Police attempt to halt Mass Demonstration

JUBI – local and provincial Police stopped demonstrators from continuing on their route to the House of Representatives of Papua building in Jayapura. Motorcycle and other heavily armed police were involved in the operation along the highway. 
 
Units of soldiers from the Indonesian Army (TNI) monitored the demonstration from a distance. However, the mass of protesters appeared in far greater numbers and were overwhelming forces of the police.

Police halted demonstrators in front of the post office in the Abepura
area of the city. Not being not allowed further into Jayapura city, many of the thousands rallied chose to sit in the middle of the road and continue their protest. 
 
As a result, traffic from Kotaraja toward
Abepura was paralysed. Speakers addressed the thousands of protesters demanding the independence of Papua and review of the Act of Free Choice. They also demanded an end to impunity in cases in Papua.
