But prior to this year’s commemoration is scheduled to be centered at Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Jimbaran, and attended by Australian Prime Minister (PM) Julia Gillard, the victims of 2005 Bali bombing also organized similar activities every October 1.
As we recognize the incident occurred on October 1, 2005. It was similar as the previous terrorist acts resulting in loss of life and trauma for the surviving victims of the incident.
The victims of the second Bali bombing called for six peace message addressed to all elements of society, including the government’s efforts to deter acts of terrorism which are still spreading in the country.
The message for peace was read out by six representatives of families victims and survivors on the seventh anniversary of the second Bali bombings, in Jimbaran, Badung regency.
In addition, the victims called on any group of people who want to commit terror acts to cancel their interest regarded the negative impact of the inhumane action.
