When I read an article on Morning Star Online, I almost jump from my chair. What the f**k!!! The so called leader of Free West Papua, Benny Wenda who involved in a huge corruption scandal tried to show the world that he did something for West Papua struggle for independence. What he did? He called for ordinary Indonesians to be “the voice of the voiceless” West Papuan.
Without Wenda’s call, Chairman of Indonesian People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) Bambang Soesatyo considered that the demands of the Public Prosecutor (JPU) to the seven Papuan criminals at the Balikpapan District Court were shocking and did not fulfill the element of justice.
Wenda hailed success in the recent trial of political prisoners who could be freed within weeks after being sentenced to 11 months instead of the 17 years demanded by prosecutors. The fact is that this is the success of Indonesian domestic pressure and has nothing to do with Wenda’s activity in UK.
Benny Wenda did nothing by claiming and jumping into the trends in Indonesia’s Papua and West Papua issues. When many other activists and students were demanding justice for West Papua, he di nothing. According to KS (our informant in Free West Papua Oxford), Mr. Wenda finally showed up in an event of BlackLivesMatter in London just to be known that he shared the concern and used the event to serve his interest. What a crappy leader!!!
Similar to Benny Wenda’s case of killing two policemen and burning houses many years ago, he defended his comrades by neglecting the justice for the families of at least 30 people who were killed in violent clashes instigated by Free West Papua Campaign.
We need everybody to show the same support for All Lives Matter, Indonesian Lives Matter, Papuan Lives Matter, and also for Black Lives Matter. If Mr Wenda believe in all lives matter, he should asked for apology to family of the deceased policemen that killed during the demonstration led by Mr. Wenda. He also should show his remorse and repent for his past mistake by ending his adventure of provoking conflict in West Papua.
In addition to Mr. Wenda’s nonsense of appeal, he asked Indonesian for help but killing innocent Indonesian by leading the West Papua Army killing machine. How could he imagine that people will live peacefully, side by side if he continue provoking violent conflict in West Papua.
Through a referendum called the Act of Free Choice in 1969, the people of West Papua once and for all reaffirmed that West Papua is an irrevocable part of Indonesia. a decision recognized by the United Nations and the international community. Indonesia is the legal successor to all territories called the Netherlands East Indies, including Papua and West Papua Provinces.
