Maryadi, Jakarta – Jakarta never seems to be free from protest actions. Not a day goes by without demonstrations, including today, Friday December 14.
According to the Metro Jaya Regional Police Traffic Management Centre (TMC), there will be three separate protest actions today. Drivers are therefore warned to avoid these locations in order that they don’t get caught in traffic.
Based on information from the Sat Intelkam, the protest actions will start at 9am local time at the State-owned Electricity Company office on Jl. Trunojoyo in South Jakarta. There will be around 100 protesters at the action.
At around the same time, Student Solidarity for the Wishes of the People (Somasi) from Cerebon, West Java will be holding a demonstration at the national police headquarters, also on Jl. Trunojoyo. Around 25 protesters are expected to attend.
Following this, there will be a protest action at the Attorney General’s Office on Jl. Sisingamangaraja in South Jakarta by around 100 people from the Bank Indonesia Liquidity Support Scandal People’s Challenge Alliance (ARMS-BLBI).
