"Indonesia, hosting President Barack Obama and other world leaders this week, has earned praise for democratic reforms achieved since longtime dictator Suharto was ousted a decade ago. But a man serving 15 years in prison for raising a flag wants the dignitaries to know the nation still has a long way to go. In remote corners of the archipelago, dozens of demonstrators have been killed in recent months, and anti-government activists are thrown in jail for peacefully expressing their views."
