  1. old man with the hat is complaining about the use of military force to suppress protests. Well why not start by NOT destroying public infrastructure and wear a mask? Stop putting the blame on the government when clearly there isn’t any effort from BOTH parties….

  2. Who is pro-omnibus law? Like here!

    FYI, the protest started because of a HOAX circulating around social media, I already knew it was a hoax because it doesn’t make any sense, it says if the omnibus law pass, there’s no day off for Christmas, give birth, etc. It doesn’t make any sense at all, our goverment wont make a ridiciulous law like that.

    When our president make a clarification that it was hoax, there’s less protest.
    How can you go to the street and do a demonstration when you don’t even know the law?

    And the demonstration is not just to protest the law, but the whole legitimate goverment. They don’t even care about the law, if there’s a chance to make the president step down, they’re gonna do it, they make a demonstration to protest a law, to a demonstration to protest the president. They’re ultra conservative islamic right wing group

    And thank god there’s no big protest anymore, because Indonesian are smart

  3. My professor who teaches me regulations and policies said the omnibus law is actually good. The government and people’s representatives f*cked it up, at least at the mechanism of creating the law.

    Suppose that the contents are right. The way they made the law is wrong. There are many steps in making a law. But in reality, they skip so many steps and jump into the approval phase without completing the previous steps.

    And then, the law/policies is made for the sake of the public, the people. Threfore, the law should be made properly by following the procedure. Not following them makes doubt to the law/policy maker, is it really true that they made it purely for the people? Or just the instruction from naughty investors? The actual problem is not the lack of foreign investment, it’s the corruption.

    It’s simple. If the steps are not correct, the law should be invalid. I personally think omnibus law needs even more time to be done than the actual time (this should be years to be done due the steps, but in reality, it only needs less than a year, too short for such a great law)

    Edit: I support the ‘real’ omnibus law, not the currently approved one

  4. Indonesia should do something similar to a senate hearing or congressional court before passing a law. Like whats happening to facebook and twitter CEO. Invite investors for the hearing, also the representative from labour unions, and make the case for the bill. They can broadcast it from State Owned TV Station, and Private Media can mirror the broadcast.

  5. There are lots of indonesians in malaysia, my aunt’s best friend is an indonesian and also considered family. She came to work here at first and then became very close to us. She helped take care of my grandma.

  6. Finally a video about this! I have been waiting on AsianBoss to cover this issue. Indonesia is underrated when it comes to international news. As a second generation overseas Indonesian I always wish the best for Indonesia.

  7. Well if you want to attract foreign investors then you need to make the law appealing for them. Either take it or leave it. The problem is many people want to have the cake and eat it too

  8. Everyone in a black polo shirt agrees, the government has good intentions. It’s so easy for governments to give handouts and appease corporations, these types of catastrophes are great timing, cause you will always have some that think oh yes we must do something radical, forget protecting the people, forget paying them what they have fought for, forget protecting the environment, this is the time to treat everyone like a disposable resource so magical made up job creators can exploit everything and everyone, for the greater good.

  9. This Law mean good, but what kind of good ? … Every law has leniency towards left or right side, in this case, lean toward the people or the business owner. This law is “Good” for the business owner & top management, but “Bad” for the administrators & workers. In other words, this Law promote the old colonialism slavery to the investor.

  10. Foreign investors will most likely buy your land, owning pieces of your country.
    Then outsource labor for whatever companies emerge from foreigners. Especially manufacturing jobs, outsourcing is most likely.

    I’m glad to see their people understand this. That’s what happened to the US. Our manufacturing jobs and other service jobs outsourced to China and other parts of the world. It’s hurt the income of millions and our middle class has shrank. The poverty line in America is so thinly close from middle class now.

    I hope the Indonesian people win their protests. There are many shady things happening and the people suffer from these “good will” disguised dealings.🙏

  11. Hey ASIAN BOSS,you should change your name to ASEAN BOSS cause you are conducting interviews only in south asian countries. Don’t you know that afghanistan,UAE,iraq,saudi arabia,yemen,iran and israel are asian countries.

  12. lol this demonstration that happened during the pandemic is tolerable for many people. but, do you know what just happened in this country? many religious extremists gather at the airport without social distancing when religious figure returned to this country, and what makes it furious is that the gov seems to allow this happened bc they are fear that the religious extremists will hold much worse demonstration like years ago. as if only certain group is above the law. I tell you, don’t come in here, If you still want to visit Indonesia soon I’d consider more safe area like eastern side.

  13. Harusnya sih ga ush ada omnibus law, lebih baik kita meniru bhutan aja, masyarakat bahagia tanpa perlu ada industri. Miskin tp ramai2 kan gak masalah, kita uda biasa miskin. Gaji mau sebesar apapun pasti 1/3 habis buat kontrakan,1/3 buat makan, sisanya kuota/cicilan motor/pacaran. Proses industrialisasi pd akhirnya cuma menguntungkan bapak kos dan warung makan aja.

  14. Misinformation, Disinformation, Hoax, and Ignorance.
    And the results is this, too quick too judge, too quick to respon, too quick to trust unclarified news.

    Kalo ga puas sama undang undang, ya langsung ke MK buat minta diubah dan nanti berdebat disana, nanti soal menang kalahnya belakangan.
    Alasan gw ngomong mending ke MK daripada turun ke jalan ya karena gw lihat ada yang ga pake masker, sedangkan Covid-19 masih ada.

    .

