Event

A protest has been scheduled outside of the People's Representative Council (lower house of parliament) in Jakarta on Thursday, July 16. Participants of the protest are set to gather at approximately 12:30 (local time). The demonstration has been organized by the Indonesian Student Executive Board (BEM SI) and is being held to protest the Omnibus bill, which will affect revisions to the labor law.

The event is expected to be well attended and localized traffic disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the protest.

Context

The bill relates to Pancasila (Indonesia's national ideology), and it aims to regulate the values of the Pancasila ideology and the functions of the Agency for Pancasila Ideology Education (BPIP). Those opposing the bill fear it could offer new interpretations of Pancasila that undermine existing elements.

Advice

Individuals in Indonesia are advised to monitor developments, anticipate overland disruption in the vicinity of the demonstration, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
