Stop teaching hatred to children !

In West Papua many children from different ethnic groups are most friendly with other children surrounding them. They would express empathy amongst friends, the purity of childhood without worrying about the life which surrounds them and only one thing a child understands in a childhood life and that should only be “child’s play”.

Unfortunately, indifference in London of five Papuan children of Benny and Maria Wenda, an activist for West Papua, appalling behaviour for such parents to direct their children is this kind of environment. Using minors to chant in an abrupt way showing ugliness in vision of a child and behind the child you wonder if the child itself would understand in the obstacle concept of human rights. Much sympathy to the children as no knowledge would be known unless pursuance by an adult, who in this circumstance abuses the child’s mind in diversity killing their thoughts of being a child and early adulthood.

This would emphasise the parents of being “exploiting” of their own children for their own needs. In an in-appropriate mannerism so disturbing you wonder why bring, such children in this world if you are only using them for exploitation and abuse. We can only visualise how such parents have no dignity in teach their children in this manner for their own goodwill.

I can only hope that all children should not be used for “Child Exploitation” in any circumstances. So it is appalling that Benny and Maria Wenda put this action upon their children, the law should take this into consideration, high lights for concern and should prosecute such parents for their actions.

Benny Wenda still inciting hatred

The hateful acts that occurred at every campaign by Benny Wenda are disgusting.  Playing a role as imaginary leader of West Papuan in exile, Benny Wenda is not only telling lies about the development in West Papua, but also inciting hatred in the hope to push greater conflict in West Papua. Please take a serious attention to his campaign which always demonized the new democratic Indonesia from a very narrow perspective. He keeps his campaign as a protection of his personal interest to stay in UK as long as possible, sucking British tax payer money, deceiving British people, and trying to undermine the UK-Indonesia bilateral relations.

Benny Wenda not only did take the life of a young policeman of great promise but he has destroyed a family’s happiness. Benny Wenda, 37 year-old killed a police officer and injured two other police officers on 07 December 2000 during a horrific attack to a police station in Abepura, Papua. Benny Wenda will deny all charges against him and innocently will say that his activities in the year of 2000 was only a simple peaceful demonstration and raising flag.

Benny Wenda tries to radicalise young Papuan in West Papua by many of his statements on the internet. Although he failed in his efforts to radicalise young Papuan, he managed to create some small radical groups in West Papua supporting his agenda in the UK. At the end of the day, the goal of such activities is not for Papuan but for himself to be accepted within British society as someone who deserved to be supported financially.

Until today, Benny Wenda still inciting hatred freely in the UK. Why both the UK  and Indonesia don’t take his hate campaign seriously ? besides the effects of Wenda’s campaign is not significant, probably both governments have a strong belief in  democracy.

How about questioning Benny Wenda’s dark history as a murder suspect?  He is capable of doing wrong thing in the past, so there is a huge possibility of doing it again  today or in the future. But in the mean time, we might only see him singing a song, appealing for money and support, and doing demonstration peacefully. Great work Benny Wenda !

Former chair of Papua People’s Assembly, Alua, dies

A veteran West Papuan leader, the former chairman of the Papua People’s Assembly in Indonesia, Agus Alue Alua has died in a Jayapura hospital.

Local media is reporting that Alua is understood to have collapsed suddenly yesterday and was rushed to Dian Harapan Hospital in Papua’s provincial capital where he was dead on arrival.
