An estimated 80,000 people protested in capital Jakarta for the 10th straight day today over US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The people, wearing white robes and carrying banners reading ‘Indonesia unites for Palestine’, rallied in Jakarta in protests organised by the country’s top Muslim clerical body.

The rally was organized by the top Islamic authority the Indonesian Ulema Council and supported by the government as well as several other Islamic organizations.

The Muslim clerics have also called on Indonesians to stop buying American products until the US revokes its move.

Police said, the crowd marched peacefully to the US Embassy adding that 20,000 police and military personnel were deployed to ensure security.

This was the biggest protest in Indonesia since Mr Trump’s controversial move to reverse decades of US policy.

Police said 80,000 protesters gathered at the National Monument, a tower that looms over central Jakarta, waving the Palestine flag and banners reading “Free Palestine” as they chanted “God is greatest!”

“This is my solidarity as a Muslim to my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine… the Al-Aqsa mosque, a historical mosque for Muslims, is there (in Jerusalem),” said Hermawati, from Bogor, West Java.
