Some policemen were injured because they were hit by stones. One of them was the head of Banten Police Operations Bureau Police Commissioner (Kombes) Amiludin Roemtaat who was wounded on the forehead.

“This is so usual. A stone was thrown at me during the protest,” Roemtaat told journalists while showing his wound.

“We arrested some protestors. [I tell my team] not to hit them. And stones were thrown at me, instead,” Roemtaat added.

One of the protestors who is known as Arman said the new omnibus law on job creation must be revoked because it does not support labor.

“The omnibus law on job creation is dangerous for the people and all of us in the future,” said Arman in his speech.

The House of Representatives voted on Monday to pass the job creation bill into law which aims to improve the investment climate in Indonesia despite labor unions were against it.
