The 2004 mid-air murder of Munir Said Thalib, one of Indonesia’s most famous human rights activists, continues to haunt Indonesia. In the narrative nonfiction book, We Have Tired of Violence, Matt Easton brings to an international audience the dramatic murder plot and the titanic struggle to bring the perpetrators of Munir’s death to justice. Suciwati, the wife of the late Munir, has just published her account of life with Munir and of the events after his death, titled Mencintai Munir. She writes, “For me, loving Munir is fighting for truth and justice, which my husband fought for tirelessly all of his life.”
