United States

Protests were held from coast to coast in major cities including New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.[2][3] Protests were often organized by Occupy movement. Turnout was lower than that of other countries because the protests were held on a work day.[citation needed]




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]
