JFF's Futuristic Motions to Restart 2012 Debate Season
Varsity debating will go full swing again in Indonesia from today with the 2012 Just For Fun debates at Universitas Indonesia's Depok campus. Futuristic motions will be used to wake up the competition from more than a month of slumber prompted by Ramadan and college holidays. Organizers have revealed 48 debaters from strong institutions, including the reigning national champion Sabarudin Adinugroho (Binus) and the current leader of the DOTY list Rifan Ibu Rahman (ITB), would take part in this British Parliamentary debate. Many of the pairs are composites, some represent their schools, one combines two-time ALSA UI winner Dennys Kapa (UI) with the best Indonesian speaker in the last WSDC, Cheryl Cosslett (SMA 1 Bogor), but all use unique team names that range from Maneater to Drug Dealer Conspiracy. Finals will take place on Sunday.
