Couple days ago, Data, a member of CAGI* and a friend of mine, forwarded some troublesome news from Aceh. And today, a number of CAGI members have also circulated the true-but-sad facts in Aceh.

Thank God Iqbal (of Kontras Aceh) is still alive!

I'm really tired... in the midst of preparing tsunami relief fundraising I felt my frustration of what's going on now in Aceh and Indonesia. It's very heart-rending seeing the catastrophic images on TV but at the same time reading what Alwi Shihab** said when he visited Aceh. "... no starvation in Aceh."

CAGI* : Canadian Advocacy Group on Indonesia.
Alwi Shihab** is the current Indonesia's Coordinating Minister for People's Welfare
