The story of the plunder of West Papua and the obliteration of a Melanesian people

Talk about West Papua as part of Indonesia…wrong introduction, therefore the conclusion is aslo contaminated with errors. The real reasons as now known, were to do with a deal by US, Australia, Indonesia , and to an extent the Netherlands to plunder the massive natural resources found to exist in West Papua at the time.

Take a look at this shot of the tropical sun rising over the coastal villages of Jayapura, Hamadi and Engross, with Yotefa Bay still sleeping under the Melanesia skies as opposed to Asian onslaught of an unsuspecting and still sleeping defenseless and weak people. Wake up Melanesia, beware the thief lurks.

Today is Indonesia’s Independence Day, which falls on 17 August every year since 1945. But something is very wrong about it claim over West Papua…Papuans know they will never be Indonesian and never were. If Bintang Kejora was flown besides the Merah Putih flag of Indonesia as the Dutch did to set the decolonization process in motion, the story would have differed significantly.After self – government comes independence. Indonesia has ‘colonized’ or occupied West Papua brutally, and its presence has been illegal from day one. The New York Agreement is illegal just like the presence of the javanese in West Papua is illegal. 

The commemoration of 50 Years of New York Agreement which paved the way for integration of Papua into the unitary Republic of Indonesia brings into questions more than it answers to an an uninformed or insular world, because the audience has been stage – managed since. History stands to be rewritten.

Papuan intellectual, Drs. Paul Sumino, wrote a political discourse carried by Bintang Papua as the headline this week pointing to the fallacy of history of the integration of Papua into the lap of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI). August 15, 2012 coincided with the 50-year deal New York (New York Agreement) which is one milestone in the struggle of Papuans to free their homeland from the clutches of colonizers. Indonesia continued from the Dutch to further colonize after the Dutch were pressured by Indonesia to leave under the the New York Agreement. Some noted political discourses called the transition a maneuvre substitute ‘white’ colonialism with ‘yellow’ or ‘brown’ colonialism so as to continue to transfer the civilizing effect of foreign presence. The real reasons as now known, were to do with a deal by US, Australia, Indonesia , and to an extent the Netherlands to plunder the massive natural resources found to exist in West Papua at the time.
