Activists rally in front of the U.S. consulate in Bali, Indonesia. They are angry about the ongoing Association of South East Asian Nationals or ASEAN meeting - and the presence of U.S. President Barack Obama there. Urging people to reject capitalism and put the interests of Indonesia first, they say the U.S. should mind its own business. (SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) PROTEST COORDINATOR HENDRY SARAGIH SAYING: "He does not need to come to the summit in Indonesia. He should just take care of his own country, we can see by the Occupy Wall Street movement that the United States has a serious problem concerning capitalism, and he must acknowledge it." Obama is the first U.S. president to take part in the East Asia summit. The ASEAN group comprises 10 member states including China, Australia, India, Japan and Russia. Sunita Rappai, Reuters
