#Indonesia: Statement from Catut Anarchist Library about #MayDay Repression in #Bandung

Statement by Catut Anarchist Library about police repression durung May Day 2019 in Bandung, Indonesia.

Originally published by mpalothia.

We are children of workers or laborers who work in factories, offices, warehouses, workshops, restaurants and wherever our parents bow to the employer.

We are school dropouts because we have to help our parents.

We are children who exclude ourselves from school because we refuse to continue the modern wage slavery system.

We are students who work part time, dividing our time between studying and work and are bullied on campus and in the workplace.

We are a generation that is taught how to be slaves and to be turned into ready-made products for industry.

We have to pay expensive tuition fees to be enslaved.

We are prospective workers, replacing our parents who lost their dignity, who feel inferior due to being labeled stupid, working hard under the demands of production, long work hours, low wages and high risk work environments.

We are the future. We have started a new page for a different era. An age without oppression and slavery.

We, are your children.


Solidarity to over 600 of our friends who experienced violence in Bandung.
Nobody is free until everybody is free!
