This early December 2009, less then 5 papuans and several British citizens gathered in Westminster to demonstrate a small disturbance to the peaceful development of Papua and West Papua provinces. Read the rest of this entry »
West Papua Review (WPR) has denounced Free West Papua Campaign UK (FWPC-UK) after FWPC set up several hidden agenda to create conflict in Papua, especially by provoking Papuan people in Papua and West Papua to incite open conflict among people and local government.
A politically and economically motivated campaign that would undermined the credibility of FWPC will be held on the 1st of December. Although FWPC is only a little local disturbance in London, but Papuan could not tolerate its cruel intention of sacrificing ordinary people while they enjoy the benefit.
Do we ever wonder, how is the accountability of FWPC ? Do they report the money they receive for selling their campaign? Why do the pictures and films of their greedy faces are every where on the internet? Is it to get more money?
Please do not listen to the lies of FWPC, please be careful and be cautious with whatever they say, check and cross check to the authorities in Papua and West Papua.
Benny Wenda, West Papuan criminal who killed a policeman several years ago, self claimed leader of West Papuan, and a small number of West Papuans living in Netherland demonstrated opposite the Netherlands Embassy in London, to mark their protest against the New York Agreement, 15 August 1962.

The Republic of West Papua is a separatist-proposed state lead by Benny Wenda that would give empty hope to the people of Western New Guinea (the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua).
The Republic of West Papua was never declared even during the period of the withdrawal of the Dutch in 1963, but the act of free choice decided by West Papuan leaders to integrate to Indonesia Read the rest of this entry »
Who gets to benefit from the bloody higher tension in Papua and West Papua provinces? Should independent investigation be allowed for upholding justice to its very roots? The issue will be debated in a long process of disclosure, and there is no guarantee that the result could determine whether Indonesian military and the Papua Freedom Movement will confess their crimes.
What to expect ? I am tired of seeing both sides Indonesian Military and Papua Freedom Movement taking benefits of the conflict. Both sides are very clever and cunning in generating public opinions and defending each position to get more benefits in the future. None of them care about human rights.

From the bottom of my heart I would say the opinion below is very important to be read. For many years I share similar feeling when it comes to mysteries in West Papua. That is why the foundation of my perspective is that both sides Indonesian security and Free Papua Movement are close friends. While most of ordinary Papuan people (about 1.5 million) dan ordinary non-Papuan people (about 2 million) are victims.

As Indonesia’s easternmost province thousands of kilometers away from the nation’s capital Jakarta, Papua is a land full of mystery that baffles but attracts many outsiders. The thick and dense tropical rainforest that covers most of the rugged and mountainous province hides not only many secrets but also inexplicable events.
One of these unfortunately is a series of tragic fatal incidents. The death of three people in a shootout near the giant gold and copper mining operation in Timika at the weekend is another event which, going by history, will thicken the mysterious cloud above Papua. Read the rest of this entry »
Indonesia is known throughout the world as an ethnic melting pot. This is something we should take pride in, not be embarrassed or angered about. Despite our history of segregation and racial and religious intolerance during the New Order era, we are the most diverse country on the planet. I don’t think it is any accident that after 1998 reform we are also the most successful country on the planet either.
People like Benny Wenda and Richard Samuelson want to divide our great country into ethnic groups with special rights and privileges. If we are to move forward as a nation, towards a greater good, we need to leave these fools in the dust bins of history.
There is, unfortunately, a select group who will continue to promote racial intolerance and hatred in West Papua such as Free West Papua Campaign (FWPC) in UK. By dividing Melanesian and Indonesian, Benny Wenda makes a high tension among people who live in West Papua. There are about 300 ethnic groups in West Papua, more than 2 millions Melanesian formed by 250 tribes and 1 millions mixed Papuan and other ethnic groups, and 1 millions people migrate from about 50 different ethnic groups live harmoniously in the peaceful land of Papua.
This is however another thing that makes Indonesia great, the freedom to be a “jackass” if you want to be. Please be careful with the intention of Benny Wenda’s racism

It is very interesting how the benefits of conflict may also take on different forms as follow:
- Economic profits
- Political power
- Psychological pleasure
A trustful sources from Oxford shared a shocking information about how Benny Wenda took a lot of benefits from false story about conflict in West Papua. Read the rest of this entry »
The current Indonesian government has done a very good job in advancing democracy and human rights. However, we should also understand that in the country face of some very difficult challenges. But regardless of how difficult the challenges facing the Indonesian administration are, the stark fact still remains that there are human rights abuses continuing to be inflicted on West Papuans by some in the Indonesian military.
One of the victims of human rights abuses is Benny Wenda and his family who become asylum seekers in UK. It is understandable that Benny wenda was hurt so bad by Indonesian security aparatus. But who didn’t get hurt in the militaristic government of Indonesia before the reform era? Most Indonesian were lived underpressure, many of which suffered human rights abuses. But now change has come, I would say, Indonesia for about ten years 1998-2008 is under the era of transition to fully democratic. The transition by the reform program is reaching the possible peak that Indonesia could touch. Read the rest of this entry »

