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.

Asylum seekers back in Papua
Nethy Dharma Somba, The Jakarta Post, Merauke
Two Papuans who sought asylum in Australia in 2006 have returned
to their hometowns, claiming they did not get what had been
promised before they left.
Hana Gobay, from Merauke, and Yubel Kareni, from Serui, were
part of a group of 43 Papuans who crossed the sea on a boat to
Australia on Jan. 13, 2006, claiming they had been oppressed and
were thus seeking asylum. Read the rest of this entry »

News Update from RNZI

A delegation of politicians from Indonesia’s Papua province has been to Jakarta to further pressure the central government to help improve Special Autonomy in their region.
The Jakarta post reports that Papua legislature members, led by chief councilor Jimmy Demianus, held separate meetings with the House of Representatives and Regional Representative Council leadership.
Many Papuans believe Special Autonomy, established in 2001, has failed to address problems such as human rights violations, natural resource management, health, poverty and security.
Mr Demianus has warned that Papua’s problems will become more complex if Jakarta did not improve the implementation of Special Autonomy.
He blamed Jakarta for the stagnation of special autonomy in Papua and neighbouring West Papua province, saying they can’t properly implement autonomy without technical and operational guidance from central government.
Recently, Papua Governor Barnabas Suebu admitted that despite huge special autonomy funds being allocated over the last seven years, most Papuans remain poor and uneducated.
He said that most of the funds have been used to finance bureaucracy.

Do Papua needs special envoy to improve Papua’s international image? please think about this idea for the future of Papua.
A delegation of politicians from the Papua region has called on the Indonesian President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, to appoint a special envoy to improve Papua’s international image.
The chief councillor from West Papua, Jimmy Demianus Ijie, who led the delegation, has told the Jakarta Post that a special envoy is needed to counter the campaign that gives an impression human rights abuses continue in Papua.
He claimed the campaign against Papua was related to Indonesia’s efforts to bar the American Samoan member of the US Congress, Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin, from viciting Papua in July last year, and the failure of special autonomy in the region.

From the bottom of my heart I should salut to Mr. Neles Tebay for his objective analysis on the decision of Indonesia’s government to ban a book entitled “The Sinking of the Melanesian race: The Unitary State of Indonesia’s Political Struggle in West Papua”, written by young author Papuan Sendius Wonda which was announced on Dec. 14 last year.

What is happening right now to my people in West Papua is showing the world the true democracy where people can rely on the strength of their words to actualise ideas they have. Indonesia uses the peaceful force of democracy, development, free election and harmony.
So now, when things are turning in favour of freedom and justice in West Papua (with visits by the US Congressman Faleomavaega and the EU and UN Human Rights envoys), Indonesia openly shows the to international community that democracy is the right medicine for West Papua. However Organisasi Papua Merdeka (OPM) and its Army Teror Wings are always turning to the only way it knows: violence and Terror. Read the rest of this entry »

Freedom in West Papua refers to people’s desire for concrete improvements in West Papuan life; everything from ordinary dream of peace to respect for indigenous traditions and tangible improvements in health, welfare and education.
