  • Description

    MORE THAN FIVE-THOUSAND UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DEFIED THE INDONESIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, DOCTOR SUBANDRIO, WHEN THEY HELD A DEMONSTRATION AGAINST HIM IN DJAKARTA ON TUESDAY. THE STUDENTS ERE OBJECTING TO A SPEECH BY THE FOREIGN MINISTER IN WHICH HE SAID THEIR EARLIER DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST INFLATION COULD BE EXPLOITED BY PEOPLE ANXIOUS TO SEE PRESIDENT SUKARNO ??? OVERTHROWN.

    STUDENT DEMONSTRATIONS IN DJAKARTA HAVE CONTINUED FOR NEARLY A WEEK.

    YESTERDAY THEY MARCHED TO DOCTOR SUBANDRIO'S OFFICE AND DEMANDED HE WITHDRAW HIS REMARKS ABOUT THEIR EARLIER DEMONSTRATIONS. AND DESPITE THEIR DEFIANCE OF AN ORDER FORBIDDING DEMONSTRATIONS, NONE OF THE STUDENTS WAS ARRESTED.

    DOCTOR SUBANDRIO AGREED TO MEET A DEPUTATION FROM THE STUDENTS, AND LATER, IN A SPEECH TO THE DEMONSTRATORS OUTSIDE HIS OFFICE, HE SAID HIS SPEECH SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT.

    WHILE DOCTOR SUBANDRIO WAS MEETING THE DEMONSTRATORS, PRESIDENT SUKARNO WAS MEETING ANOTHER STUDENT DEPUTATION WHICH ASKED HIM TO FORM A NEW CABINET WITH 'HEALTHY AND REALISTIC' ECONOMIC POLICIES.
