Defense of the Student Movement: Documents from the Recent Trials
Volume & Issue:
Page range: 1-32Compilation of three documents prepared for presentation at trials on charges of insulting President Suharto, of leaders of the 1978 protest movement, which opened in late January 1979. The first and second documents are so-called excepties (demurrers) presented to the court by top student leaders Lukman Hakim (who in early 1978 was Chairman of the Student Council of the University of Indonesia) and Heri Akhmadi (who at that time held a comparable position in the Bandung Institute of Technology). The last and longest of the documents presented to the court which are translated here are the useful chronology and detailing of the various phases and emphases of the student movement from the aftermath of the 1977 elections to the critical early weeks of January 1978.
