Indonesia: Why Are Thousands Protesting the Omnibus Law?

Over the past couple of weeks, tens of thousands of Indonesians, led by students, have taken to the streets and protested against a new law that could potentially affect workers rights, as well as the environment. In some parts of the country, these protests have turned violent and many have been arrested.

On today’s episode of Live & Learn, Dashran has a chat with political analyst Eve Warburton -- who’s also the co-editor 'Democracy in Indonesia: from stagnation to regression’ -- on these important protests, the controversial Omnibus Law that started it all, as well as take a broader look at the political landscape of Indonesia and examine why many Indonesians have been growing increasingly dissatisfied with the political elite, over the past couple of years.
