TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The demonstration against the omnibus law on job creation is planned to take place around the House of Representatives (DPR) building today, August 14, 2020.

The hashtag #JegalOmnibusLaw or Block Omnibus Law widely circulated on Twitter since last night as an invitation for the rally.

- Vehicles from Jalan Gerbang Pemuda bound for Jalan Gatot Subroto would be asked to take a U-turn at Farmasi Flyover to get to Jalan Gerbang Pemuda.

- The traffic from the Inner City Toll Road willing to exit at the Pulo Dua offramp would be directed to go straight towards Tomang Toll Road.

- Vehicles from Jalan Palmerah Timur heading to Jalan Gelora would be rerouted to Jalan Tentara Pelajar.

- The traffic from Jalan Asia Afrika heading to Jalan Gelora would be diverted to the right to Jalan Gebang Pemuda.
