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.
