Coconuts Jakarta, #HidupMahasiswa! Spirit and creativity of Indonesia’s student protesters shown on social media

"Naturally, photos, videos and memes concerning the protests have flooded Indonesian social media, many under the hashtag #HidupMahasiswa (Long Live the Students) and #ReformasiDikorupsi (Corrupted Reformation), the latter being a reference to Reformasi, or democratic reform following the downfall of Suharto’s autocratic New Order in 1998 (which was also precipitated by mass student protests)." Some creative posters and slogans here.
