Friends of the Earth is concerned about the arrest of the regional director of WALHI (FoE Indonesia) South Sumatra by the South Sumatra Regional Police on January 29, 2013.
We believe that the arrest and persecution of Anwar Sadat is linked to efforts to assist peasants by WALHI Sumatera Selatan in Betung village, Distric Lubuk Keliat, Ogan Ilir regency, South Sumatra Province. A number of peasants questioned the arrest and the persecution of some peasants, including mosque vandalism by Police, on January 25, 2013

Friends of the Earth strongly supports the call of the Yolngu Nations Assembly and urges the Senate not to pass the Federal Government’s Stronger Futures legislation.
“By attempting to impose the Stronger Futures legislation, which will effectively extend the NT intervention by a decade, the Australian Government is ignoring Indigenous rights to be self-determining,” said Dr Alyssa Vass, Friends of the Earth spokesperson.
