Activists plan to rally outside Kendari's Southeast Sulawesi Regional Police headquarters on Saturday, September 26, to mark the anniversary of the death of two students. The deaths were allegedly caused by security officers during a rally on the same day in 2019 and protesters are demanding further investigations into the incident. Hundreds are expected to attend the protest.
A heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport are to be expected in the vicinity of the demonstrations.
Those in Kendari are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
