Indonesia: Attempts To Intimidate Labor And Environmental Activists In North Sumatra

On February 10-12, 1992, workers in the Medan [North Sumatra] Canning Company, which cans fish, went on strike. The strike was successful, and wages were raised after labor and management agreed on a settlement with the Ministry of Manpower. After the settlement, however, on February 16, five women involved in the strike were taken by the district military command (KODIM 0201) and held overnight.
