It is a fabulous idea to have a international collective movement in a
Isolated struggle of Indonesian students' fight against dictatorial
Soeharto regime could have been enormously boosted if there was an
International Student Organisation existed and backed behind them.Soeharto
would have had no chance.Likewise Ne Win and Deng Shiao Ping in 1988 and
Imagine all student of the world who are dare ,honest and free from bias
get together can be the biggest and most powerful organisation on
earth.Much bigger than Ben-Hur.It can be powerful enough to influence
various government of the world.For an instant It can pronounce sanction
against sons and daughters of world dictators studying at any school
including private ones or universities in any part of the world.Also there
a lot more we can do and think about to do if we are together and organised
as a whole.
Now we need to find a way how to do to form an International Student
There are a few suggestions-
1.Contact existing student organisations in respective countries and
discuss your ideas on forming and benefits of having International Student
2.Well prepared yourself before go on talking and believe that your doing
it for happy future of mankind.
3.For a start ,request for their support to be put immediately on internet
media and others international media organisations on present Indonesian
students' fight against pathetic Soeharto regime.
4.Suggest to contact regional student organisations and discuss the ideas
5.Keep communication lines open to any other student organisations.
6.Work in a serious manner to achieve the goal.
7. We will do the same in Australia as well.
