KENDAL, CENTRAL JAVA, INDONESIA - MAY 04: Eko Soetikno, 75 years old, holds a photo with his fellow inmates when was imprisoned in Buru island at his house on May 04, 2016 in Kendal, Central Java. Eko, was a student, who spent 14 years imprisoned without trial in Buru islands for suspected ties to the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). Survivors of Indonesia's anti-communist massacres in 1965 called for investigations on the country's purges, in which hundreds of thousands of people are believed to have been killed by the Indonesian military when the Cold War was escalating in Southeast Asia. Based on human rights groups, half a million people died in 1965 during a massacre carried out by the military and religious groups after an attempted coup by suspected communists, where an officer-led group kidnapped and executed six generals on the night of Septemeber 30, 1965. Known as one of the worst mass atrocities of the 20th century, many among the dead had no connection to Communism, and hundreds of thousands had been held in dentention centers for years during the period.
