Amidst great enthusiasm, Megawati Sukarnoputri was elected chairperson of the small political party PDI in December 1993. But last June she was ejected from the leadership by military-backed rivals. Many now look to her to lead a democratising movement wider than the PDI. To find out how she felt about this wider role, SAILENDRI recorded this exclusive interview with Megawati in her home.
This year Inside Indonesia commemorates its 30th anniversary. To celebrate this occasion, we are pleased to launch the Inside Indonesia Photography Competition. The competition calls for images that reflect the organisation's broad interest in social, political and environmental issues.
The competition opens April 1.
We aim to raise awareness about the diversity of Indonesian society, and about the struggles of those Indonesians who aim to achieve greater democracy, human rights, gender and racial equality, tolerance and environmental sustainability
