This blog has been launched many years ago as a campaign against violent political campaign what we calls Free West Papua Separatist in Papua and West Papua provinces
In some of a more most explicit expressions on Free West Papua violent separatism, we would argue it was “unacceptable” for anyone to disobey the laws of the Republic of Indonesia in the name of a separatism. “The republic of Indonesia must keep its promises, to fight against discrimination and welfare justice, Indonesia must put democracy everywhere, including in Papua and West Papua. However, when it comes to violent separatist campaign by Free West Papua and the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP), all West Papuan supported by their brothers and sisters should stand together against this evil campaign. We must not only fight against separatism, but also make sure that irrational and imbecile people like Benny Wenda, Oridek Ap, and their military wing led by Mathias Wenda and others stop provoking conflict in Papua and West Papua.
I hope people who read this blog will be able to see a clearer picture of what’s happening in Papua and West Papua.
Located on the western half of the island of New Guinea and long racked by a simmering violent separatist insurgency, Papua encompasses Indonesia’s two easternmost provinces.
A former Dutch colony, West Papua was formally incorporated into Indonesia in 1969, after an undisputed vote of about 1,025 representative tribal leaders. The result of the plebiscite was overseen and endorsed by the United Nations.
Since the democratization in 1998, especially since 2007, democracy by mean of elections has been introduced to increase political participation in the two provinces. The fact that the leaders of Papua and West Papua provinces are democratically elected by the people has strengthened the legality of the region as a province of Indonesia.
