The webinar was organized by the SATUPENA Indonesian Writers Association, chaired by Denny JA. The Satupena discussion was guided by Swary Utami Dewi and Karyani Tri Tialani. According to Rosadi, after the conflict slowly began to grow associations or associations. Such as MABM (Majelis Adat Melayu Culture), IKM (Madura Family Association), and other ethnic groups such as Chinese, Bugis. They also do the same.

“These organizations are a means of inter-ethnic dialogue in West Kalimantan. If there are certain events, all the characters are invited. Do not let these inter-ethnic conflicts happen again. Conflict is very painful. When I was a student, there was a conflict. At that time, we couldn't leave the alley,” said Rosadi.

Responding to questions from webinar participants about Singkawang as the most tolerant city in Indonesia, Rosadi said that there used to be conflicts between ethnic Malays and Chinese in the city.

The Malay people demonstrated and protested against the existence of a Dragon statue in the center of Singkawang city, which was erected by ethnic Chinese. But ethnic Chinese still defend the existence of the statue. Dayak ethnic support ethnic Chinese.

"Now the Dragon statue remains strong and has even become a tourism icon in Singkawang," said Rosadi. The Mayor of Singkawang built three separate gates to the statue area, namely gates for Chinese, Dayak and Malay people.

"Alhamdulillah, so far there have been no major conflicts. Even if there is a conflict, it is very easy to localize and reconcile it, "explained Rosadi. This is the government's way of getting the three ethnic groups together. "If we go to Singkawang now, we will feel harmony and the mixing of the ethnic groups," said Rosadi (ma).
