Free Papua Movement (OPM) founder Nicholas Jouwe, on Thursday, said that Papua Merdeka is only a dream.
Papua will never be independent, because it has been independent in the frame of the Republic of Indonesia.
Nicholas Jouwe was fighting for Papuan independency in the U.N. in 1960s.
Nicholas Jouwe returned to Indonesia for good in 2009.
He will stay in Papua and spend the rest of his life there.
“I shall return to Papua, because I am an Indonesian,” said Nicholas Jouwe.
He gets a lot of information on Papua development.
He admitted that Papua is much more progress than 40 years ago. People were living in stone-age then. Now, it is modern life in Papua.
