UNPAR Indonesia 2013 – Day 3 – Lecture and Movie Discussion

Here come the latest news from the International Conference on Global Citizenship in Bandung, Indonesia.

Day number 3 was full of surprises and wonderful events.

1) First of all, I had the pleasure to attend a very educative lecture given by Major Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, on the Indonesian efforts and the role of the Indonesian army to tackle terrorism.

Before entering the lecture, I could testify the huge excitement of the local participants who rushed in the front row of the lecture hall and listened carefully to everything he was saying. At the end of the lecture, I approached one of the student of Parahyangan University and asked the reason behind this enthusiasm. She explained me with joy in her eyes that Major Yudhoyono that the Indonesian President´s son!

2. Secondly, all the participants of the Global Terrorism Program watched a controversial movie: “Promised Paradise” by Leonard Retel Helmrich, which was banned for a while by the Indonesian government. The discussion afterwards was as fascinating as the rest of the day.
