Indonesians living in Amsterdam rallied on May 14, 2017 to show their solidarity with former Jakarta governor
Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama who was imprisoned last week for two years
on charges of insulting Islam. Indonesian politics has been shaken by the
jailing of Ahok, a Christian of Chinese ethnicity, which is seen by many
as a threat to freedom of speech, minority rights and a historically
tolerant form of Islam in Southeast Asia’s largest democracy. Thousands of Indonesians had rallied in several cities around the world.
