POLITICAL STATEMENT
No: 015/knpb.sp/V/2011

Today, May 1, 2011, We the people of West Papua mediated by the West Papua National Committee [KNPB] give our statement that:

1.  We the Indigenous People of West Papua have never and will never accept the Unitary Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) to occupy our
territory, West Papua.

2.  The process of incorporating our territory of West Papua under the rule of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI); starting from 1963 until 1969
with the cooperation of Indonesia, the United States, the Netherlands and the United Nations was  engineered, constructed and
managed by violations of the Standards and Principles of International Law.

Because we, as the owners of West Papua, were
never involved in the meetings and international agreements which discussed the political status of our region of West Papua.

3.  Unilateral agreements made under the “New York Agreement” were not fully implemented by the UN, Indonesia and the Netherlands during the Act of Free Choice in 1969;  in which we the people of West Papua were never granted the political right to vote (based on the principle of “one man one vote”) in the implementation carried out by the 1025 Act of Free Choice representatives appointed by Indonesia
to represent us and  choose.   It is a violation of our political rights.

4.   Indonesia  through its military operations have killed most of the indigenous population of West Papua Oince the DOM (Area of
Military operations) was applied in West Papua from 1963.

5.  Indonesia  has pursed, intimidated, terrorized, gaoled and killed the people of West Papua who fight for their rights and sovereignty of the West Papua nation.

6.  Autonomy is not a solution to solve the West Papua problem, because t we, as the indigenous people of West Papua in West
Papua, had never approved the application of special autonomy, UP4B Program and all policies by Indonesia in West Papua.

7.  Whoever  supports  the  Special  Autonomy  and  all  Indonesian  policies  in  West  Papua,  they are (considered) part of the colonists who compromise with Indonesia to abolish the political rights of our indigenous people of Papua; because our main problem is that the right of self determination which was trampled and eliminated through the implementation of the Act of Free Choice in 1969.

8.  We do not acknowledge the existence of the Republic of Indonesia government and all state institutions of Indonesia, in the land of
West Papua.

Therefore, based on our statement above, we the indigenous people of West Papua demand that Indonesia:

1.  Stop  all  the  political  maneuvering  that  is  being  implemented  through  the  Special  Autonomy,  Redistricting,  UP4B  program,
Elections,  Formation of MRP,  and all its programs on our homeland of West Papua.

2.  Indonesia and West Papua as subject to international law to immediately restore the political status of West Papua to the table of
international law, to prove itsef honest and thoughtful about the validity of Indonesia’s presence  in our region of West Papua, for the sake of humanity and justice for the people of West Papua.

3.   Immediately demonstrate the political will to hold a democratic referendum in West Papua under UN supervision in order to achieve the final solution of the political conflict in West Papua.

4.  Stop the militaristic approach to solving problems in West Papua, because that is a archaic way in this era of open democracy.

Along with this, for the sake of solving the problems of West Papua through the process of Law and Politics, then we the people of West
Papua formally hand over a full mandate to:

1. Ms. Melinda Janki as chairman of the International Lawyers for West Papua (ILWP), Ms.. Charles Forster and all members ILWP to encourage the completion of the West Papua problem through the application of international law.

2. Mr. Andrew Smith, MP, as Chairman of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua (IPWP), Ms.. Caroline Lucas MP and all members IPWP to push the political process at the international level with the Free Papua solidarity supporters.

3. To the Government of the Republic of Vanuatu as Official Member of the UN to bring Legal Status of West Papua to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) or International Tribunal.

For the sake of the unity of the struggle of West Papuans, then we also appeal to all the components and struggle organizations of the West
Papua that:

1. To stop the internal dispute between the Papuan people and organizations of struggle, and (to end) all unilateral decisions and that does not represent the values and decisions of the representatives of West Papua and its struggle.

2. Immediately unite in national consolidation to encourage the formation of the National Council of West Papua as an Agency Representative of
National Struggle in West Papua.

This statement has been made based on pure will of the people of West Papua.

