Chinese Indonesians mark first New Year in reform era
Indonesians of Chinese ancestry celebrate the Lunar New Year
with traditional dancing in Jakarta on Thursday Feb, 18. For many of
them, the New Year being celebrated this year is somewhat different
from those in the past. They hope their culture and right to
celebrate as they wish will be more respected after President B.J.
Habibie revoked policies in force during three decades of rule by
former President Suharto that had discriminated against them and
other ethnic groups in Indonesia.
