President Jokowi, who ran for election in 2014, never responded positively to Indonesia's transitional justice until 2017, when CIA documents showed that the U.S. government did provide support at that time. Beginning in 2007, every Thursday in front of the Indonesian Presidential Palace, victims and their families of the 1965 September 30 Incident company banner design and the 1988 student movement took black umbrellas and photos of the victims to launch a "Thursday Rally", demanding that the government investigate and disclose the incident. History of human rights violations. But in this year's presidential election, the Indonesian people still have only two choices: Jokowi, who is seeking re-election, and Suharto's son-in-law Prabowo.

She fled for decades and never confronted the perpetrator. It was difficult to say who was right.
