Jakarta – The Indonesian Love Movement led by Ginka Febriyanti Ginting held a discussion with the theme “Knitting Diversity After the 2019 Election” on Wednesday (6/12/2019). In the discussion, the Cinta Indonesia Movement invited all elements of society to return to knit diversity after the 2019 General Election.
The discussion presented various speakers, including former activists in the 1990s from the Barisan Santri Activists and Students, Irwansyah, Chair of Bumi Putera Nusantara, Zainudin Arsyad, and Secretary General of the Association of National Movement, Andre Said.
Apart from the various speakers presented at the discussion program, the Cinta Indonesia Movement also invited hundreds of students from various universities throughout Jakarta.
Ginka Febriyanti said, responding to the situation after the 2019 Election, a number of activists called on students and millennial circles to be able to voice positive power with the aim of uniting a divided nation. Moreover, the split has been felt since the 2019 Election held simultaneously.
“The appeal was also conveyed by activists in this national seminar,” Ginka said. In the seminar, the speakers had the same assessment that the 2019 Election was the biggest and most extraordinary event in the history of the holding of elections in Indonesia.
According to Ginka, it was regrettable that the riots took place on May 21 and 22, even though the election was safe and peaceful. “A number of actions that took place on May 21-22 have hurt elections that were safe and peaceful. The riots that occurred during the May 21-22 action also drew criticism from various groups from community leaders, politicians and activists, “he said.
Seeing such a situation, Ginka reminded again that students and millennials were not easily provoked by provocation, especially those widely disseminated through social media. “After the 2019 Election, the situation is getting hotter precisely because of the proliferation of false news,” Ginka said.
For this reason, he invites all elements of society, especially students, to re-establish the unity and unity of Indonesia. “On the contrary, students and millennials appear as unifying the nation through a positive power movement, which essentially invites the community to reunite despite different choices in the last election,” he said.
