And from today, Indonesians will work to create a better country and nation for themselves, and transcend differences in race, tribe, religion, special interests, social strata, income levels, or political affiliations. Well, maybe not exactly everybody, but the spirit is there.Plis Deh Jakarta endorses #indonesiaunite and the Common Mandate declarated last night at Rolling Stone Live Venue, Kemang, and several other cities.
