The International League of Peoples' Struggle hereby conveys warmest greetings
of solidarity to the Front Mahasiswa Nasional on the occasion of its fourth founding
anniversary. We are proud of your being a member-organization of the ILPS and of
your achievements from year to year.
We salute you and join you in the celebration. We congratulate you for all your
successes in arousing, organizing and mobilizing the student masses in the struggle
for their sectoral rights and interests and for the entire people's struggle for national
liberation and democracy against the imperialist powers headed by the US and against
the local reactionaries in Indonesia.
We assume that on this day you will renew your determination to carry forward the
struggle of the students and the people for national and social liberation and that
you will analyze the situation, sum up your experience, know your strengths and
weaknesses and clarify the tasks for raising the fighting spirit and capabilities of your
organization to a new and higher level.
To this day, the people of the world expect that the Indonesian people fight for
and obtain justice for themselves and for all those who were victimized by the 1965-66
massacres which were instigated by the US, British and Dutch imperialists and carried
out by the Suharto fascist military clique.
The Indonesian youth and people continue to suffer from the oppressive and
exploitative conditions of a semi-colonial and semi-feudal society because the
imperialists and the local reactionaries have used state power to suppress by
brute force and deception the people's demands for national and social liberation.
We hope that you will continue to win greater achievements from year to year
through the consolidation and expansion of your organization and through relentless
struggles for your sectoral rights and interests as students and for the people's
national and democratic rights against the foreign and local oppressors and exploiters.
Long live Front Mahasiswa Nasional!
Carry forward the patriotic and progressive cause of the Indonesian students and people!
Long live international solidarity!
