On Tuesday in Indonesia's capitol Jarkarta, people are participating in the march against discrimination. Disabled people make up about 15 percent of the Indonesian population. The march is raising awareness and helping the National Coalition for Disability Organizations push for the Indonesian parliament to pass a law preventing discrimination for the disabled.
