Sandals are becoming the symbol for protest against uneven injustice in Indonesia. Today the 15-year-old goes on trial and thousands of Indonesians have shown their support for the boy accused of stealing a pair of sandals. Full story.
Flip-flops and sandals donated by local people in support of a 15-year-old boy who is being prosecuted for lifting an old pair of sandals, are lined up at a collection point in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, Jan. 4, 2012. Thousands of Indonesians have donated flip-flops and other old sandals in a campaign to show support for the boy who could face up to five years in prison if found guilty, the same sentence given to many terrorists, drug pushers and rapists.
