Tribal rights advocates and rainforest defenders are using community mapmaking to protect ancestral land
"Community mapmaking has been a successful tool to show the government that we are here, and that we want to protect our lands," says Rukka Sombolinggi, a spokeswoman for the Indigenous Peoples' Alliance of the Archipelago (Aman), a Jakarta-based secretariat representing more than 2,000 communities
Human rights are still in crisis in the archipelago. Despite some modest gains in reforming the military and police over the past decade, human rights violations continue daily in West Papua and elsewhere. Past crimes committed in Timor-Leste, Indonesia and elsewhere in the archipelago continue to go unpunished, with those responsible enjoying important positions. Several are prominent candidates for Indonesia's highest office, including Prabowo, who has formed his own political party and is a leading contender for president. General Wiranto, indicted in Timor for his role as head of the military in 1999, is also planning a presidential run. We doubt they'll be very happy if you donate to ETAN.

An infamous Labor rivalry is reignited with the release of cabinet records from 1986 and 1987.
Indonesia relations a concern in the 1980s
The government's foreign priorities included China, Japan and Indonesia. Historian Jim Stokes has pored through the secret documents on Indonesia, and says negative attitudes and suspicion on both sides were fuelled by media reporting, human rights concerns and East Timor.
"Cabinet agreed that Australia should seek a sound relationship with Indonesia at all levels but avoid making such a disproportionate effort that Indonesia assumed the onus for a successful relationship rested mainly on Australia," he said.
Mr Hawke says cabinet recognised the importance of improving ties with Australia's neighbour.
"I always knew it was not going to be easy to establish a warm intimate relationship with Indonesia because there was such a difference between our political and cultural environments," he said. "It was obvious then that Indonesia was going to become one of the world's biggest economies and that we should have good relations with them."
Australia also imposed new sanctions on South Africa.
The 1998 Semanggi Tragedy — a deadly clash between university students and soldiers — is one of the experiences that shaped the life of Bona Sigalingging, currently the spokesman for the embattled GKI Yasmin church in Bogor.

He uses Twitter, @bonasays, and Facebook to spread his message about the case to the media, to other people and to the rest of the world.
This paper describes an analog chat network in Bandung, Indonesia known as 'interkom.' Interkom is a network that links together the homes, food stalls and farms of a segment of Bandung's urban and peri-urban underclass. Interkom is interesting because it provides the occasion for users to reflect upon and manipulate the material and ideological conditions that shape experiences of self, talk and sociality in a densely mediated world. Interviews with users reveal that interkom constitutes a public that straddles the line between an indefinite community of strangers and a known audience. In playing with this public, users also play with an image of ideal sociality
