Jakarta Today

NPR's Mary Kay Magistad talks with Linda about the Indonesian army's actions today. The military has ordered student protestors to vacate the Parliament building that the students have occupied for the last six days. Despite former president Suharto's resignation and the appointment of B-J Habibie in his place, students are still calling for change: specifically, they are demanding new elections for a truly democratic government.
