Police Map Out Anarcho-syndicalism Members after May Day Clash

2 May 2019 12:55 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian National Police (Polri) Chief General Tito Karnavian regretted the fact that the International Workers’ Day, or May Day, that was held in a generally peaceful manner were ruined by the vandalistic actions of Anarcho-syndicalism groups.

The anarchist group, mostly known for their all-black uniform largely vandalized public and private spaces during the rally on Wednesday.

“There is some sort of foreign doctrine in terms of workers’ issues,” said General Tito at the Polri headquarters on Thursday, May 2.

The police chief argues that the anarchy movement is an imported idealism from the international community, such as Russia and a number of European countries before it entered Indonesia a few years back in Yogyakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, and Jakarta.

The Police chief announced that he had ordered police personnel to map out the group’s members following a string of vandalism conducted during several May Day rallies on Wednesday and re-educate the young members joined in the anarchy movement.
