The Indonesian Massacres, 1965-1966: Image and Reality

It is now half a century since the mass killings of 1965-66 in Indonesia, and the multiple human rights abuses which persisted over the next decade and more. Attention has been revived towards what could for a long time be described as a “black hole of history”. In Indonesia survivors and their families, human rights organizations, lawyers and academics have called for an end to the impunity which for so long has been enjoyed by the perpetrators. There are calls too for the government to act on the damning report on these events which was delivered to the Attorney-General in 2012 by the National Commission on Human Rights Komnas HAM. Two powerful films by the American film-makers Joshua Oppenheimer have attracted widespread attention in Indonesia (in spite of numerous attempts by right-wing groups to block their showing) and abroad. And in November 2015 an International People’s Tribunal (IPT 1965) convened in The Hague to hear compelling evidence of the killings — in which at least 400,000 civilians died — and other human rights abuses. (I am a member of the panel of judges, which will deliver its findings later in 2016). It seems relevant therefore to post this paper which I wrote for Mark Levene & Penny Roberts, eds., The Massacre in History (1999) on a dark period of modern history which still remains to be fully explored and exposed.


the Guardian 1990

In 1990 The Guardian sent me to Indonesia to write an investigative feature on the 25th anniversary of the massacres of 1965-66: no other media were much interested in the subject then and knowledge of the appalling story was mostly confined to academic research. I am reproducing my report here because I think it shows how much could be learnt about those events even under Suharto’s dictatorship. We should bear in mind that today attempts in Indonesia to discuss the past are still threatened by militia and blocked by police

Suharto (Orbituary)

Indonesian dictator whose 30-year rule was built on ruthless repression, cronyism and manipulation of the world’s rival superpowers
