Presidential Elections

Presidential Elections | Voice Of Baptist Papua | Scoop.it

Departing from the monarchical tradition of Britain, the founding fathers of the United States created a system in which the American people had the power and responsibility to select their leader. Under this new order, George Washington, the first U.S. president, was elected in 1789. At the time, only white men who owned property could vote, but the 15th, 19th and 26th Amendments to the Constitution have since expanded the right of suffrage to all citizens over 18.

 

Taking place every four years, presidential campaigns and elections have evolved into a series of fiercely fought, and sometimes controversial, contests, now played out in the 24-hour news cycle. The stories behind each election—some ending in landslide victories, others decided by the narrowest of margins—provide a roadmap to the events of U.S. history.

Backlot Bitch: Lana Wachowski Wins Visibility Award From HRC | Bitch Media | Voice Of Baptist Papua | Scoop.it

I'm generally skeptical of any award given out so closely to the release of an honoree's film. It's an extra press release, another sound bite, and a little something for the likes of Entertainment Tonight, Extra!, and TMZ to shill. Yawn.

 

That said, it was worth following The Hollywood Reporter's extensive coverage of the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award, presented to Cloud Atlas codirector Lana Wachowski.

“The Indonesian government should sue the ones who made that ad,” Golkar Party lawmaker Poempida Hidayatullah said. “[The government] should ask Malaysia about their seriousness in handling Indonesian migrant workers.”

The Jakarta Post/ANNCivil society groups in Asean countries have expressed disappointment over the content and process of the first-ever Asean human rights declaration, which aims to ensure human rights protection for 600 million people in the region.

 

Yuyun Wahyuningrum, senior advisor on Asean and Human Rights at the watchdog Human Rights Working Groups, which represents more than 50 human rights groups in Indonesia, said that the draft did not reflect the universal values that Asean pledged to uphold.

 

"We are disappointed over the content and drafting process, which lacks transparency. Up to now, the document has not been shared with the public. This is not best practice," Wahyuningrum told The Jakarta Post.

Pemuda Papua vs Sumpah Pemuda 28 Oktober 1928

Pemuda Papua vs Sumpah Pemuda 28 Oktober 1928 | Voice Of Baptist Papua | Scoop.it

By. Saskar Paiderouw

 

Di tujukan kepada seluruh orang asli Papua di seantero Tanah PAPUA Tercinta: Apakah sdra/i mengetahui atau memiliki dokumen sejarah atau informasi sejarah yg bisa di pertanggungjawabkan secara akademik bahwa pada tanggal 28 Oktober 1928 Cetusnya Sumpah Pemuda, hadir wakil tokoh pemuda orang asli Papua sebagai peserta r
esmi dalam peristiwa tersebut sumpah pemuda??....

 

Jawaban atas pertanyaan ini sangat kami butuhkan di Putra Serui
; karena di SERUI Papua saat ini ada sekelompok orang termasuk pemerintah daerah setempat mengklaim bahwa pada tanggal 28 Oktober 1928 Momentum Sumpah Pemuda, ada salah seorang Putra Asli Papua atas nama: AITAI KARUBABA asal kampung Ambai Kabupaten Yapen Serui menghadiri peristiwa cetusnya Sumpah Pemuda.

 

Memperingati HUT Sumpah Pemuda 28 Oktober 1928, Wakil Bupati Kepulauan Yapen (Frans Sanadi), Dandim 1709 Serui dan Ketua KNPI Kepulauan Yapen (Herman Woriori) beserta rombongan Pemuda dan Pelajar melakukan siara ke kuburan AITAI KARUBABA di Kampung Ambai dan mencanangkan rencana pembangunan tugu peringantan almarhum Aitai Karubaba sebagai Tokoh Pemuda wakil Papua pada peristiwa Sumpah Pemuda 84 Tahun silam.

 

Tentu sebagai seorang guru saya MERAGUKAN temuan sejarah kipra Aitai Karubaba (almrhum) yg sedang di populerkan di Serui saat ini. Saya menilai temuan yg sedang dibuka atas nama Sejarah; baik Sejarah sebagai Ilmu maupun sejarah sebagai peristiwa masa lampau dalam konteks ini adalah TIDAK BENAR. Temuan tersebut BERDIMENSI POLITIK untuk memenuhi kepentingan NKRI atas Papua.

 

Mohon dukungan bantuan para Ilmuwan dan para Pakar Sejarah Asli Papua meneluri dan membuktikan Wacana Sejarah tersebut. Saya tunggu tanggapan sdra/i di email: spaiderouw@yahoo.com
