No, this is not a video of protesters marching to Jakarta after President Joko Widodo's re-election
A video has been viewed tens of thousands times in a Facebook post alongside a claim it shows a Muslim group marching to Jakarta to attend a protest following the re-election of President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on May 21, 2019. The claim is false; the footage has circulated online since at least November 2016 in reports about a different protest.
The video was posted here on Facebook on May 19, 2019. It has been viewed more than 21 thousand times and shared more than 490 times.
The video shows a large group of people walking along a road together waving flags. Most of them can be seen wearing traditional Muslim attire.
