Bali Ticket Sales Decline from #BoycottBali Campaign

The social media campaign to boycott Bali as a result of its execution of non-violent drug traffickers is picking up steam. Ticket sales are down.

Within days, Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan of the Bali Nine and 9 other drug traffickers will be flown to Nusakambangan Island, put in isolation cells, and within three days, taken to one of the island's two killing fields, tied to a wooden cross and shot.

Military jets, including a squadron of Sukhoi and a Hercules CN-295 military transport airbus, and hundreds of soldiers will be deployed to transfer Andrew and Myuran. [More...]

“There has been a command from the Indonesian military commander to help secure the transfer process of the death row prisoners,” he said. “One squadron of Sukhoi is prepared to escort a Hercules that will bring the death row prisoners. “We have prepared Raiders and Cavalry troops for securing the two death row prisoners, Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan from Kerobokan prison to Ngurah Rai airport.”
