Rise of Humanitarian Generation

After darkness, comes light. The shift can trigger an awakening. National Awakening Day is very meaningful at a time when Ibu Pertiwi (the motherland) has been hit hard by the Covid-19 outbreak.

Raden Ajeng Kartini poster painted on the wall of the house on Jalan Halim Perdana Kusuma, Tangerang City, Sunday (12/4/2020). Kartini is known as a pioneer of women's emancipation in Indonesia, especially fighting for the right to education for women. April 21 is celebrated as Kartini Day. Kartini's letters were written in a book "Habis Gelap Terbitlah Terang" (After Darkness comes Light).

After darkness, comes light. The shift can trigger an awakening. National Awakening Day is very meaningful at a time when Ibu Pertiwi (the motherland) has been hit hard by the Covid-19 outbreak.

National Awakening Day 2020 was not marked with a lively celebration as in previous years. The celebration only saw a limited number of participants, all wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Nevertheless, it is precisely because of the current situation that commemorating the historical events of 112 years ago is more relevant than ever.
