ON DECEMBER 4, 1976, THROUGH a 'Declaration of Independence' Dr. Tgk Hasan M. di Tiro founded The Free Acheh (GAM), and he is the formal president of Acheh/Sumatra National Liberation Front (ASNLF).

STATEMENT  

GAM emerged in Achenese community due to a systematic suffering from a reality that unworthy to live in. Human rights violations for more than ten years under the power of Indonesia dictators; during the course of which thousands of lives have been lost.

Wing-female GAM military, known Pasukan Inong Balee, has been the front line of this movement. GAM, which claims to have a 100,000-strong guerrilla army, has been seeking restoration of the independence of Acheh from the tottering and eternally corrupt governments of Indonesia.

Now GAM has gained more sympathizers, more Achenese find themselves are getting courageous to make a change in their lives by looking their realities differently and fight for freedom and self-worth.
