Syahrul Hidayat, Palembang – Student activists from the Indonesian Muslim Students Action Front (KAMMI) held an action to commemorate the second year of the administration of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) and Vice President Boediono at the Air Mancur traffic circle in the South Sumatra city of Palembang on Thursday October 20.
During the protest they said that Yudhoyono and Boediono had failed to lead Indonesia. They also held a theatrical action in which a student wore a rope around his neck made from rambutan fruits with the word SBY on it representing the political parties in Indonesia.
Although the action attracted the attention of drivers passing the Air Mancur traffic circle it did not disrupt the flow of traffic. Security personnel meanwhile maintained watch throughout the peaceful action.
