For the past few months, the Indonesian hardcore punk scene has been having very uncomfortable conversations addressing their own issues of misogyny and abuse of women within the scene. An IG account specifically opening up these conversations has been targeted repeatedly by small-minded losers who find the account more troubling than actually confronting the cancerous behavior within their community. To them, the posts are more troubling than making their scenes safe and open to all. The account has been attacked so many times that they’ve had to delete previous accounts and reopen new ones because they believe so strongly in their mission.
If you have an opportunity, and if you too believe in supporting their mission, go hit up their IG account Punkmelawan and keep track of them, they might have to close this account and reopen a new one: https://www.instagram.com/punkmelawan/
