Wiji Thukul, A Conspiracy of Silence

In 1996, poet and activist Wiji Thukul bid his wife goodbye and disappeared for good. Prior to Suharto’s step-down in 1998, arrests, abductions,  detention and torture of activists increased. But while some were later freed, others like Thukul never came back.

With so many victims still missing and no one held accountable for the atrocities, this special edition reminds us that the culture of impunity is alive and well. The case of Wiji Thukul illustrates just how far we still have to go to reach the ideal of a true democracy.
