Aceh Human Rights NGO Network

In 1998, fifteen NGOs concerned with human rights abuses in Aceh founded the Aceh Human Rights NGO Network (Koalisi NGO HAM Aceh). Their goal was to build a regional and international network for human rights advocacy in Aceh. The Network envisages a society in which the values of humanity, social justice, gender and democracy are respected. The Koalisi campaigns to raise awareness of the human rights situation in Aceh, locally as well as internally. It investigates and records human rights violations; provides assistance for victims through litigation and non-litigation approaches; and lobbies the local and central governments to address human rights violations and the rehabilitation of victims. On the grassroots level, the Koalisi has established Centers of Human Rights Legal Assistance (PusatBantuanHakAsasiManusia or PB HAM) in six different conflict areas within Aceh. These Centers consist of human rights lawyers and litigators, and facilitate human rights assistance on the village level. Since 2002, these Centers have become independent, led by MaimulFidar.

Center for Strategic and International Studies

Research: Since its establishment, CSIS has seen its basic mission in terms of being a vehicle for new and independent ideas particularly within Indonesia. In an era of centralised policy making in the early Soeharto years, this meant (apart from general public education) more of a focus on providing policy advice and ideas direct to government. With changing developments within Indonesia, CSIS audiences have become steadily more diverse, particularly through the growth in influence of NGOs, civil society groups and the media during the 1980s and after.

GerakanPerjuangan Anti Diskriminasi (GANDI)

1 3 – 15 May 1998 riots against the Indonesian Chinese in Jakarta, Solo, and other cities, were shocking so deeply in the hearts and minds of the Chinese. The riots spread so quickly and so fiercely, happened in three consecutive days in a metropolitan city and recorded by so many television life broadcast, and yet, without any evidence of effective efforts from the authority to control, creating an impression that it was deliberately intended to hurt the Chinese at large. The burning of homes and shops at such a large scale, the bloodshed, the killing and raping of innocent people, young and old, were indeed a very traumatic life experience for the Chinese, unprecedented, in Indonesia. Literally, it was abarbaricventure : thousands of people disappear and died of organised violence. These were the tragic moments that will not be easily forgotten! Very concerned with this tragedy, a group of Indonesian Chinese businessmen and executives gathered and after so much deliberation decided to form an institution to fight for our dignity and human rights. KH Abdurrachman Wahid (Gus Dur), who was the President of NahdlatulUlama (union of Islam clerics), responded instantly and declaring his support to our plea. In fact, the name GANDI was his idea, referring to the great man Mahatma Gandhi. GANDI was officiated by Gus Dur on November 6, 1998 at his house (Ciganjur), observed also by Megawati Sukarnoputeri (now the Vice President of Indonesia).

INSIST

"We believe that injustice is at the core or root of all of the social problems that have occurred at any time and place throughout the history of human civilization, particularly those experienced by the groups that have been at the lowest, most ignored economic, political, and social-cultural levels; We also believe that the social structures that have developed thus far are unjust, and result in economic, political, and social-cultural inequalities. As a result, some people have become increasingly prosperous, have a high level of access to resources, have broad opportunities to express themselves, and can determine the decision making process that impacts the broader community. On the other hand, the majority of the people are increasingly disempowered, ignored, and turned into objects or victims; For these reasons, goals and efforts to eliminate all types and forms of injustice must be based on the empowerment of groups that have, to this point, been placed in weak, marginalised positions. They must be empowered to become active, critical actors in all processes of social transformation, moving towards the realisation of more just economic, political, and cultural systems, so that they can make a greater contribution to the advancement of civilization and humanity overall. In realizing these goals, social transformation must be achieved through systematic efforts in various areas at both the micro and macro levels. These goals can only become reality if they have a foundation in the following basic values:  Pluralism: the belief that difference and diversity are a strength.  Non-discrimination: attitudes and behaviors that do not differentiate among people based on any kind of preference.  Human rights: recognizing, prioritizing, and working to implement all of the basic and natural rights of every person, as have been agreed to by the people of the world.  Democracy: recognizing, prioritizing, and constantly working to implement all principles of participation, transparency, and accountability.  Loyalty and equality: working to build relationships and cooperation with all parties based on shared concern and equal position.  Social equality of gender: working to realize justice in gender relations, both in our own circle and in the larger community.  Sustainability of resources and the environment: working to achieve balance and preservation of resources and the environment around us.  Local wisdom: honoring and working to develop local community systems of knowledge and institutions that have been shown to be in accordance with and support all the values above.

IRD INDONESIA OFFICE

Since 1998, IRD has been fulfilling its mission to reduce the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable groups by implementing programs that offer both immediate humanitarian assistance and long term post-emergency recovery programs. These programs are aimed at improving the quality of life for vulnerable groups, including displaced persons, refugees, and others. In emergencies, we provide targeted critical services such as essential commodities, food aid, water and sanitation, and medicines, intended to meet immediate needs of affected populations. For longer-term recovery, we assist communities in identifying and accessing the resources necessary for rebuilding their lives and communities. Emergency Relief Relief Over the last eight years, IRD has helped distribute $192 million worth of essential commodities such as pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and supplies, clothing, food, water, hygiene kits, school kits, and blankets to displaced populations and disaster-affected individuals around the world. In emergencies, IRD has a proven capacity to rapidly implement and initiate response activities. In many cases relief responses such as commodities shipments are mobilized while the initial assessment is still underway, so time will not be lost. IRD has in-house expert emergency technical skills and human resources that can plan and initiate response until longer-term teams can take over. In 2005 – for the first time – IRD initiated relief efforts in the United States immediately following the Hurricane Katrina emergency. Our distribution programs also targeted the Caucasus region, the Balkans, and Southeast Asia in the wake of the tsunami, among others. Post-Emergency Recovery and Rehabilitation IRD’s recovery and rehabilitation programs are designed to improve the quality of life for displaced persons, refugees and vulnerable populations by mitigating the effects of conflict and addressing critical needs. Our programs help provide the foundations for long-term development activities, including activities aimed at: increasing livelihood security of vulnerable groups, distributing income generation grants to low-income families, disseminating relevant information to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), and improving water and sanitation facilities in IDP and refugee settlements. Importantly, our programs also focus on resettling IDPs and refugees and supporting these communities with the infrastructure and resources needed to accommodate the returnees. We strive to provide people with the tools needed to rebuild their lives and communities.

KontraS (The Commission for “the Disappeared” and Victims of Violence)

Two years before KontraS (The Commission for “the Disappeared” and Victims of Violence) was founded, the hope for a new society in Indonesia under a democratic system was almost destroyed. In 1996, Indonesia’s authoritarian regime took steps to destroy political aspirations, and muzzle the voices of the so-called “undercurrent” of political opposition. The victims were not only political parties, but also nearly all independent and community-based organizations. NGOs and student movements experienced cooptation and intimidation through increasingly brutal investigations, arrests and detentions. Some were done through “official” channels while others were conducted secretly and arbitrarily.
