Saving Stealth (Siluman) West Papua Websites

I’ve been running this blog for more than ten years. Visitors to this blog is around 27 thousands. A small number but I think it’s okay for an independent blog about West Papua. I support West Papuan to live better life, but I disagree with provocative campaign by Free West Papua Campaign (FWPC) and the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP). I have a very simple reason: “please think about ending the conflict by peaceful dialogue”. No more killing and terror by Free West Papua military wing and no more security operation that frightened the population in West Papua.

I found several inactive websites about West Papua such as Westpapuaupdate.com, Onwestpapua.com, Freewestpapua.co, Freewestpapua.co.nz, dan Westpapuaarchive.com. Those short-lived websites were accused as “siluman” and Indonesian word for stealth. Tirto.id who investigated the case clearly not in favour to the objective content of the websites, but highlighted the owner named Dr. Arya and writers who openly explained the background of why they create such websites.

Remember, three sides of every story. Tirto.id has its own view, the owner also has its story. How about the truth?

The truth for me is the amazing contents of stories from the websites. We can learn many aspects of West Papua that have been neglected by mainstream media and also by conflict provocateurs.

From today, I will copy and paste all stories from those stealth website and save it in my blog. If you know the owner personally, please let him know.
