    Background: SIX THOUSAND INDONESIAN REFUGEES FROM THE SOUTHERN MOLUCCAS ISLANDS TOOK PART IN AN ANNUAL PROTEST MARCH THROUGH THE HAGUE TODAY (SATURDAY 25 APRIL).

    THE INDONESIANS SEEK GREATER RECOGNITION OF THEIR HOMELAND AND, MORE SPECIFICALLY, WANT PERMISSION TO ESTABLISH A FREE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH MOLUCCAS.

    A MOUNTED POLICE ESCORT PRECEDED. THE DEMONSTRATORS THROUGH THE INNER STREETS OF THE HAGUE AS THEY MADE THEIR WAY TOWARDS THE PRIME MINISTER'S RESIDENCE WITH A PETITION. THE DEMONSTRATORS MARCHED IN ORDERLY FASHION AND WITHOUT INCIDENT.

    THIS IS THE TWENTIETH SUCCESSIVE YEAR THE ISLANDERS HAVE DEMONSTRATED FOR THIS CAUSE.

    DUTCH PRIME MINISTER PIET DE JONG RECEIVED THE PETITIONERS' SPOKESMAN AT HIS RESIDENCE AND LISTENED TO THE INDONESIAN REQUESTS. LEAVING THE PRIME MINISTER'S RESIDENCE THE LARGE CROWD OF DEMONSTRATORS NEXT MARCHED ON THE INDONESIAN EMBASSY, BUT WERE KEPT AT A DISTANCE BY THE POLICE WHILE THEIR SPOKESMAN AGAIN PLEADED THE CAUSE TO AN OFFICIAL OF THE EMBASSY. THE TWENTIETH ANNUAL MARCH WAS THEN DISBANDED, AND THE LEADERS LEFT BY CAR.
