5:24 pm
across the west papuan people also upset about the continued action there and some human rights abuses so much going on right now in indonesia and india how do you explain this this moment where people protested what about one thing but multiple things. i think it's very interesting on how the staff allowed i think this is like a lot of accolades from whatever there's a lot of stuff that has been going on for so many years that nobody like me have been protesting we have been doing a lot of advocacy of sports and you know like when people say like you know peace advocacy efforts we've been doing that for example when we're talking about human rights activist like a phylicia of human rights since 965-9098 we have this protest that is called the sun are we do it every turn a stake on mr estate so we do it every day but been doing that for 600 times more than 600 times and nobody late and the government never respond to that kind of
5:25 pm
issue and we also do a lot of advocacy in terms of a lot of bills like my organization is focusing on the antisexual phylum slot and also the penal code law and we have been like i myself i've been involved with. advocating it sort of the past 3 years and we've been doing a lot of stuff it seems like the government just never less than a like it is not do the things these bills right now which are trying to be pushed through but there have been some resistance particularly from protesters like and what is it about the bills that people are unhappy about is there a change now in the politics into louisiana right just as you contact. the plant is this happening actually because you know they were growing this fashions and the. president and the parliament so it's not only the parliament who really didn't care what you needed. from the president as well so that you.
5:26 pm
were highly regarded but there were really no cool bill or not. the new bill on the anti-corruption commission or what we call a new. coffee and president and these 2 meals there were no such thing as you know public consultancies there was no public discussion. whatsoever and that's why you know people get angry because of that and there were provisions for instance in the criminal sorry indeed in the end type rajan a commission below that will limit sort of the in the band of the seat of the body in investigating corruption cases and also it will you know limit the spatial write off wiretap be odd about even basically getting more action cases and i'll say it will make it far cordie for the commission in recruiting its private investigators so you know get real good and only on the police or authority it is
5:27 pm
a source of our investigators an artifact that knowing they are just out something that i want to bring in some of accuracy as well because they don't want to weigh in on what is happening so we have a commercial rituals an independent body so this is being threatened by new bills on legislation being pushed for an adult who has a protest of right to have some flaws on happening with the. collapse and have a listen to. corruption is serious problem here. but look at our country now. i want government is making you loaded quibbled you for the combating the corruption . that is the company the reasons why we are here what interests you didn't the protester is coming down to the street oh he's imposing dude we are going to correction if the government is actually does something like these distortions where people have to let go of tours to the public institutions. corruptions are
5:28 pm
indications commission is like a hope for us they're trying to bring the only hope left and of course you will let it happen. no i think we have we understand why you were to do something as legislators that might calm your own and to corruption can mess and why would you do that yeah you know because you know why people really support a the anti-corruption body because it's simply the most trusted probably you know institutions in indonesia it's a high you're you know even one hired and. then the president and also of the military so. the power man has to be under an accident a proof you know to be our own account that i read any public consultations whatsoever people get that confused because corruption remains rampant in the region and the fact that when we democratized 20 years ago was you know simply because we believe that corruptions has been deeply entrenched in our
5:29 pm
own people systems and that's why we. knew independent and strong anti-corruption body and that's why you know we remain. i mean we we still need to do to be misleading or to be eradicating corruption in our country sort of that our men and president of the bill that you know well we can debilitate be up against just acceptable for many of us i think that's what i think people are protesting. at this is something as this is a question that we have been asking al jazeera for a little while have a look here my let's help ask them why are there protesting intervals over been covering the story for the last couple of days and then even further than that on saying that question you had to say as well let's be clear the main cause of this process is the dissatisfaction of people especially university students towards recent happenings in indonesia such as i'm writing populist force fighter montana
5:30 pm
and samantha summit there and then also but the straw that broke the camel's back was the approval of 2 controversial. doors noises helped us understand that a little bit more and then from gladys thank you god is for this the protests are covering wide range national problems and it is then summarized to 7 points of protests as people call it the 7 best i can. yes thank you all right boil it down for us 7 points that you want your. government to pay attention to what you listen to. everything is important all of all 7 star us important as any under you know like the points that is in those 7 demons so add in what must be said you know like when we were talking about like the topic be anti-corruption commission bills the new one and then also the penal code what makes people for street it especially myself i am frustrated because it seems like
5:31 pm
the government passed bills and like passed bills that is you know beneficial for them but it's actually not something that the society needs for example the penal code of course we need a new penal code but the efficient itself somehow. a little. bit about the new penal code of course we need a new pinnacle if you know internees or than you would know that it was a dutch colony and so a lot of the reason why this this is a major discussion of your legislation right now is because you want to replace the old clothes in the north and bring in contemporary laws for the relevant into these in society so that is why the it says well we've got to replace the laws that we only have yeah. yeah but somehow the efficiency. there's a lot of articles that for me as of women's activists and like dealing with a lot of issues on sexual harassment somehow there's a lot of articles at some point will criminalize
5:32 pm
a victim of rape and some and then you know in a very contrary ways we are trying to advocate to pass the anti sexual violence bill and it has been sitting on the legislative for the past 3 years so it is something that we urgently need but the government seems to reluctant to pass this bill but like other bills that somehow not been officially for the society and beneficial for the government pass the bill so we cannot see wait we cannot comprehend like what is. actually the urgency of passing all of this you know light non-beneficial. i guess it does seem a little strange that some of the articles of this new legislation that's been put on hold and now is to do with people's personal lives whether they are allowed to be intimate before they get married al they allowed to live together perhaps should they be maybe not the way as
5:33 pm
a whole list of these articles that all shaping society and maybe making society a little bit more conservative jeremy men shake said this comment and he framed it in this way he thinks is the slice presidents influence have a listen have a look one of the most prominent backers legislation is. various presidents modify i mean supporters of human rights minority religions and international were really worried when modifier mean became vice president because of his connection with conservative islamic organizations as well as his ability to co-opt islamic civil society those worries have turned out to be valid with motto i mean in the vice presidential palace we have good reason to worry about the future of democracy in indonesia and india are you way in fest
5:34 pm
no you go 2nd. i totally agree with that because before the protests i think i mean. on behalf of his organization.
