hike protest rally

The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) has announced its intention to join protestors rallying against fuel price increases on March 27. A party official claimed that as many as 1 million PDI-P members would join the rally.

“Our party’s stance is crystal clear on this issue. Our representatives in the House of Representatives have been contributing enough to the cause and now it is our turn as party members to join the mass rally to protest the government’s decision to increase fuel prices,” Jeppri Silalahi, the rally’s committee spokesman, said on Sunday as quoted by tribunnews.com.

He said the party was waiting for members from the regions to join the rally. He said PDI-P members would gather at Proklamasi Square before moving to the presidential palace.(dic)
