On Friday, September 18, supporters of the Coalition for Action to Save Indonesia (KAMI) are planning to demonstrate in Magelang (Central Java province) and Tasikmalaya (West Java province) against the government. Reports indicate that activists are denouncing the government's alleged ineffective and non-democratic policies.
