January 12, 2018 at 12:53 GMT -00:00 · Published

Hundreds of protesters held a rally outside Facebook's offices in Jakarta on Friday, decrying the social media giant's alleged removal of the online accounts of several Islamic groups. Among the protesters included many white-clad members of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI).

In the footage protesters can be seen holding placards and banners denouncing what they describe as discrimination against Muslims by Facebook, and holding speeches outside the Facebook HQ in Jakarta. The online posts were reportedly removed for allegedly spreading hate.

There was a large police presence, and the rally was conducted peacefully.

Cientos de personas participaron este viernes en una manifestación frente a las oficinas de Facebook en Yakarta, denunciando la supuesta eliminación de las cuentas de varios grupos islámicos de la famosa red social. Entre los manifestantes se encontraban muchos miembros del Frente de Defensores Islámicos (FPI), muchos de ellos vestidos de blanco.

En las imágenes se puede ver a los manifestantes sosteniendo pancartas y carteles denunciando lo que describen como discriminación contra los musulmanes por parte de Facebook, y realizando discursos fuera de la sede de la empresa en Yakarta. Según los informes, los mensajes en línea fueron eliminados por presunta propagación del odio.

Hubo una gran presencia policial desplegada en el lugar, y la manifestación se llevó a cabo pacíficamente.
