Great Southeast Asia Proletariats Revolution
The Great Southeast Asia Proletariats Revolution, commonly referred as The Red Dawn or Great Parahyangan Socialist Revolution, was a seizure of state power instrumental in the larger Parahyangan Revolution of 2013. It took place in Bandung Raya dated to 25 until 30 December 2013. Surprisingly, the revolution was occurred without bloodshed.
It followed on the November Revolution of the same year, which overthrew the capitalists and feodalists rule and established a provisional government composed predominantly of former statesmen, including the vicious reactionary General Suhertong. During this time, urban workers began to organize into councils (Soviet) wherein revolutionaries criticized the provisional government and its actions. The Revolution in Bandung Raya overthrew the provisional government and gave the power to the local soviets dominated by the faction of the All-Sundaner Workers Party. Moreover, the local soviets established Revolutionary Council of Sunda Raya. This immediately initiated the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Sunda Raya.
The Great Southeast Asia Proletariats Revolution is the official name of the Great Parahyangan Socialist Revolution in the Democratic Republic of Sunda Raya. It was officially named by a decree issued by the Revolutionary Council of Sunda Raya.
The December Revolution had toppled Yang Dipertuan Agung Parhayangan Nyi Ageng Gunung Bunder II of Sunda, and replaced his government with the Parahyangan Provisional Government. However, the provisional government was weak and riven by internal dissension. It continued to wage the war, which became increasingly unpopular. A nationwide crisis developed in Sunda, affecting social, economic, and political relations.
On the 24 December 2013 Central Committee issued a resolution saying that "a full scale uprising is inevitable, and the time had came". A PKP regional leader led his leftist revolutionaries in an uprising in Batam, the capital of the Governorate of Riau Islands. Two days later, PKP led their forces in the uprising in Bandung Raya (modern day Komune Bandung Raya), the capital of Sunda, against the Suhertong's Provisional Government. The revolt was bloodless, with the Sundanese Red Army led by PKP taking over major government facilities with very little opposition before launching final takeover on the poorly defended Gedung Sate. A week later, the uprising also occurred in several other regions, such as Madura, Cilacap, Cotabato, Palawan, and Sabah. Therefore, the escalating proletariats movement resulted in establishment of soviets in several parts of Southeast Asia.
On 25 February 2014, the First Congress of the Soviets, led by Revolutionary Council of Sunda Raya issued a resolution calling for the consolidation of the soviets and an establishment of the socialist government. Two days later, the congress proclaimed the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Sunda Raya, which later consisted of five federal entities. on 28 February 2014, the First Congress of the Soviets approved the Constitution of Sunda Raya, the integration of the non-sundanese soviets, and the creation of People's Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Sunda Raya.