I will support Benny Wenda if Indonesia still held the military and autocratic New Order system. But since 1998, a big change happened in Indonesia and all Indonesian can speak freely and openly to the world about everything. Indonesian press is also one of the freest in the world today. My only reaction to Benny Wenda campaign in UK is that please stop telling lies to British people. I will suggest Benny Wenda to go home and see the development in Papua by his own eyes.

Mr Wenda who claimed himself as the great leader of West Papua made another super claim as the voice of 250 tribe.
He said that West Papua is Western Half of the New Guinea Island North of Australia, Home of Birth of paradise, but today home of Military. Indonesia Military & Police committed crime humanity in West Papua, everyday killing, rape, intimidation, torturing, and Imprisonment. He also mentioned that when West Papuan People made a peaceful demonstration, Indonesia Military and Police always came and stopped the demonstrator and arrest them, torture them put them in the prison very long time without any trial. Please check yourself by visiting Papua and you will find the peaceful land of Papua without any condition that Benny has accused in his speech at every corner of the United Kingdom.
Benny the great leader of West Papua is a Liar. He lies with his heart and never really think about the progress in West Papua.
Indonesia is a democratic country, and you have to prove it by seeing it directly with your eyes and not from what Benny has said so.
Why should smart people in UK believe what Benny said without crosscheck to reliable sources and if possible just see it with your own eyes.
West Papuan people need your help to see the situation in reality and not lies.
Here is the photo of UK smart people who listen and believe in a liar talks without crosscheck.
It is normal for both democratic Indonesia and the United Kingdom to see exiles from West Papua demonstrated in Reading Festival to instigate a packed audience that included the mayor and mayoress about their fight for separating Papua province from Indonesia. South East MEP Dr Caroline Lucas, leader of the Green Party, also spoke at the meeting on October 17, 2008. Read the rest of this entry »
Richard Samuelson, Aspen Hendrickson, Rupert Thornhedge or whoever his nickname is not man enough to own his shit. He will not smartly confront my blog with his smears and lies and innuendo. He uses many nicknames in the internet. He will not come out and talk about the peaceful dialog for the shake of us, he has to be asked. That is why he goes to places like Greece for fancy holidays, so he can be asked. What a coincidence.
Richard Samuelson, Aspen Hendrickson, or Rupert Thornhedge is the same person a coward.
Richard Samuelson would rather hide behind his Master Benny Wenda and Maria than say it himself.
Richard Samuelson would rather hide behind many other names than writing a logic argument in his own blog.
He would rather produce 2 to 10 minutes you tube ads that his campaign will never pay to air anywhere, and hope that the tire-swinging media will bring up the topic so he doesn’t have to do it himself.
Richard Samuelson just wants to throw shit out side and inside the House of Parliament, and “raise questions” about something that he doesn’t even understand, and hope his supporters connect the dots, because he is too much of a coward to directly push this toxic stew. He would rather hide behind dignitaries of UK Parliamentarians, surrogates, and scummy Free West Papua websites staffed with shit.
Richard Samuelson is a coward.
A very important comment was made by Nicholas Messet on Friday last week (9/5/2008). He said that a bunch of people named Free West Papua stand outside Indonesian Embassy in London (May 1st) was only for tourist attraction.
Nick Messet was an ex member of Organisasi Papua Merdeka (OPM) / Free Papua Organisation. He was formally return to Indonesia and claimed Indonesian citizenship.
January 22nd, 2008 was the first time in the year of 2008 Amnesty Exeter (Exeter Amnesty International Group) invites West Papua separatist leaders, Mr Benny Wenda & Mr Richard Samuelson. Mr. Benny Wenda who is Papuan gives talk about Human Right Issue in West Papua. He says Human Right violation in West Papua is committed by Indonesia Military toward West Papuan Peoples. Those propaganda was an old stories that Mr. Wenda keep echoing in UK. He also says that there is no freedom at all, and only killing, torture, imprisonment and intimidation. so we need international attention and keep an eye on the West Papuan Peoples. In contrast, the real situation in West Papua Indonesia is far from Mr. Wenda propaganda, that is a new democratic atmosphere is gradually developed. Read the rest of this entry »
