Dozens of refugees originated from Afghanistan, Sudan and Somalia gathered this morning in front of United Nations’ Refugee Agency to protest the agency’s slow progress in processing their status in Indonesia.

They carried posters expressing their frustration, from “UNHCR do you forget us?”, “Does anyone pay attention to the singles?”, to “I lost 3 years of my life in here without any activity”.
