  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Metro Jaya Police has arrested human rights activist Ananda Badudu for raising funds to support the nationwide students protest via KitaBisa crowdfunding platform on September 23-24.

    Ananda’s Twitter account on Friday, September 27, stated that he was picked up by the police for transferring funds for students.

    The KitaBisa crowd fund he made has managed to garner around Rp175 million up to this day.

    The musician and former journalist wrote at the crowdfunding page that he was moved to contribute the college students who are expressing their aspirations and that his intention in making the KitaBisa page was to fund the protesters’ consumption and mobile sound systems used in the protest against the House of Representatives (DPR).
