Facebook Responds to FPI`s Demands

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - In response to a rally staged by hardliner Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), Facebook management said: "We allow people to use Facebook to challenge ideas and raise awareness about important issues, but we will remove content that violates our community standards.

"Our community standards prohibit organizations and people to promote hatred and violence against people based on their protected characteristics."

The FPI on Friday, January 12, rallied outside Facebook's Jakarta headquarters over the company's decision to ban their online activities. FPI said Facebook had blocked about 70 of their online groups. They have given Facebook until Monday (local time) to lift the bans.

About 500 members of the group joined the rally on Friday. After the Friday Prayers, the FPI member marched from the Al-Azar Great Mosque down one of Jakarta's main roads, before staging the rally outside Facebook Indonesia office.

Dozens of police and soldiers were on hand to ensure the rally remained peaceful.
