JAKARTA - Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Ahmad Riza Patria asked mass organizations (Ormas) in Jakarta to carry out productive activities for the benefit of the community in the aftermath of the Pancasila Youth demonstration which turned into chaos due to the beating of middle-ranking police officers.
Riza reminded that the actions of mass organizations resulted in conflicts and physical contact with each other, even using sharp weapons, which of course was not justified and against the law.
"Therefore, we ask all organizations in Jakarta to carry out productive activities for the development of Jakarta, be productive for the benefit of the younger generation, and especially for the benefit of the community at large," said Riza at City Hall, Thursday, November 26.
Moreover, Riza said, currently Jakarta is battling the COVID-19 pandemic so it is hoped that all parties will come down to help play a role in solving this pandemic.
Riza added that his party did not prohibit demonstrations from being carried out by mass organizations, but he asked that demonstrations be carried out in an orderly manner without any confusion.
"All our friends from mass organizations in Jakarta, we thank you for distributing basic necessities, administering vaccines, making donations, thank you for all of that. Demonstrations are allowed, but please organize them properly, regularly, there should be no anarchy, let alone beatings," continued Riza.
Previously, Pemuda Pancasila held a demonstration in front of the DPR/MPR building on Jalan Gatot Subroto, Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta, Thursday, November 25.
The masses demanded an apology from the Deputy Chairman of Commission II of the DPR RI, Junimart Girsang, who urged the Ministry of Home Affairs (Kemendagri) to immediately bring order to a number of community organizations (ormas), including Pemuda Pancasila, which are often involved in clashes and disturbing the public.
This was the aftermath of clashes between mass organizations involving PP and the Betawi Rempug Forum (FBR) in Ciledug, Tangerang City.
However, during the action, several members of Pemuda Pancasila ganged up and beat mid-level police officers during a demonstration.
As a result of the incident, 21 people were arrested in connection with the demonstration, including 15 people who were named suspects and detained for carrying sharp weapons.
Then one person with the initials RC was named as a suspect in the beating of the Head of Ops Ditlantas Polda Metro Jaya AKBP Dermawan Karosekali.
