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
