In the wake of the Mesuji and Bima incidents, thousands of farmers within the Joint Secretariat of the Restoration of the Rights of the People of Indonesia are planning to conduct massive rallies today in a number of cities, namely Jakarta and other provinces in Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Bali, Southeast Nusa, Maluku and four areas outside of Indonesia, according to Investor Daily.

The goal of the rallies is urging the government to immediately deal with the increasing number of violent land grabbing cases.

A rally in front of the House of Representative building Thursday turned into riot when a group of protesters destroyed the front gate. (eaz)
