Indonesia and Australia Security Co-Operation
Human Rights and Democracy are under threat!!!
The signing of the "Framework Agreement for the Promotion of a Strategic Cooperation Partnership in Defense and Security" on 13 November 2006 in Lombok island of Indonesia brings with it the reminder of a similar treaty signed by the Keating government in 1995 when it closed its eyes to human rights abuses in East Timor and other parts of Indonesia. This new agreement again leaves some serious questions regarding any commitment to human rights and democracy in Indonesia.
Indonesian Solidarity is deeply concerned that the security co-cooperation between Indonesia and Australia will not assist military reform in any way. To this end, we would like to invite you to a forum.
John Dowd - the President of the Australian chapter of the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) - will discuss the consequences of the security co-operation for human rights issues.
Senator Kerry Nettle - a senator from the Greens Party - will talk on the issue of Australian government policy regarding this security co-operation, especially related to the co-operation between both nations to develop nuclear power for peaceful purposes.
Dr Clinton Fernandes - Senior Lecturer in Strategic Studies at the University of New South Wales, Australian Defence Force Academy - will discuss the implications of the security co-operation in relation to the role of TNI.
Prof. Peter King - Convenor, West Papua Project, Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Sydney - will address the implications of the security co-operation for West Papua.
Venue: University of Technology Sydney, City Building 6 level 4 room 17, on Harris Street, Design and Architecture Building (DAB) (Peter Johnson Building). Please go to http://www.uts.edu.au/about/mapsdirections/bway.html for map of the city campus.
Date and Time: Tuesday 12 December 2006, from 12.45pm until 3.00pm.
