The evolving military relationship between the US and Indonesia is there for all to see in the decision by US Congress to allow the sale of at least eight heavily armed AH-64D Apache attack helicopters to an army Washington once saw as a regional pariah.

 

But Leahy kept up the pressure, sending a letter to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono that same year demanding an accounting of military human rights abuses committed in East Timor, Aceh and Papua. The retired general never responded.

Australian Foreign Minister talks Indonesia's Papua & Asian Century - Australia Network News - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Australian Foreign Minister talks Indonesia's Papua & Asian Century - Australia Network News - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | Papuan News | Scoop.it
Foreign Minister Bob Carr says Australia has been explicit in its support for Indonesia's sovereignty over Papua.

 

Senator Carr told Newsline the provinces have been recognised "by all the nations in the earth" as Indonesian territory.

 

"There are Australians, a very small number I think...who take an interest in the notion for more autonomy for Papua but I remind them that you'd be doing a disservice to the Indonesian population of those two provinces if you held out any hope that Australia could influence the cause of events," he said.

 

Indonesia's government and military have been criticised in the past for human rights abuses in Papua, after Indonesia took over the province in 1969 in a vote by community leaders that was widely criticised as flawed.

Survival International en andere mensenrechtenorganisaties demonstreerden vandaag in Londen tegen het bezoek van president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono aan het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Dit is het eerste bezoek van een Indonesisch staatshoofd aan Londen in 33 jaar.

 

Twee jaar geleden zag de Indonesische president af van een staatsbezoek aan Nederland (de eerste sinds 40 jaar) nadat de president in ballingschap van de Republiek der Zuid-Molukken, John Wattilete, een kort geding had aangespannen om hem te laten arresteren wegens misdrijven tegen de mensheid.

We demand our right of self-determination to a referendum to be held in West Papua by UN peacefully and democratically”. Report on incident by 7.30 report

Perjuangan Rakyat Papua adalah sebuah ILUSI

Perjuangan Rakyat Papua adalah sebuah ILUSI | Papuan News | Scoop.it

By, Albertho G. Wanimbo

 

"Peraatuan dalam perjuangan Rakyat Papua adalah sebuah ILUSI, hal ini di tulis oleh Albert di akun Facebooknya."


Lanjutnya dia menulis, "Selamanya tidak akan pernah terjadi. Anda sedang Bermimpi ketika Anda serukan Persatuan/penystuan Faksi atau Organ Perjuangan di Papua. Jujur! Anda tidak akan pernah menemukannya disana. Yang ada hanyalah persatuan semu".

 

Dia menambahkan, "Kata persatuan adalah Tabu dalam perjalanan Revolusi, Revolusi tidak membutuhkan kekuatan Persatuan, tapi Revolusi membutuhkan Kekompakan".


Lanjut lagi,"Kata persatuan telah melemahkan perjuangan Rakyat Papua itu sendiri. Argumentasinya, keyika kita bicara persatuan, perjuangan Rakyat tidak bergerak maju, tetapi Perjuangan Rakyat Papua senantiaasa berjalan di tempat! Rakyat Papua butuh kemajuan dalam Perjalanan perjuangannya!

 

Kemajuan perjuangan dalam arti harafiah adalah pergerakan yang maju, dan semakin efektif dari hari-ke hari".

 

Bukan justru perjuangan yang stagnan atau jalan di tempat. Anda tahu apa penyebab utamanya perjuangan jakan di tempat? adalah karena kata PERSATUAN.

 

Ini Kenyataan Riil Politik di Papua Barat saat ini lajut albert.

Ini Realita.... bahwa perjuangan Papua sudah tidak bisa d tempuh dengan jalan Damai... sekarang anda boleh berkilah, tapi besok anda akan mengerti kenyataan! ketika KNPB bertindak sebagai Media Rakyat Papua, banyak pro dan kontra yg bergulir di papua, oleh org Papua itu sendiri. DAP & WPNA Mendeklarasikan NRFPB melahirkan Forkorus dan Edison Sebagai Presiden dan Perdana Menteri secara sepihak oleh Sebagian org Papua yang tidak di dukung Oleh TPN-PB. ini sebagian kecil potret perjuangan Rakyat papua Akhir2 ini.. ini realita yang sedang Rakyat Papua alami, semua tidak saling mendukun, semu faksi dan organ Pergerakan mengampanyekan issue politiknys masing2, ada yg minta Pengakuan, ada pula yg mendorong Dialog, KNPB dengan Issue Referendum. jika di biarkan seperti ini terus- menerus, pertanyaanya Mau di Bawa kemana Perjuangan ini, ataukah orang papua sendiri ingin mematikan perjuangan Rakyat Papua, agar mendapat Pesangon tiap bulanya dari Pemerintah RI. jika kita bicara persatuan, berarti kita harus mewujudkanya bukan hanya dengan kata2.. anada harus tahu metode apa yg tepat untuk mempersatukan Rakyat Papua dengam organ2/ Faksi2 yg ada di papua... disini kami telah bekerja & berusaha mewujudkan satu kata yg Namanya PERSATUAN tapi juga tetap tidak dapat terwujud karena Egoisme dan isme2 laian yg jadi penghalang! ketika KNPB mulai mengorganisir Rakyat Papua dalam kurun waktu 3 tahun sert membentuk lembaga2 Rakyat yang di lahirkan oleh Rakyat Papua sendiri, seperti DEWAN NASIONAL PAPUA BARAT atau PARLEMEN NASIONAL PAPUA BARAT. tapi juga tdak dapat mempersatukan Organ2 perjuangsn di papua.

A demonstration by Survival International and dozens of human rights protesters has marred the start of Indonesia’s first state visit to London in 33 years.

Protesters held banners and chanted slogans outside the London residence of Britain’s Prime Minister, in a peaceful rally against Indonesia’s poor human rights record, its brutal repression of tribal people in West Papua, and UK links to a counter-terrorism unit implicated in the murder of independence leaders.

Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (known as SBY) will stay at Buckingham Palace and meet ministers from the UK Parliament during his three-day visit.
