Indonesia celebrates the 72nd anniversary of its independence this year, amid a rising tide of religious conservatism, volatile political showdowns, and continued persecution of minorities. A seasoned journalist, a shoe designer turned activist, a senior government official, a beloved poet, and one of the nation’s first female Muslim comedians share their hopes for the future of a republic founded on respect towards religious tolerance and multiculturalism.

Indonesia merayakan 72 tahun hari kemerdekaannya tahun ini, di tengah naiknya arus konservatisme agama, bentrokan politik yang bergejolak, dan penganiayaan terus berlanjut terhadap kelompok minoritas. Seorang jurnalis berpengalaman, seorang perancang sepatu yang beralih menjadi Pegiat, seorang pejabat pemerintah senior, seorang Penyair terkasih, dan salah satu komedian wanita pertama Muslim negeri ini akan berbagi harapan mereka untuk masa depan sebuah Republik yang didirikan atas penghormatan terhadap toleransi dan beragaman agama.
