Indonesian tobacco farmers' smoke-fueled protest

Tobacco farmers smoke cigarettes during a protest against a bill on stricter tobacco control in Jakarta, Indonesia, on July 3, 2012.

Thousands of farmers staged the protest claiming that the bill — which would ban cigarette advertising and sponsorship, prohibit smoking in public, and add graphic images to packaging — would lead to massive job losses, The Associated Press reports. Indonesia is the world's third-largest tobacco consumer.
