Stop being Racist towards the people of Indonesia!
In EVERY country and culture known to the world, there are good people and bad people, compassionate people and brutal people, and people who are just un-educated or MIS-educated and ignorant.

As Monica has shown {Green Star to you, Monica!}, not ALL Indonesians like or approve of these kinds of shows.
Same as not ALL Japanese, Chinese, Asians, etc., exploit animals and hurt them - there are Animal Rights groups starting to make a presence felt in ALL those countries now.
Yes, in our country, the good ol' USA, we STILL have dog-fighting and cock-fighting "shows", and the laws aren't strong enough to stop it.
And, probably YOUR ancestors whatever countries your families may have come from, may have had bear-baiting or bear-dancing shows, which used to be all over Europe as well as Asia. Or other shows exploiting "wild" animals. Until very, very recently, nobody thought twice about this.

So don't go letting off your anger on a group of people, that includes a VARIETY!
You KNOW this is IRRATIONAL; furthermore, it DOESN'T HELP ONE BIT.
It only ALIENATES people so they are less likely to listen to you and perhaps, become more educated!!!

"monkeys are forced to amuse tourist crowds while their owners walk after them to collect money"

THE WELL-OFF TOURISTS FROM WEALTHY "DEVELOPED" COUNTRIES ARE NOT BLAMELESS!!!!!
This is not unlike the Sex Tourist Trade. The TOURISTS make it pay! and that may be SOMEONE YOU KNOW!

Another factor is of course, the EXTREME POVERTY of Jakarta citizens, which makes them DESPERATE.
This is due to the FAILURE OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY, as it is set up now.

If you REALLY want to stop this sort of thing - introduce Free Birth Control everywhere, STOP the Corporations from SEIZING all the Natural Resources for themselves in the name of PROFIT$$$, and start allocating Resources instead, towards HUMAN NEEDS, NOT the "bottom lines" of greedy CEO's.
