OccupyForum Presents. . .
Film: The Black Road -- on the
Front Line of Aceh's War --
the struggle for independence
The 2004 tsunami suddenly turned the isolated Indonesian province of Aceh into a household name. Yet the deeper story of the Acehnese and their long struggle for independence has been untold... until now. The Black Road is the harrowing account told by journalist and activist
Billy Nessen, who was determined to find out the truth and tell the world. Nessen lived for many months with the independence guerrillas, was hunted by the military, and
eventually spent time in jail in Indonesia.
Billy Nessen spoke came to OccupyForum last Monday and spoke about his work,
including his current work with the UC Berkeley students to organize
a campaign for divestment from fossil fuels.
"An extraordinary achievement. One of the most courageous and
unflinching journalistic efforts I can recall."
-- Johnathan Holmes, ABC Four Corners, Australia
