Abstract

The emergence of militant leftist groups in Indonesia, a topic still taboo by academia, law enforcement, and policy officials, is an ongoing trend. Packaged into labor and communal struggles, the New Leftist groups are on a trajectory of violence. Blanqui, Marx, and South American militant leftist groups are enjoying a renaissance in pursuit of a new revolution in Indonesia.

Keywords: militants, militancy, anarchism, Blanqui, fundamental socialism, neo-communism, terrorism
