A mob led by a pro-independence activist in Indonesia’s south-east has clashed with police and clashed again with some police when the protests failed to turn violent.
Hundreds of marchers marched to the headquarters of the Jakarta prosecutor’s office earlier in the day on Wednesday afternoon.
The demonstration had been scheduled to end at about 10pm.
The protesters in Kuda, Kita, in the south-east have reportedly been protesting against the government’s actions in the conflict between separatists and security forces in the impoverished north.
They are demanding free elections for the region’s parliament in August to be held following a failed 2012 coup.
But the protesters reportedly tried to prevent them from reaching the buil오리엔탈 카지노ding when their demands were ignored.
Pro-government media later published an article with the slogan, “What are they going to do now? Let them run”.
