Historian J.J. Rizal, right, and members of the Depok History Community protest outside the campus of the University of Indonesia (UI) in West Java on Friday (02/02) against plans to demolish the historical Rumah Cimanggis to make way for the development of the International Islamic University of Indonesia. The protest coincided with a visit by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo to the UI campus. The house was built in 1775 by Petrus Albertus van der Parra, the 29th governor general of the Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC), for Adriana Johanna Bake, whom he married two years after the death of his first wife.
