Environmental activists affiliated with the Indonesian General Society Movement (GMBI) plan to hold demonstrations in Jakarta outside the State Electricity Company and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry on Thursday, November 12. Organizers want to denounce the state agencies' perceived environmentally unfriendly policies and claim that more than one thousand demonstrators will gather for demonstrations on Thursday. The start time for the protests remains unclear.
Localized disruptions are likely in central Jakarta as the protest sites are near main roads and buildings in the city, such as the House of Representatives and the National Police Headquarters. A heightened police presence is also expected in the area.
Those in Jakarta are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
