About 30 people protested outside the Indonesian Consulate yesterday, urging Chinese to withdraw their investments from Indonesia and its banks. One representative from the rural communities was so angry that he shouted: 'Castrate the rapists! Castrate the Indonesian rioters!' However, Angela Li York-lan, the Heung Yee Kuk Women and Youth sub-committee chairwoman organising the protest, said it was just a slip of the tongue. 'We do not want to meet violence with violence,' she said. 'Maybe the villager was too angry just now. But we're really very angry about the attacks on Chinese in Indonesia. 'If the Indonesians continued their violent acts, we could not continue to do business with them and will have to withdraw our investments.' The protester later withdrew his words. Demonstrators holding placards and banners earlier petitioned the Foreign Ministry Commission's office, saying Beijing's stance on the issue was not strong and clear enough. It is rare for such pro-mainland groups, such as the Heung Yee Kuk, to challenge Beijing. 'The Indonesian Government has not issued an apology on the incidents yet,' said Ms Li. 'The Chinese Government should summon the consulate in China and strongly condemn the riots. 'There should be an early investigation into the attacks and protection should be given to all Chinese now in Indonesia.' Ms Li said the Kuk had already received more than 2,000 signatures from people condemning the violence in its 27 villages and would send the signatures to the Indonesian Consulate.
