This article aims to analyze the legal framework of freedom of association in post formation of Law No. 2 of 2017 and Law No. 2 of 2017 on the right to assembly in Indonesia. It is claimed that a number of Civil Society Organization (CSOs) threaten the Indonesian government. Those organizations carry out activities which are contrary to the values of the Pancasila and the mandate of the constitution. This article addresses that revocation of Civil Society Organization is not a violation of human rights, especially the freedom of association and assembly. CSOs must comply with the law and state ideology, Pancasila, as Ground Norm and the 1945 Indonesian Constitution. Those CSOs have carried out acts of hostility including words, statements, attitudes or aspirations verbally which create hatred both towards certain groups and against those who fall into the state administration. Those activities potentially cause social conflict between community members leading to chaotic conditions that are difficult to prevent and overcome by law enforcement officials. Therefore, freedom must be limited.
