He said the action at the Southwest Monas Silang would be more effective and efficient in terms of personnel deployment and would not interfere with traffic flow.

“There is a police post here, we have a room to prepare. If the destination is for example the palace, later KSP in accordance with the deputy in question, we will summon here,” he added.
Fadil said the proposal had been submitted to DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan. He said he would again communicate with the Acting Governor of DKI regarding the location of the demonstration.
He hoped that the proposal would come true. According to him, expressing opinions is a right, but there are other people’s conveniences that must be considered.
“Maybe now, Pak Anies, there is only one month left, maybe with the next governor, we will discuss more intensely, later with civil society, fellow students and fellow workers, I will also invite mass organizations,” he said.
