Papoea’s demonstreren voor onafhankelijkheid

Papuan protesters, with their bodies and faces painted displaying the banned Morning Star flag, shout at a rally marking the 50th anniversary of the region's claim to independence in eastern Indonesia's restive region of Papua, at a demonstration in Jakarta on December 1, 2011. On December 1, 1961, Papuans first raised the Morning Star flag and sang a new national anthem after being granted freedom from more than 130 years of Dutch colonial rule. Displaying separatist symbols such as the Morning Star is considered an act of treason in Indonesia under the criminal code and several perpetrators are serving 20-year jail terms for the offence.
