JAKARTA, 30th SEPTEMBER - Thousands of Indonesian students have returned to the streets today to protest against a new law which they deem void of the work of the national anti-corruption agency. The marches also led to clashes with the police.
The authorities blocked the roads leading to the parliament building in Jakarta where the Chamber was meeting for its last session before the end of its mandate. In the evening we witnessed incidents involving students and law enforcement, with the first to throw stones while the police tried to disperse the crowd. There were also burning tires and Molotov cocktails and paper bombs. The riot police responded with tear gas and water cannons.
