Detailed discussion of the Colonial Period

At the beginning of the arrival of Europeans in Indonesia, the people welcomed them kindly because it was a character that was strongly attached to the archipelago. Unfortunately, the Europeans soon became greedy and intended to monopolize trade in the east.

All the ways they do, including terrible ways that torment the people. All people's land was confiscated, those who then worked on their own land were considered only laborers who worked on colonist's land, so they had to pay taxes or hand over their crops by force. In addition, many indigenous peoples are forced to work without adequate compensation.
