Indonesia: Money politics vs people's democracy

ZELY ARIANE is the national spokesperson of Political Committee of the Poor, a revolutionary socialist group that organises workers, women, farmers, urban poor and students.

Zely, who is visiting Australia this month from Jakata, will speak on what the Indonesian April parliamentary and July presidential elections reveal about her country's "march to democracy". She will also discuss the challenges facing Indonesia's fractured left in fighting for a "people's democracy" -- one that can meet the needs of its workers and peasants.

Zely is active in the Jakarta based trade union SOLIDARITY ALLIANCE FOR LABOUR STRUGGLE.
She is a leader of the Women's Liberation group Perempuan Mahardika.
