      I have strong associations with indonesia, but nowhere should this treatment be tolerated. Arrested? Well it's your law. Beaten up? Never. Shame on you for tolerating this treatment of your own people.

      Not only are human rights being brazenly breached but these men are fellow environmental activists and deserve the support of the ecocentric community. After all how many of us remain?

      Activists are important - they should be welcomed, not persecuted.
