“It is my fervent wish that future generations uphold the principles of political freedoms, peace and anti-militarism”

(London, 18 June 2020)

Ninety-five years ago today Carmel Brickman was born in London, later taking her Indonesian husband's last name to become Carmel Budiardjo. Having been an activist since a young age as a student, she carried on to set up TAPOL in 1973 on her release as a political prisoner in Indonesia. TAPOL carries on her legacy. 

Happy birthday, Carmel!
