One thought on “Unconfirmed reports of FRWP delegation to Jakarta arrested upon returning to Jayapura.

  1. United Nation is just dump founded on this West Papuan Human rights issue. So as the US, Great Britain, Russia, China and Australia. This issue is a
    genocide at its best for very long time since the 60s when a forced referendum to placed which annexed West Papua to Indonesia. The world super powers should have pressured Indonesia
    decades ago to give autonomy or independence to West Power rather than concentrating heavily on current emerging terrorist issues too much centred in the Arab world. Slow extinction of Melanesian race of West Papua throught genocide, inter-marriage and forced to flee to other countries as refugees or even political exile simply worse than any other human rights issue. The people of West Papua have an equal right to life like human being on earth. Indonesia has to be punished somewhere somehow.
    Could be through economic sanctions.
