The Hidden CIA 1965 Massacre and its Continuing Impact

Beginning on October 1, 1965, the Indonesian military with the full support and participation of the United States CIA, unleashed a ferocious assault on the progressive movement throughout the country. Up to 3 million people were killed—trade unionists, communists, peasant, student and women’s groups organizers and Indonesians of Chinese descent. The 1965 slaughter liquidated the people’s movement for a generation, opened the country to unlimited exploitation by the transnational corporations, and shifted the balance of forces in Asia. What happened in Indonesia 40 years ago holds important lessons for today. Speakers and video excerpts from "Shadow Play: Indonesia’s Year’s of Living Dangerously."
