On May 12th, students at Jakarta's Trisakti University, many of them the children of the elite, planned to march to parliament to present the government with their demands for reform. The police prevented the students from marching. Some time after 5pm, uniformed men on motorcycles appeared on the flyover which overlooks Trisakti. Shots rang out. Four students were killed.

Several bloggers including Jakartass (Part 2) and Jakarta Kid recall their memories of May 1998 events in Indonesia. If you want to know more about Indonesian history I strongly recommend reading it.

Finally, Indcoup's version.
