TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta Metro Police Chief Inspector General Fadil Imran suggested that demonstrations staged by workers, students, and other community groups that usually take place in the Arjuna Wijaya Horse Statue area be moved to the National Monument or Monas.

“I’m thinking of moving the protest from Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat to Monas,” said Fadil at the Metro Jaya Police Meeting Hall, Thursday, September 22, 2022.

He said the relocation was aimed at preventing the rally from disrupting the traffic. Monas, he added, could accommodate 5,000 to 6,000 protesters.

The police would provide the facility for people willing to voice their opinions, such as a stage and loudspeakers. “I’ve purchased a sound system with 30,000 watts. The same system was used in Metallica's concert at Wembley Stadium, London. We will also prepare a stage for speeches. So they don't need to bring a command car,” he explained.

He also said the police will prepare a place for media crews. “And we will prepare the internet network for broadcasting it live on YouTube if necessary.”

In addition, if a demonstration is held at Monas, participants can invite parties from the Presidential Staff Office or representatives of the Palace for dialogue. “We will invite them here,” said Fadil Imran.
