Rights group Peaceful Yogyakarta Solidarity Forum have denounced the recent attempt by Islamic organizations and police personnel to forcefully disband Lady Fast 2016, an art event held by female artist group Kolektif Betina at Survive Garage, Yogyakarta.

At a press conference in Yogyakarta on Monday, the forum, which comprises artists, NGO activists and journalists, called on the State to protect the right of Indonesian citizens to express themselves.

“We condemn all forms of violence and intimidation which lead to the death of freedom to expression,” said Anang Nasichudin, representing Peaceful Yogyakarta Solidarity Forum during the press conference held at the Legal Aid Institute (LBH) Yogyakarta on Monday.
