Canadians Concerned about Ethnic Violence in Indonesia

  • CACCEVI
  • Collection
  • 1998

CCEVI was formed in Toronto in the wake of violence against ethnic Chinese in Indonesia. It organized annual awareness events, especially among Chinese-Indonesian church networks in Toronto, and support for refugee claimants, while advocating for Canada to centre human rights in relations with Indonesia.

  • January, 1999

Titled, Canadians Concerned about Ethnic Violence in Indonesia, this position paper was created in January, 1999. It provides first a brief description of CCEVI. Then it discusses “The Historical Context of Anti-Chinese Discrimination and Violence” focusing on three components: “Pre-Suharto,” “The Suharto Years” and “Anti-Chinese Violence.” After, it presents “The Events of Mid-May, 1998” with sub-sections “The Riots” and “The Rapes”. Finally, it provides both “Recent Developments and CCEVI’s Recommendation to the Canadian Government” and “CCEVI’s Recommendations” – four courses of action that it argues the Canadian government could take to help re-establish stability in Indonesia.
