Hearings on the issue in Papua in the U.S. Congress which was held on September 22, 2010 was initiated by Eni FH Faleomavaega, chairman of the Subcommittee of the U.S. Congress. The hearing invited leaders of Papua as Octavianus Mote, Nicholas Messet, Henkie Rumbewas, Franzalbert Joku, some scholars such as Eben Kirksey, Pieter Drooglever and others and off course Benny Wenda was not considered as a Papuan leader due to the fact that he is only self-proclaimed leader.
They were invited to give such testimony and statements about the circumstances in Papua. These hearings grew into a new round of international discussions on the Papua issue because the U.S. Congress invited the leaders from both sides the pro-independence Papuan and the pro-special autonomy such as Nicholas Messet and Franzalbert Joku of the Independent Group Supporting the Special Autonomous Region of Papua Of Within The Republic Of Indonesia (IGSSARPRI). The U.S. Congress is doing much better approach than UK Parliament because they can get input of Papua from two sides, which will provide objective data supported by evidence that can be justified.

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.

There are three fundamental problems that should be addressed peacefully in West Papua: crimes against humanity, the failure of New Order’s (Suharto regime) socio-economic and cultural development, and the reconciliation of Papua as land of peace. Democratisation in Indonesia has brought a very successful change in Papua. The majority of Papuan are now supporting the development program implemented under the special autonomy with the support of international community. Papuans are no longer facing marginalisation in their own land. Some would say it is time for a real change.
Addressing these problems is an internal matter for Indonesia’s central government and local government of Papua and West Papua provinces. However, the international community through any international organization such as the UN , NGOs and civil society movements could take part in helping the development in Papua.

Two Papuans out of a group of 43 asylum seekers who fled Indonesia in 2006, triggering a diplomatic row with Australia, have returned home, the foreign affairs ministry said Saturday. Yunus Wainggai and his young daughter Anike were repatriated more than two years after they travelled by boat to northern Australia led by Papuan separatist activist Herman Wainggai.
“There was no force whatsoever in their decision to return home,” foreign affairs ministry spokesman Teuku Faizasyah told AFP. “Yunus felt that he had been cheated by Herman. He was promised some money and a job but they were not realised. Yunus also told us that he missed his home and relatives,” he said. Faizasyah did not elaborate on how Yunus and Herman were related. The father and daughter flew from the Australian city of Canberra to the capital Jakarta through a transit in Denpasar, Bali. “It’s up to them to decide when they want to return to Papua,” Faizasyah said.

How to stop email harassment?
I am on an active wordpress blog, and all of a sudden this one person said things about me and my blog which are not true. This is done thru comments, and another person makes similar harassment comment and is going to file a report to the FBI in the United States and tell them where to find me. I know it’s not true, and I know there is nothing to find, but those scums keep sending spam comments, and it is really annoying. Is there anything that can be done????
Yes, we can rest easy, because people can threaten all they want. People can comment all they want. But, if you have done nothing wrong, nothing should be worried about.
As far as legal action for you to take, you can consult an authority if you wish. But, be prepared for the detail information to win a case of this nature. My experience, it is very effective because finally the email harassment stopped only after I report it to the authority in UK.
The cowards are always afraid because they have done something wrong. In the case of my blog, which tells the world about the objective situation in Papua, some cowards now give up their efforts to stop me from blogging. By the way, be always careful with impersonating email by those cowards so you will not need to make an apology in the future. Thanks God, the truth is always protected from evil acts. Thanks to the UK Police.

No they don’t, harassment seems to escalate every time I post on it. Who are they? yes both stubborn Indonesian military and idiots separatist supporters hate Free West Papua Blog.
My slow internet connection would have rusted all those harassment and intimidation. Took me more than 5 minutes to open onto new post, which actually is a bit faster than usual. I almost lost my cyber ID because someone tried to hack my email and for several days I couldn’t get into my email account, especially after 15th October. Oh God…why do Idiots so evil to me?
Idiots really don’t like this blog.
A very important event in Papua. Much more important than a provocative immoral, irresponsible launch of political opportunist meeting in London.
