Harvest refusal

LBH Jakarta’s public advocate Citra Referandum threatened to hold a bigger rally if his aspirations were not met.

“There are symbolic actions like throwing flowers and we also communicate our position with a huge banner rejecting the RKUHP. This symbolizes that our country is truly democratically dead,” Citra told reporters in front of the DPR building. Monday (5/12) yesterday.

Citra has called on the government and the DPR to immediately revoke the problematic articles in the draft RKUHP. He also stated that he refused to ratify the RKUHP in the foreseeable future.

“The government and the DPR should listen and meaningfully consider public opinion that we are calling for the repeal of problematic articles of the RKUHP, such as the anti-democratic article,” he said.
