to communicate with them, to make them not isolated and feeling lonely. Every decision is theirs and we value that, but when the state is trying to orchestrate a bullshit narrative into scapegoating the anarchists or the anarchist movement in general in Indonesia, in order to veil their own incompetency in dealing with the crisis and pandemic, we ask you, not for money or anything involving that, but to show your solidarity in whatever means. It can be graffiti, banner dropping, or most importantly to acknowledge every Indonesian consulate about the isolation and the arbitrary action that the police are doing to them.

These are the earlieast reports from the Individualist Sect concerning the arrests and media sensationalisation:

Chronology of Tangerang Anarchists Isolation

On April 9, 2020, R, Af, and Ri were arrested in a tavern in Tangerang on vandalism charges. Apart from the minor crimes they committed, the police showed an arrest warrant that did not have their names listed. The family was also notified of this arrest on April 11, 2020, 2 days after the arrest. In fact, Af is a minor. The legal process is not in accordance with procedures and until now all three are still blocked by the police from getting legal assistance. • The right to receive legal representation is stipulated in articles 69, 70, 72, Law no. 8 of 1981 concerning Criminal Procedure Law. • “The tendency to obstruct access to legal representation is a violation of the right to a fair trial as contained in Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Ratified in Law No. 12 of 2005)” • Immediately Fulfill Their Rights To Get A Legal Assistant!
