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).

Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID)

IID was officially founded in August 1988, two years after the fall of the Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines. Even earlier, the founders – including the incumbent Executive Director — have been deeply involved in the anti-dictatorship struggle and were at that time engaged in generating international support for the cause. The support solicited was essentially political, technical, material and financial and most of these emanated from Western or advanced and developed countries.IID’s progenitors however also realized that the discourse on international solidarity had to be “two-way” and not only focused on getting “wherewithal” assistance for the Philippine social movement, but rather be a throbbing dynamic between two parties, or more so, two or more “peoples”. They believed it should be about support and sharing of each other’s oftentimes common as well as each other’s unique experiences, learning, methodologies and stories. This brand of solidarity—south-south, people-to-people internationalism, was more lasting and is the discourse that IID wanted to develop, practice and propagate not only within the Philippine social movement, but also among partners and takers abroad.

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.
