The International People's Tribunal on the 1965 Crimes Against Humanity in Indonesia concluded that the propaganda campaign that the army waged against the PKI amounted to persecution through propaganda as a crime against humanity. In this lecture, Wieirnga will outline the elements of the propaganda campaign, its religious, nationalist and sexual components, as well as its mechanics. Special attention will be given to the campaign against the women's movement Gerwani, the first sexual moral panic.Though the campaign was unprecedented, it fed on earlier tensions in society. This lecture spans the period of the first nationalist uprisings in 1926 till the present time, when a new sexual moral panic is created, this time focusing on the LGBT community.
