After it, the Shinpasa was just like butcher market with blood streaming along the place.
The problem became complicated, after the investigation said that GERWANI(Gerakan Wanita Indonesia) which the group of woman involves n this group was also found out to be one of PKI forming group. Note: until now, there is still unclear about the 7 generals planning upto.

One of the member made a confession in Komisi Nasional Anti kekerasan Perempuan, Mrs. Lestari which is now 77 years and one of the victim 1965 said that many of the members were not just raped but they also torture and damaging their reproduction system. It’s all happen in the jail environment.
