Organised by:
Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia Australia PPIA


PPIA Pusat bekerja sama dengan PPIA UniMelb menghadirkan diskusi mengenai komunisme dalam Indonesia modern saat ini. Belakangan ini banyak aksi-aksi yang terjadi di Indonesia yang menyuarakan kegusarannya akan fenomena komunisme, apakah masih ada komunisme di Indonesia? Bila memang benar adanya, perlukah kita takuti? Di sisi lain, stigma negatif masih melekat bagi para anak-anak korban 1965 meskipun sedikit demi sedikit fakta-fakta sejarah mulai mengungkapkan apa yang terjadi pada tahun 1965 di Indonesia. Mereka adalah orang Indonesia, yang lahir dan dibesarkan dengan darah merah putih di dalam nadinya, lalu mengapa masih ada diskriminasi bagi mereka? Perlukah diskriminasi tersebut dilanggengkan?Bagaimana sikap pemerintahan saat ini akan tragedy 1965?


Supaya peserta bisa menggali lebih dalam mengenai isu ini, diskusi ini akan diadakan dalam format panelis dengan sesi tanya jawab pada:


Hari/ Tanggal : Kamis/ 22 September 2016

Tempat : Babel G03 (Lower Theatre)
University of Melbourne

Jam : 06:30 pm - 08:30 pm

FREE ENTRY!

Snack ringan akan disediakan. Panelis akan segera diumumkan mendekati jadwal acara. Stay tune!
