You all know how much the people of Aceh have suffered from the earthquake and tsunami of 26 December 2004. As of 30 December 2004, the death toll in Aceh is estimated at 80,000 lives lost. Yet, in the midst of this suffering, the breaking news from international media yesterday and today is that Indonesian armed forces are continuing their military operations in Aceh. Rather than helping the people, in a number of areas, the troops are intimidating villagers, scaring them away from their villages and then looting their homes, and in several cases, killing alleged separatists who are not armed.

If you are concerned about this situation where more abuses and hardships are being inflicted on a population that is already suffering, please sign the petition 'Stop all military operations in Aceh!', which has been placed online Here
