Two Cops Wounded, But Jakarta Fanatics Dispersed!


After we warned of traffic chaos in Jakarta due to the fanatics antics on Friday..

Fanatic’s Fans To Cause Jakarta Traffic Hell Again? 

…our prophetic powers were proven yet again, but I was far away in the south of the city, having a nice late lunch with two nice people…

….in a very pleasant resto I’d not visited before.

Meanwhile, up by the Horse Statue ( actually of the legendary hero Arjuna)..

…two cops were injured by thugs wielding ‘sharp weapons,’ but their colleagues managed to arrest ‘a number of people.’

Traffic was of course seriously disrupted, but eventually, the fanatics slithered off home. 
 began to disperse.

Needless to say, their main demand, that Rizieq the Fanatic be released, went unfulfilled.

The ‘Grand Imam’ of the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ is still securely held in police detention, and will remain so, until next year – not as long as it sounds, yeah?

PA 212 will have a large demonstration at the Presidential Palace, Friday (18/12/2020).

As one of my commenters advised me, that ANAK banner refers not to ‘Children’ but to the Anti-Communist National Alliance.

As a lifelong anti-communist, I find it mildly embarrassing that these people use such a term, especially when the government of President Jokowi is about as far from being communist as can be!

As for real children, I am looking at an article in a local newspaper, about how some very unwholesome ‘teachers’ are trying to use their classrooms as indoctrination centres.

More on this next week.
