In Mappi, the demonstration took place in front of the Regional Civil Service Agency (BKD) of Mappi turned violent, as 800 demonstrators went on a rampage, damaging the office. The demonstrators rejected the result of the civil servant recruitment process. “The protesters entered the office and continued to destroy some properties. They demanded that civil servant positions in the region should only be filled by native Papuans,” a witness stated.  A total of 5.000 job seekers in the district had applied for civil servant positions, but only 400 were accepted.
