Aceh rebels lose the plot, and the war The news that the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) will soon sign a peace agreement with the Indonesian government came as a pleasant surprise to Indonesians who had long wanted to see the bloody conflict there to come to an end. Nevertheless, it also invites curiosity as to why the rebels suddenly agreed to enter into a peace agreement with the government. The secessionist movement, which has been fighting for independence since 1976, had always refused to settle for anything less than a nation separated from the Republic of Indonesia. Over 10,000 people, mostly innocent civilians, have been killed in the conflict.
