Indonesia Alerte de sécurité

Additional security deployed in Papua and West Papua provinces ahead of anniversary of founding of separatist Free Papua Movement on December 1; maintain heightened vigilance

TIMEFRAME expected from 28/11/2020, 12h00 until 2/12/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Jakarta). COUNTRY/REGION Papua New Guinea, West Papua

Event

Additional security force personnel have been deployed in Papua and West Papua provinces ahead of the anniversary of the founding of the separatist Free Papua Movement on Tuesday, December 1.

There is a realistic possibility of unrest during related demonstrations, as well as separatist attacks, both during and in the weeks following the anniversary date. The potential for unrest is further exacerbated by the upcoming regional elections on December 9.

A heightened security presence is to be expected in the aforementioned areas. Disruption to transportation and business is likely in the vicinity of any potential protests, and clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.

Context

The Free Papua Movement refers to the independence movement established during 1965 in the West Papuan territory which is currently being administrated by Indonesia as the provinces of Papua and West Papua.

Advice

Those in Indonesia should avoid the vicinity of any large gatherings to avoid incidental violence and police operations. Travelers should monitor local media sources for further information and heed any directives issued by the authorities.
