Thousands held a rally in Jakarta against US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize #Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
 
An estimated 80,000 people from different religious background took part in a rally held on Dec 17 in the state capital of Jakarta to show their support and solidarity with #Palestine.
 
They called on Trump to reverse his decision and threatened to boycott US products.
 
The protest outside the US Embassy was organized by Indonesian Ulema Council, a Muslim cleric organization. Some 2,000 police and military personnel guarded the front of the embassy.
