Activists yesterday collected more than 3,500 signatures on a petition for the Indonesian President demanding justice for ethnic Chinese attacked and raped during the May riots. Representatives of nine groups collected $16,000 at the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui. 'Give us back our human rights and justice,' they chanted, displaying photographs and articles about atrocities committed against ethnic Chinese. A spokesman for Joint Action in Condemnation of Sexual Violence Against Ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, Lam Wai-ha, said she had no immediate fears of further riots in the country. However, Ms Lam said she was pessimistic about the future of Indonesian Chinese. 'Three months have passed and the Indonesian Government has not taken any concrete action,' she said. 'All it did was to ramble on with irresponsible talk, such as Indonesians should take the opportunity to start businesses and help develop the economy because the Chinese have left.' Wong Wah-sum, 40, said her parents and eight sisters were living in Medan, one of the areas hit by violence in May. She said the future of Chinese depended on how much international pressure was exerted on the Government. 'Chinese have no political status there, but their nationality is Indonesian. They should be granted all the civil rights equivalent to those enjoyed by natives,' she said. She said that despite the adversities, she believed Chinese would continue to invest in the country. Jenny Liem Giok-tien, 47, who has nearly 50 relatives living in Indonesia, said racial discrimination would never end. 'In the minds of Indonesians, Chinese are always going to be different since we are harder-working and wealthier.'
