  • Description

    DESPITE THE BAN ON STUDENT DEMONSTRATIONS IN INDONESIA, SOME 5,000 STUDENTS DEMONSTRATED OUTSIDE THE FOREIGN MINISTRY IN DJAKARTA ON THURSDAY. THEY WERE MEMBERS OF THE INDONESIAN ACTION COMMAND (K.A.P.P.I), WHICH IS AN AFFILIATE OF THE OUTLAWED POWERFUL ANTI-COMMUNIST UNIVERSITY STUDENTS COMMAND (KAMI). THE PREVIOUS DAY, THE STUDENTS HAD PARADED THROUGH DJAKARTA STREETS.

    INDONESIAN TROOPS WITH FIXED BAYONETS GUARDED THE FOREIGN MINISTRY. THE STUDENTS CALLED FOR THE RESIGNATION OF THE FOREIGN MINISTER, DR. SUBANDRIO, AND SHOUTED "SUBANDRIO PEKING DOG" AND "HANG SUBANDRIO". THE TROOPS DISPERSED THE STUDENTS WHEN THEY TRIED TO ENTER THE BUILDING.

    SEVERAL CARS PARKED NEAR THE GOVERNMENT OFFICE BECAME THE TARGET OF THE STUDENTS. ARMED WITH CHALK, THEY SCRIBBLED ANTI-SUBANDRIO SLOGANS ON THEM. MORE SLOGANS WERE ALSO WRITTEN ON THE WALL OF THE BUILDING, INCLUDING THE MAIN DOORS. TO SHOW THEIR UNITY, SOME STUDENTS ALLOWED SLOGANS TO BE WRITTEN ON THEIR TROUSERS.

    THE UNIVERSITY OF INDONESIA, WHICH HAS BEEN CLOSED DOWN BY PRESIDENT SUKARNO, WAS THE SCENE OF AN ANTI-SUBANDRIO DEMONSTRATION ON WEDNESDAY. STUDENTS OF KAPPI AND KAMI JOINED FORCES AND HANGED THE EFFIGY OF DR. SUBANDRIO. THE EFFIGY BORE THE TITLE "DURNA PEKING" (MISCHIEF-MAKER FROM PEKING). THEY THEN BOARDED TRUCKS AND, SHOUTING ANTI-SUBANDRIO AND PRO-ARMY SLOGANS, DROVE THROUGH A RESIDENTIAL AREA WHERE MANY CABINET MINISTERS HAVE THEIR HOMES.
