Welcoming the 30th Meeting of WHO SEARO Minister of Health, Forum for Healthy Jogja without Tobacco (Forum Jogja Sehat Tanpa Tembakau or JSTT), initiated a civil society movement of Yogyakarta concerning the promotion of human rights to health. As our participation in the respect, protection and fulfillment of human rights to health, we are calling to you all:

  1. To support the Government of the Republic of Indonesia to ratify the FCTC as a manifestation of a commitment to the promotion of human rights to health
  2. We invite all the parties to refuse the World Tobacco Asia 2012 in Indonesia.

We also inform that concurrently with the 30th Meeting of WHO SEARO Minister of Health, we will hold a peaceful sympathetic action on Laksamana Adisucipto Street in front of the Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel on September 4th to 6th 2012. In this peaceful sympathetic action we will distribute stickers and blue ribbon to people as a part of the ‘Blue Ribbon Campaign’, the WHO protection of passive smoking campaign and also a rejection of the World Tobacco Asia 2012 in Indonesia.
