Kulon Progo Solidarity Action 2pm Sat 26 June: Indonesian Consulate

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group has endorsed the protest below.

We encourage people to attend and provide support to the Kulon Progo farmers and the Indonesian activists who are supporting them.

Kulon Progo Solidarity Action 2pm-3pm Saturday, 26th June @ The Indonesian Consulate (In Melbourne or your capital city) 72 Queens Rd, Melbourne

The last action was small but according to our counterparts in Kulon Progo, it was effective. It made the news in Indonesia and the police decided to be more 'hands-off' as a result, or so we were told.

We need to keep the pressure up and let the Indonesian government and mining companies like Indo Mines Ltd and PT Jogja Magasa Mining (Indonesia) know that they're being watched and that the locals do not want the mine.

We are hoping that people in other cities take up the call and protest either at the local Indonesian consulate or, if you can, the headquarters of the companies responsible.

In Melbourne the consulate is at 72 Queens Rd, Melbourne which you can get to on public transport by catching a tram down St kilda Rd.
