JAKARTA – The police are currently hunting for those who deliberately spread and invite people to hold demonstrations against the policy of the Implementation of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) level 4 in DKI Jakarta. Where, the information and invitations circulated on social media.
“We will look for (information disseminators) later,” said the Head of Public Relations of the Polda Metro Jaya Kombes Yusri Yunus to reporters, Saturday (7/24/2021).
Yusri suspects that the information and the invitation to hold a demonstration against the PPKM level 4 policy circulating on social media are hoaxes or false news. Because, said Yusri, until now there have been no reports of demonstrations against the PPKM level 4 policy in the National Monument (Monas) area.
“Until now there has been no action at all. So there are many hoaxes circulating, but we are still anticipating. Securing the insulation is still running, security at points that we think we have prepared,” explained Yusri.
Yusri hoped that there would be no demonstrations gathering the masses today. This is because the number of positive confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Jakarta is still high. He will also disband humanely if there are still stubborn people who want to hold a demonstration today.
“If there are still stubborn ones, we will be persuasive humanists, we will convey again to avoid crowds, already, sorry for the people of Jakarta who expect the pandemic to end quickly, Covid does not add more,” he said.
For your information, discourse on demonstrations related to the refusal of PPKM has circulated on social media (medsos). The demonstration, entitled ‘Jokowi End Game’, is planned to be held on Saturday (24/7/2021) by conducting a long march from Glodok to the State Palace. Where, the invitation to the action also took advantage of the name of an online motorcycle taxi organization.
Yusri said the online motorcycle taxi, whose name was included in the action plan, had clarified that they did not participate in the demonstration against the PPKM level 4 policy in Jakarta today. Because, said Yusri, they are aware that the number of positive confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Jakarta is high.
“Many flyers are circulating on social media to invite demonstrations in Jakarta. Several organizations such as ojol and other organizations say they are not participating because they are aware that Jakarta has a high number of Covid-19 cases,” he concluded.
