Voice of America report on New York City May Day protests.

Protests were held from coast to coast in major cities including Occupy movement. Turnout was lower than that of other countries because the protests were held on a work day.




Thousands of protestors marched through the capital demanding higher wages and better working conditions.[7] President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono responded by announcing a higher tax-free income ceiling and additional subsidized housing.[7]
