Eastern Jakarta Takes Step Against Big Tobacco

  • As per reports, a row of at least a dozen of houses in eastern Jakarta declared itself a smoke-free zone.

    A protest was held last month by around 200 people, mostly students. It was against an upcoming industry exhibition of cigarette-making machines in Jakarta. As mentioned by a protest organizer, another rally has been planned for next week.

    A few groups have been reportedly pushing back against Big Tobacco in the country.
