Papua New Guinea’s government has deployed a joint security operation to destroy alleged free West Papua activist training camps along the PNG-Indonesia border.
The government says illegal activities in Vanimo along its side of the border pose a national security threat to its sovereignty. Continue reading
I’ve never read anything so lacking in balance like Jay Griffiths’ article in the Guardian. I cannot think of a more apt way to describe the anti-Indonesia vitriol that was pouring out of the Guardian thread following the article.
I have downloaded the report that Jay Griffiths mentioned in her article from Allan Nairn’s Blog. I read it thoroughly and carefully, and it did mention the 15 names of prominent figures in Kotaraja, Papua, but I can not find anything about killing those people. The document is a Kopassus quarterly report without signature or proof of authenticity.
I was hoping for some incisive analysis from an impartial observer but she’s obviously just had a boozy lunch with the Notorious Free West Papua Campaign and written this directly afterwards. What a clown !
Dear Andy, (If I may?)
Several days ago you wrote this comment:
“There are three sides of a story…..so, tell the Indonesian Government to open the gate in Papua and West Papua to foreign journalists so the truth could be identified, not mine or yours.”
About the gate to Papua, it is always open as you may see in the many reports on Papua directly from Papua. Hundreds foreign journalists and NGO activists with tourists visa have visited Papua. Jay Griffiths from UK said that it is not difficult to go there (Papua): buy a ticket, say you’re a tourist, and get your notebook out. Very simple, right? Continue reading

Benny Wenda, a notorious criminal (murder case 9 years ago in West Papua) who is also a self proclaimed separatist leader in Papua, is continuing his evil propaganda. He’s a Cunning Sociopath. Continue reading

Violence Attack by Free Papua Movement
Merauke: An attack on a border post between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea when two local inhabitants, Klemen Basik-Basik and Amandus Basik-Basik were shot dead is now under investigation. The two lost their lives because they attacked members of infantry battalion 132/Bima Sakti who were on duty at the post.
A young inexperienced film maker, Dominic Brown entered the social sphere of evil propaganda, controlling what people would see in West Papua. A propaganda film was made “forgotten bird of paradise” in 2009 with the expressed aim of “spreading lies about West Papua and trying to create conflict in the peaceful land of Papua”.

- The alleged “genocide” in West Papua never happened since the population of native Papuans doubled under Indonesian rule (800,000 in 1971 to 1.8 million in 2010). Please read the latest statistic.
- It is statistically impossible for “100,000 people” to be killed due to the fact all tribal languages (each of which at average has only several hundred speakers) that existed prior to Indonesian rule, actually still exists today. Please read ethnologue.
- Papua IS NOT CLOSED TO FOREIGNERS since hundreds of foreign journalists have visited the place, and the fact that thousands of foreign expats work there in mining or as missionaries.
- The integration of Papua into Indonesia is completely flawless legally, as acknowledged by UN General Assembly Resolution, and by every country in the world.
West Papua, or Irian, is just another part of Indonesia which finally came back to the motherland in 1969. The fact that the Ducth managed to holds on part of our country for a little bit longer than the rest does not mean that they should not return it all. Continue reading
