About 300 students protested yesterday at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta
shouting anti-Australian slogans. They are blaming Australia for the Bali
bombings, and were apparently also angry about Australian authorities raiding
the homes of Indonesian
citizens living in
Australia. Australia has been accused of ethnic cleansing.
The funny thing is, that when Australians feel they are in danger in
Indonesia, they just leave (and the Indonesians scream about being victims of that). But when
Indonesians living in Australia claim to be in danger, they refuse to leave,
and the Indonesians spew anti-Australian hatred.
The protesters were certainly right about something - Australia and Indonesia
are very different countries.