  1. Dengan satu tekad, satu tujuan, pasti papua akan merdeka namun belum ada keatuan dan persatuan antar kita orang asli papua sendiri maka sangat lama yang banyak menelang korban jiwa yang sangat banyak dari tahun 1962- sampe sekarang.
    salam perjuangan
    salam kompok

  2. About TIMIKA
    Indonesia is committing crimes against humanity in West Papua. Indonesia is killing, raping, torturing and imprisoning anyone that calls for independence. The people of West Papua want to be free! The struggle for freedom will always continue. Viva la resistance. Freedom and justice will come to West Papua.

  3. Penindakan Masalah Papua Tak Sesederhana Jakarta
    ——————————————————————————————-
    Gejolak di Papua yang semakin meluas sejak sebulan terakhir membuat Presiden SBY secara tegas menyatakan jika Papua dan Papua Barat tetap dalam kerangka negara kesatuan Republik Indonesia.

    Hal tersebut diungkapkan Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, saat menjawab pertanyaan pasis siswa TNI AD asal Papua Mayor Kavaleri Palian yang menyatakan bahwa Papua harus ditangani sesegera mungkin. Palian juga menanyakan bagaimana sikap negara dalam hal pengamanan keutuhan kedaulatan.

    Atas pertanyaan perwira siswa (pasis) tersebut hanya bisa pertanyaan seperti begitu karena siswa tersebut belum pernah terlibat dan belum tau persoalan Senketa politik Papua Barat, Presiden bisa dengan tegas menyatakan seperti begitu karena dia sebagai kepala Negara RI, “Tidak ada referendum, serta Papua dan Papua Barat merupakan wilayah kedaulatan NKRI yang sah sampai titik darah penghabisan. SBY mengatakan seperti begitu pun juga Pasti Papua akan tempu melalui jalur REFERENDUM”

    Di hadapan TNI- POLRI di Secapa TNI AD, Bandung, Jumat 29 Juni 2012 itu, SBY menyatakan, jika peran TNI dalam hal mengamankan gangguan keamanan di Papua dan Papua Barat merupakan fungsi pengamanan kedaulatan negara. Di sana TNI harus berada sebagai mediator bagi rakyat Papua, tetapi malah TNI/Polri jadikan aktor utama telor, intimidasi, penangkapan, pengejaran, dan penembakan terhadap Rakyat Papua.

    “Banyak yang menilai konflik di Papua ini konflik kepentingan internasional, tetapi ini konflik politik murni yang harus kita tangani secara kompleks baik secara politik.

    Beberapa bulan belakangan, serangkaian aksi kekerasan dan penembakan misterius terjadi di Papua. Namun aparat penegak hukum di wilayah tersebut masih menganggap kondisi keamanan masih kondusif.

    “Papua secara umum masi terauma dan papua jadi zona darurat , peristiwa di satu tempat tidak bisa digeneralisir terjadi di seluruh wilayah Papua. Pasti saja Papua akan lumpukan seluruh daerah

    Menurut Yohanes, gangguan keamanan di Papua hanya meletus di beberapa tempat dan bukan di seluruh daerah provinsi tersebut. “Bila ada peristiwa di Timika dan Puncak Jaya, dan kota jayapura saja belum tentu ada di kabupaten atau kota lain di Papua, Pasti kota/kab yang lain di papua terjadi sepeti begitu persoalan papua selesaikan rumit . “tersebut”

    Dalam catatan VIVAnews, Agenda nasional yang semestinya berlangsung di Papua, yakni Raimuna Nasional (pramuka) yang seyogyanya dilaksanakan 25 Juni lalu dan akan dibuka secara resmi oleh Presiden, akhirnya ditunda bukan alasan dengan Pilkada Gubernur Papua selesai tetapi SBY takut turun ke Papua.

  4. There is one thing in West Papua that interested and will be all gone in a sec by the goverment that never responsible for the human rights.
    The mining of gold is nothing.
    But the mining of the diamond is never exposed.
    Cry of hunger,
    Tears of damaged,
    Blood of innocent killing field.
    Isn’t that enough for more then 35 years.
    This will go to far.
    I will help on the pray and letter to all people who care.
