Free Ahok

Last night we attended one of the many rallies around the world in support of former Jakarta governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama. We were in Utrecht, but there were also gatherings in other Dutch cities like Amsterdam, The Hague, Groningen and Ede.

Ahok was recently sent to jail for two years, charged with insulting Islam. Since then people came together in places all over the world, in support of Ahok and to express their love and concern for Indonesia.
