May Day. Jakarta, 2012


Today May 1st, 2012 in Jakarta.  I am going to have meeting at Telkom office Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. It will take about 3-4 hours from Bandung to Jakarta by driving car. I woke up in dawn for bathing and clothing with cold weather because it was rain before. Before taking a shower I had watched news from television that today is Hari Buruh or International Labor Day. The news anchor told that there will be huge demo rally in Jakarta city. Labors from Bandung, Tangerang, Bogor and other cities are attacking National Palace where our president work at. All access road from outer road to down town will be rearrange to avoid traffic jam from crowding people.

We drove car with 4 other people. The car was leaving Bandung at 6 oclock. We get Jakarta Pusat, the region where the office governments are located, at 930. We can see all around the side road are crowded with polices and army forces. Luckily me, because we get at the office before attacking labors don’t arrive yet in the city. But I am not sure that our travelling to Bandung will be as easy as those to Jakarta.
