A rally involving hundreds of university students was held in Jakarta on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2017. The students, who called themselves “Alliance of Indonesian Students Unions”, walked from Arjuna Wiwaha Statue (also known as Patung Kuda) to the State Palace, located less than three kilometers away.
The alliance expressed their objection to the government's decision to increase the prices of fuel, electricity, and licensing fees earlier this year.
Similar rallies were also held in 19 cities across Indonesia, from Padang, Jambi, Bandung, to Gorontalo and Merauke.
