VOICED AT:

INTRO: THE EXODUS OF ETHNIC CHINESE FROM INDONESIA FOLLOWING THE RIOTING THAT LED FORMER PRESIDENT SUHARTO TO STEP DOWN TOOK AWAY A THRIVING SECTOR OF SOCIETY, BUT ALSO AN ESTIMATED 15 BILLION DOLLARS. AS LISA WEAVER REPORTS FROM JAKARTA, THE CHINESE WHO REMAIN SAY THEY ARE LEFT FEELING VULNERABLE, WITH LITTLE HOPE THE FUTURE WILL BRING MUCH CHANGE.
TEXT: WU YAO YAO IS COMING BACK TO LIVE IN HIS APARTMENT, A MONTH AFTER THE HIGH RISE COMPLEX WHERE HE LIVES WAS PARTIALLY BURNED AND RANSACKED BY ANGRY MOBS.
YAO ACT
(IN ENGLISH) YEAH, IN FACT WE FEEL THAT THIS IS OUR COUNTRY, ONLY A MATTER OF FACT THAT A PART OF THE INDONESIAN PEOPLE, THEY HAVE A NEGATIVE THINKING THAT ALL THE CHINESE ARE RICH, ALL THE CHINESE HAVE A BETTER LIFE THAN THEM, YOU KNOW. I THINK THAT IS WRONG THINKING – NOT ALL THE CHINESE ARE RICH.
END ACT
MANY OF INDONESIA’S WEALTHY CHINESE FLED THE COUNTRY IN THE WAKE OF RIOTING THAT LEFT HUNDREDS OF STORES AND HOMES DESTROYED. MR. WU, LIKE MANY IN THE MIDDLE CLASS, IS STAYING. BUT HE SAYS IF RIOTS BREAK OUT AGAIN, HE WILL MOVE HIS FAMILY TO MALAYSIA OR SINGAPORE.
MR. WU AND HIS NEIGHBORS ARE EAGER TO CONVEY A DEGREE OF NORMALCY IN THE MIDST OF CONTINUED CHAOS. THEY ARE RELUCTANT TO TALK ABOUT THE SUBJECT THAT HITS A SENSITIVE CHORD IN THEIR COMMUNITY – THE ALLEGED SYSTEMATIC RAPES OF HUNDREDS OF CHINESE WOMEN – IN MANY CASES, IN FRONT OF THEIR LOVED ONES.
ANOTHER CHINESE RESIDENT OF JAKARTA, RITONG WIJAYA, SAYS THIS IS AN ISSUE WITH WHICH MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING TROUBLE COMING TO GRIPS.
ACT RITONG WIJAYA IN CHINESE – FADE UNDER TRANSLATION
“THERE WERE A LOT OF RAPES, BUT FEW PEOPLE WHO WILL TALK ABOUT IT,” HE SAYS.
HE INSISTS THERE WERE NO RAPES IN HIS APARTMENT COMPLEX – THE MITRA BAHARI APARTMENTS IN NORTH JAKARTA – AN ASSERTION DISPUTED BY A MANAGER AND OTHER RESIDENTS.
SOME MITRA BAHARI RESIDENTS MOVED TO A NEARBY APARTMENT COMPLEX AFTER THE RIOTS. LIM SHU LIAN SAYS WHEN SHE SAW THE LOWER FLOORS BEING BURNED AND HEARD MOBS BREAKING IN, SHE ESCAPED THROUGH THE BACK OF HER SIXTH STORY APARTMENT. SHE SAYS SHE HEARD ABOUT MASS RAPES, BUT DOES NOT KNOW THE DETAILS.
ACT LIM SHU LIEN IN CHINESE – FADE UNDER TRANSLATION
“IT’S HARD TO SAY. EVERYTHING WAS SO CHAOTIC DURING THE RIOTS – INDONESIA IS CHAOTIC EVEN NOW,” SHE SAYS. “I LIVE HERE, AND I’M AFRAID. IT’S ALREADY HAPPENED ONCE. WHAT ABOUT THE NEXT TIME?”
NADIA FROM KALYNANAMITRA, A WOMENS’ SUPPORT GROUP, SAYS FEAR OF WHAT MAY HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE IS WHAT KEEPS WITNESSES AND VICTIMS SILENT. THE GROUP PLACED SEVERAL RAPE VICTIMS IN SAFE HOUSES AFTER THE RIOTS. SINCE THEN, NADIA SAYS SHE HAS RECEIVED THREATENING PHONE CALLS. A CATHOLIC PRIEST WHO ALSO HELPS RAPE VICTIMS REPORTS RECEIVING A BOX OF DUMMY HAND GRENADES IN THE MAIL.
NADIA ASSERTS THE RAPES, BURNING AND LOOTING WERE NOT RANDOM, BUT WERE ORGANIZED POLITICAL ACTS.
NADIA ACT
THE PATTERN OF HOW THEY ATTACK, HOW THEY BURN, IS THE SAME ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER PLACE. THERE WAS A GROUP OF MALES WHO TRAINED, I DON’T KNOW WITH WHOM, WHO HAVE A TASK TO BURN, TO ATTACK, TO RAPE THE CHINESE COMMUNITY.
END ACT
NADIA SAYS SHE KNOWS OF ONE OF THESE MEN – NOW IN HIDING – WHO SAYS HE WAS TRAINED BY ONE OF THE MILITARY’S SPECIAL FORCES REGIMENTS. ACTIVISTS WANT TO USE HIS TESTIMONY FOR AN INVESTIGATION THEY PLAN TO LAUNCH.
THE CHINESE PLAY AN ACTIVE ROLE IN THE INDONESIAN ECONOMY. TRADITIONALLY MERCHANTS AND BUSINESS OWNERS, THEIR ABSENCE HAS BEEN SORELY FELT. BUSINESSES HAVE SHUT DOWN AND MUCH NEEDED CAPITAL IS BEING DRAINED FROM THE COUNTRY. NOW SOME OF INDONESIA’S POWER ELITE IS TRYING TO LURE CHINESE CAPITAL BACK HOME.
ACT - PROMINENT COMMUNITY FIGURE READING A STATEMENT IN BAHASA INDONESIA
MUSLIM LEADER ABDURRANHAM WAHID RECENTLY JOINED A TOP INDONESIAN CHINESE BUSINESSMAN IN URGING THE SOME 120-THOUSAND ETHNIC CHINESE WHO REMAIN ABROAD TO RETURN.
THE ETHNIC CHINESE BUSINESSMAN, WILLIAM SEORWIDJAYA, FORMER OWNCER OF AN INDONESIAN CAR MANUFACTURER, SAYS IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE RECOVERY OF THE INDONESIAN ECONOMY THEY RETURN.
SEORWIDJAYA ACT
I THINK FOR SURE, WE FOREIGN INVESTORS WHO WOULD LIKE TO INVEST IN INDONESIA WILL ALSO LOOK AT THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE FLEEING AWAY, TO THE SOONER THEY ARE COMING BACK THE BETTER FOR THE ECONOMIC SITUATION.
END ACT
MR. SEORWIDJAYA SAYS THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO REASSURE THE CHINESE THEY CAN COUNT ON PROTECTION. BUT HE ALSO SAYS PART OF THE REASON FOR THE RESENTMENT AGAINST THE CHINESE IS THAT THEY HAVE KEPT THEMSELVES SEPARATE FROM THE REST OF INDONESIAN SOCIETY. THE CHINESE MUST DO THEIR PART, HE SAYS, ADDING IT TAKES TWO HANDS TO CLAP.
IT MAY BE TOO SOON TO TELL WHETHER INDONESIA’S CHINESE COMMUNITY WILL FEEL WELCOMED WITH AN OPEN HAND – OR CONTINUE TO FEEL THREATENED WITH A CLOSED FIST. (SIGNED)

