ABM Prepares Protests Opposing President

We no longer trust SBY, we no longer trust the parliament to carry out an impeachment. We do not want this people’s movement to be taken over by the parliament. Essentially, the people do not trust SBY-Boediono or the parliament. – Budi Wardoyo, Aliansi Buruh Menggugat

According to an article from Indowarta translated by the IndoLeft news service, Aliansi Buruh Menggugat is going to mark the end of SBY’s first year in office since re-election with protests around the country.

Besides demonstrating their disappointment in the first year of the SBY’s second term, the protests will also be “rejecting revisions to Law Number 13/2003 on Labour and the privatisation of state-owned industries, demanding the development of the national industry and the nationalisation of mining and gas industries under the control of the people, opposing low wages and calling for free education and healthcare.”
