Raided Transsexuals Vent Anger Over Satpol’s ‘Unfair’ Treatment – Dessy Sagita

An Indonesian transsexual organization has criticized the Depok public order agency for failing to prevent dozens of hard-line Islamic activists from charging into a civil rights training session organized by the National Commission for Human Rights on Friday.

“Human rights have been violated here, but instead we were accused of violating the law by conducting an event without permit,” Widodo Budidarmo, of the Indonesian Transsexuals’ Communication Forum (FKWI), said on Sunday.
