STATEMENT BY THE PRD ON 17th AUGUST


The New Order regime is engaged in continued attempts to deal a crushing blow at PRD members. The witch-hunt against them is being carried on by its repressive instruments, whose provocative acts are extremely frenzied indeed.

The hunting has also been carried out in university campuses, with those PRD members still having the status of students being the target. Secret agents were present around the Diponegoro University campus. A lot of students were picked to take part in the drive to capture PRD activists. For this purpose para-comando units of the Students' Regiment had been employed The impact of the drive was most tangible at the Faculty of Letters and the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, where there were many PRD members among the students. In another development, the head of the Dipayana University (UNDIP) drove the point home in a circular that if PRD should be declared to have problems (with the government), students with a PRD membership would be expelled dishonourably. Besides, he had called on PRD members among the students to come and surrender . However, the call has hitherto been ignored.

Come what may, we shall continue to stand consistently in the front line of the struggle in defense of the people, no matter the risks. This is an acceptable logical consequence.

EVER ONWARD, NO RETREAT!
A UNITED RESISTANCE, FOR A CHANGE!
A 7000 PAY, A NEW PRESIDENT, A NEW POLITICAL PARTY
WATCH THE GENERAL ELECTION!
