November 9, 2010 - President Obama's car passes Greenpeace Indonesia activists bearing the message 'Obama: Cut Emissions Not Forests', during his visit to Jakarta.

The challenge followed the announcement at a press conference in Jakarta with Presidents Obama and Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) that the US will provide only limited funds to help protect Indonesia’s rainforests and carbon-rich peatlands.
