Indonesian citizens this week protested a proposed new law in that country that would criminalize sex before marriage.

The law would impose a possible one-year prison sentence for anyone who engages in sexual relations outside of marriage. Cohabiting could lead to six months in jail.

It would also make it illegal to insult the president of the country, the national anthem, and the flag.
