    Protests in Indonesia have entered a second week as demonstrators continue to call on the government to repeal a controversial new Omnibus Law. In one of the latest protests, thousands of demonstrators clashed with police in the capital Jakarta on October 13, 2020. Since protests began on October 6, demonstrators have blocked streets, burned tyres and hurled rocks. More than 6,000 people have been detained during the unrest. Protesters say the legislation, enacted to create jobs by boosting investment, will instead undermine labour rights and weaken environmental protections. Support us:
