Protests against Sri Mulyani and Boediono

Demonstrations against Vice President Boediono and Finance Minster Sri Mulyani Indrawati and how they handled the Century Bank bailout.

Demonstrations are colorful, have a bit of carnival in it and often involve Rp 15,000 - 25,000 (± $2) for each paid protester.
Funny or just outright stupid?
It seems that there is quite some money behind such demonstrations. Maybe the Indonesian way of panem et circenses.

No idea how U.S. President Barak Obama got involved in the Century Bank bailout...