Saudara2 setanah air sekalian.. ga perduli etnis apapun...

Saya adalah orang yang berdarah dingin dan kejam karena masa laluku kelam ditindas orang...

Tetapi membaca blog ini... saya hanya bisa menitikkan air mata tanpa bisa berucap apapun...

Hatiku bertanya: Masih adakah orang yg lebih kejam dari aku ini? Sebiadab itukah dan se terkutuk itukah kalian para pelaku drama ini?

How r u going to responsible this actions to your own ancestors and your descendants later? And to your own Creator?

Ni men hua ren... wo xi wang da jia hao.. Yi lu suen fung..

Submisi J. B. mengatakan...

ini adalah salah satu bukti bahwa Syariat Islam harus segera ditegakan di Indonesia, jika tidak Indonesia Akan hancur oleh preman dan pemerkosa - pemerkosa seperti ini!, tegakan Syariat Islam sekarang juga.
Potong tangan pencuri - pencuri biadab, rajam para pezinah. hukum Mati para pembunuh. maka pemerkosa - pemerkosa biadab seperti ini akan lenyap dengan sendirinya.

Degakan Syariat Islam Tegakan NII

eria mengatakan...

Smoga para pelakunya dpt balasan yg setimpal dan smoga anak cucunya mendapatkan karmanya. Klu perlu si pelaku gila seumur hidup.

Zeygane mengatakan...

betapa mulia nya orng chinese,
biar pun mungkin ada salah satu kluarga ,sodara dan kerabat nya
yg pernah di perkosa tau di bunuh dengan sangat tidak manusiawi,
tetapi mereka tidak pernah berniat membalas
tidak membalas bukan bearti takut
tapi melain kan mereka lbih dewasa bisa berpikir jernih dan panjang dan
ini fakta,bnyak orng pribumi yg sukses karna bantuan orng2 chinese
orng chinese itu pecinta damai,
ingat orng chinese juga udah bnyak mengharum kan bangsa indonsia ,dan patut nya orng pribumi belajar dari mereka.

Zeygane mengatakan...

seifher perang bukan jawaban yg tepat .!!!
jawaban nya adalah
saling mengasihi dan saling intropeksi .
jika perang bener terjadi ,u bayangin aja mau brapa lagi nyawa yg harus di korbanin dan apa yg kita dapatkan dari perang itu .???
yg ada juga kehilangan yg sangat dari kedua pihak..
yg harus kita lakukan yaitu saling mengasihi dan instropeksi
negara kita skrng lagi bnyak krisis ,salah satu nya krisis ekonomi
lbih baek mari kita bergandengan tangan dengan semngat dan senyum membantu membangun tempat tiggal kita ini {indonesia }

Soeharno Honggokoesoemo mengatakan...

Sriwedari
Perkosaan itu dipakai sebagai senjata, lebih tajam daripada pisau, ia merusak jiwa dan badan, yang akan dibawa seumur hidup. Luka pisau akan sembuh, luka perkosaan tidak akan sembuh. Itu dibawa keliang kubur.
