US Congress: Special Autonomy vs Independence

October 30, 2010

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 condemns Free West Papua UK for politically motivated campaign

November 29, 2009

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.
