AUGUST 19, 2019

A peaceful protest was held in front of Gedung Sate in Bandung, West Java, on Monday to protest the racist and violent treatment of Papuan students by security forces in Semarang, Malang and Surabaya last week. The protesters, members of a Papuan students association, carried posters with the slogans, "Stop Rasis" (Stop Racists) and "Kami Bukan Monyet" (We Are Not Monkeys). Papuan students in Surabaya were called "monkeys" by a crowd who barricaded their dormitory on the weekend. Security forces then fired tear gas into the dormitory to force the students out.
