Totalitarianism, authoritarianism, militarism and racism are the “isms” that have traditionally been the opponents of legal aid workers. These “isms” contradict the values of democracy and supremacy of just law and human rights. Many legal aid workers and activists often confront agents or actors behind these “isms”. In this context, the activists of the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation (LBH) struggled together with civil society organizations in fighting the “New Order” led by then President Soeharto, who represented the authoritarian government in Indonesia.
