The Yogyakarta Police have prepared 2,000 personnel to secure rallies and events celebrating International Labor Day, or May Day, on Monday.
"We have prepared more than 2,000 personnel for May Day to prevent any disruptions during the celebration," police spokesperson Adj. Sr. Comr. Yulianto said on Sunday as quoted by antaranews.com.
He added that the police in each precinct would focus on securing their own areas.
Yulianto said this year's celebration would include seminars and gymnastics. Workers in Yogyakarta will also march from Abu Bakar Ali Park until Tugu Nol Kilometer.
The police claim no restrictions will be imposed on the festivities so long as they are conducted peacefully.
"We hope no individuals will provoke the workers," he said. (rdi/wit)
