After the fall of President Suharto in May 1998, the student movement in Indonesia had to face the military/police repression in their fight for overall reform. Because of the repression and force that they encountered, the student movement itself became more violent, until eventually they challenged the military in the streets. This documentary provides gripping and inspiring eyewitness footage of some of the most dramatic clashes in the student movement history.

be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
