March 23, L'Internationale sera le genre humain! The 25th IUF Congress ended in Geneva with the traditional singing of the working class hymn, "The Internationale" -- delegates sang in their own languages, clenched fists raised.

A federation which formed in September and went through a very difficult dispute only 2 months after it formed, which is Shangri-La Jakarta Case.

And without support and solidarity that each of unions in this room has contributed, this federation could not possibly have survived. When you showed solidarity action toward Shangri-La workers, you could never know that at the same time you were contributing to the development of an independent and democratic icon of union for all of Indonesian workers.
Through this best opportunity, I, on behalf of my members, general council, executive committee and women committee of FSPM would like to convey our gratitude for the solidarity actions, financial support and prayers for the Shangri-La workers.
We thank you most of all for giving us, the hotel and restaurant workers in Indonesia, the opportunity to build a union for the future for our interests. We would especially like to convey our thanks and respect to Bro. Ron Oswald, and to our teacher, friend and comrade in struggle, Bro.
He has given all his time, his thoughts, his life to us, something which our federation will always remember. From the beginning, IUF and 9 local unions in 2 cities had to decide what was the most appropriate strategy for Indonesia, after the country was freed the regime of the Suharto dictatorship in Suharto had been in power for 33 years.
It would have been easy just to affiliate the unions which were already there, which had been created when Suharto was in power. For that reason, IUF decided to take a longer and more difficult road — that is to assist Indonesian workers to organise and build a new federation. The first stage of the orgaising work was to decide: Every plan will never gone through as we expected.
Every one of us has to be able to adapt for whatever possibly happen. In the case of organising hotel workers, our strategic plan was interupted by Shangri-La case. For what, at the end of the day has given us opportunity to show the work of internasionalism and bringing evidence and facts to ensure Indonesian workers of the importance of being part of International Federation such as IUF.
Now, FSPM has growing in a very fast track. Surely, there are a lot of work in every development. There always be a new local union wants to joint FSPM every week or month.
But then we have to work even harder to consolidate the federation, to increase the capacity of secretariat and to expand the level of leadership and every committee in FSPM. Without unions in Sweden, Belgium and Japan.
Only by taking the IUF path, have we had success in our struggles. We ask for the opportunity in the next few years to become, in the future, a federation which is truly strong, independent and democratic as you all would expect. Thank you very much.
