As I was making my way to their studio for our agreed live interview on Indonesian armed forces (TNI) assassinations, I received a call with the news that TV One, the Indonesian national news channel, had canceled my appearance due to pressure from Kopassus....A week ago, METRO TV ended a scheduled half hour interview:
Even though TV One had agreed to interview me alone for 15 to 30 minutes, they decided unilaterally -- without telling me -- that they would only let me on air if the Kopassus commander, Gen. Lodewijk was there to rebut me.
I would have been glad to face and question the General, but the catch was that the General refused to face me.
Within a couple of minutes I was pulled off the air. A producer came on the phone and acknowledged that I had just been "censored."Sign ETAN's petition opposing U.S. training of Kopassus.
