In 2006, public debate on pornography erupted in Indonesia. The debate centred on the drafting by a parliamentary committee of anti-pornography legislation that proposed to extend control of pornography beyond the media into the realm of public behaviour. The draft then passed from view, and when the public thought it had been shelved, in September 2008 a revised version re-emerged with stronger support from political parties in parliament, and despite renewed protest was endorsed by the House of Representatives on 30 October 2008.
