Yogyakarta May Day 2018: March Against Feodalism
Mayday in Yogyakarta loaded with oppression from police and hoodlum from civilian around Yogyakarta, they assume it was the right action to be done against the response because they (the masses of mayday) burn down the 2*2 meter police station near UIN Kalijaga Yogyakarta. Total 69 person arrested, 3 was of them got prison, and the others get released with some conditions. On mayday they push the government and the international to fulfill many demands they talking like decrease the price material for transportation fuel, give proper wages for workers, push away of development of new international airport of Yogyakarta in Temon kulon progo, nullify the sultan and pakuaman monarchy ground, distribute the land to the people, take off the notes of military forces that pushed the people
To be reminded of all above the fulfillment, the anti-fascist group angered about their repression within violence against the people. Demonstration is the face where the true expression became true action of democracy, but they stole it, and do violence against the protesters. That was the expression of the government and the civilian wasn’t to be side with people, that was product where’s they’re traitor against the people voice.
Within burning the 2*2 meter police station was the expression of anger of them because the vgovernment don’t want to hear and act for their aspirations. The violence is the true face of the government, not only in Indonesia but there’s more examples from another country around the world. They do it as a tool that wrapped in the name of stabilization and secure the civilization. they do that to stole the land, make an condemnation of people land, and take down the movement of people. That was the face of the fascism today, they just reform and wrapped to make the people feel safe and love their nationality.
