Tobacco farmers display a giant homemade cigarette during a protest against a bill on stricter tobacco control in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Thousands of farmers staged the protest claiming that the bill that would ban cigarette advertising and sponsorship, prohibit smoking in public, and add graphic images to packaging would lead to massive losses of job that would affect thousands of tobacco farmers and their families in Indonesia, the world's third-largest tobacco consumer.