    And btw, kan udah diklarifikasi kan ya…
    Kalo banyak dari keluhan tersebut itu ga bener, dan malah masyarakat banyak yang diuntungkan walaupun ada sedikit minor yang bisa dimengerti.

  15. This law WILL create jobs. It WILL boost the economy. The problem is that this law comes with a heavy sacrifice (e.g. 1 day weekend, no maternity leave ect) and it’s up to the Indonesian people to decide whether it is worth it or not. From the looks of it, the majority of Indonesians are against it and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Life is more than just about chasing economic growth.

  16. Most of the protesters did not know the details of the law. They just joined for the sake of protesting, joining friends. On social media, there were many who openly acknowledged that they received cash for joining the protests

  17. Yang jaket merah (pake kacamata hitam) itu bilang, pemerintah harus menangani covid19 dulu,,, lahhh kesadaran rakyat nya aja susah ngeyel tdk mau mengikuti protokol, teman2 lu yg kiri kanan 2 itu masker aja TIDAK di PAKAI, jangan sedikit2 salahkan pemerintah juga donk, kalo rakyatnya sendiri tidak mau berubah jadi jangan cuma bisa mengkambing hitam kan pemerintah terusss jg, toh diri kalian sendiri aja gak kalian jaga hadehhhhhh cape ngurusin kalian memang.

  18. Geez, we have the same situation about government in Poland – they pass some stupid acts like law against the abortion, so people are protesting, and still, gov cannot handle Covid. I totally understand you and support you, Guys- me, the Polish woman.

  19. This feels like what a lot of countries government do, where they make up some law or make changes to the employment system. It’s always seems the current working class which are helping the economy (even through major incidents/crises) are the ones that are losing there basic employment rights in order to create economy. It doesn’t make sense. Those people in the current workforce are a good example of their communities and country. Why destroy their wellbeing for some scheme Indonesia don’t need foreign investors to boost their economy. The government are undermining the countries ability to become a prosperous country. I personally think a countries foreign owned companies should only represent a quarter of the country. This is to preserve the culture & environment. ❤ from your neighbouring country.🇦🇺

  20. Omnimbus law is laws with 1000 pages. Of course there are bad and good things in it and plus indo goverment has lack of communication. There are so many mislead information among citizen. But I as indonesian worker people,I has a good faith in goverment. This law of course has negative impact for those people who has already worked now BUT in the other hand it is good for people who search for work. It is why the name is job creation law. Why now in the midst of pandemi? Because goverment wants to be ready when this pandemi over. A lot of study said that there will be a lot of money search for the new country for their investment and indonesia will be ready at that time.

  21. Information that you gave to your viewer only based on people opinion, we also know that opinion from group of protesters is untrue. most of their opinion steered from group of people that want to make a chaos in this country. Before you interview please do read all the 900 pages of omnibus law, so you have a knowledge that can be used for interviewing people. i don’t want to judge your interview skill but most information from this video only promote hated speech about Indonesia government. also why didn’t you include information about the fake protesters? did the interviewer even read the news? if yes, why you didnt report it in the video as well? shame on you.

  22. This also happening country like India ,they want to attract foreign investors but the law is so difficult for foreigners to do business here ,so many of them don’t want to do it

  23. As someone who knows nothing about politics, I’ve been always wondering.. does protest bring change on any regulation that have been made? I think it’s better if they stay at home or doing something else to improve themselves. Perhaps that is the better way to help the country to be at peace during this situation.

  24. I think this law is for 90% of Chinese investors and for their elites (CMT aka. China Money Trap)
    Korea, Japan, Europe, the US have no problem with current investment laws …

  25. Semua kebijakan apapun itu akan selalu pro & kontra, ada yang untung dan rugi. Tidak bisa benar2 win win solusion . Dan tidak akan bisa menyenangkan semua pihak secara bersamaan.

  26. WOW. Women in that country take days off because they menstruate? For real? I’m a woman and even I find that absurd. I’m in a high female company, and when you are in a major female company, you tend to sync cycles. Can you imagine an ENTIRE company closing down for that?! It would be catastrophic…

  27. I am sure the interview was conducted a while ago, there were so many updates regarding this matter right now, and there were so many weird things and unprofesionalism that the government did in the past month which led to the mistrust and disbelief of the citizen, even there were not many people are involved in the creation of this law, and even many people in the legislation are opposing the law

  28. The worst year for Indonesia’s middle lower income people or labour in general. The government only thinks about investments and economy, but not the holistic prosperity. As long as the money comes in, they don’t care to whom the money will end up to. Investments that only benefit the already-rich conglomerates. Smh! Yes, the economy may grow IN GENERAL, not individual. The rich gets richer, the poor remains poor AND OPPRESSED!!!

  29. Jesus Christ is coming soon to rapture his people repent and accept him as Lord and savior.

    KJV John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God.

    1 John 1:8-10 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    John 10:27:30 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all, and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

    John 5:22-24 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgement unto the son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    Acts 16:30-31 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

    Titus 3:4-9 But after that the kindness and love of God our savior toward man appeared, Not of works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

    Ephesians 2:8-9 For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

    Romans 10:9-13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth in him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the Lord shall be saved.

    Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

    Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Romans 3:23-24 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    Romans 5:6-11 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for the righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

    Romans 4:5-8 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

    1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto the the Gospel which I preached unto you, which also he have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall be made alive.

    2 Timothy 1:9-10 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

    1Timothy 1:15-16 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me First Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

    John 6:28-40 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Galatians 3:24-29 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    Galatians 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain

    Mathew 5:16-19 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandant’s, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
