Lentera Magazine Edition 3/2015 tells stories about PKI

Hidden history: Lentera, a student magazine published by the Satya Wacana Christian University’s (UKSW) School of Social and Communication Sciences, tells stories of victims of the 1965 killings in Salatiga, Central Java.

The Association of Semarang Communities for Human Rights (PMS-HAM) said on Tuesday it had reported the retraction of Lentera, a student magazine published by the Satya Wacana Christian University’s School of Social and Communication Sciences (UKSW Fiskom), to the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) and the Indonesian Press Council.
“We have sent a letter to Komnas HAM and the Press Council. In principle, we called on the Komnas HAM to review, assess and investigate the police’s measures to withdraw Lentera magazines from circulation,” PMS-HAM coordinator Yunantyo Adi said as quoted bykompas.com on Tuesday.
He was referring to Lentera Magazine Edition 3/2015, entitled “Salatiga Kota Merah" (Salatiga, the Red City), which tells stories about the killing of Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) supporters and suspected members in Salatiga in 1965.
Yunantyo said there had been a forced retraction of Lentera magazines by local police authorities. He said the incident began when several Fiskom students, who managed the Lentera student press institution (FKM Lentera), were requested to come to the Salatiga Police office on Sunday.
Accompanied by Fiskom leaders, they were questioned on matters surrounding the publication of the magazine from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time. Based on the results of the questioning, the police decided that FKM Lentera must retract the magazines.
According to Yunantyo, the major reason for the magazine's retraction was to maintain the stability and security of the society. The retraction was also aimed at preventing any legal problems from “third parties”.
As reported earlier, the publishing of Lentera’s third edition has triggered polemics as it tells stories of victims of human rights violations during the 1965 killings in Salatiga.
The police claimed the magazines were retracted because of their covers, which showed PKI symbols, namely the hammer and sickle.
