New Mandala: “Jokowi forges a tool of repression”

On July 10, Indonesia’s President Jokowi signed a decree that allows for the banning of civil society organizations. Usman Hamid, director of Amnesty International Indonesia, and Liam Gammon, a PhD student at Australian National University, argue that with this decree "Jokowi has placed the legal existence of every NGO and civic organization in Indonesia at the mercy of a unilateral executive decision.”
