Jakarta, Indonesia A coalition of Indonesian social movements marched in Jakarta today as part of the International Global Day of Action coordinated. Members of workers organisations, fisher folks, peasants and others, gathered at 2pm at the Indosat building (Jl Thamrin) and marched peacefully to the Presidential Palace asking for an « Indonesia without neoliberalism ». People are oppressed by current economic policies that put land, water and sea under the control of transnational companies and that undermine workers rights. Protesters raised key national issues such as the new investment law, import and liberalisation of food products, labour law, global warming and debt. The demonstration was organised by « Gerak Lawan », the Indonesian movement against nelocolonialism and neoliberalism that brings together workers, farmers, women, fisherfolks, students, anti-debt and environmental organisations. The Indonesian Peasants Union (SPI), member of the international movement La Via Campesina actively took part in this action.
