2. UN, DUTCH, U.S. and INDONESIA never involve us Papuans as owners of this country in determining the status and future of our nation, West Papua. Therefore, the status of West Papua in the Homeland is illegal because it violates the standard-standard and principles of international law and human rights.

3. Implementation of Choice in 1969 is an event full of engineering for economic and political interests of the United States, Indonesia and the United Nations. Because we Papuans never wanted or chose unanimously to join the Homeland. Thus the UN has failed to implement the mechanism of a referendum on the date, July 14 until August 2, 1969.

2) We ask the IPWP and ILWP and Vanuatu Government soon became the facilitator for political accountability and legal status of West Papua to the UN.

======================

REFERENDUM IS THE BEST WAY TO WEST PAPUA

KNPB News: Thursday December 8 July 2010 the people of West Papua nation which incorporated and organized by WEST PAPUA NATIONAL COMMITTEE (KNPB) REGION Mimika, West Papua reduce the nation’s approximately 2000 people of Papua in the Timika area. Mimika earth to witness and stated that the referendum is the best solution for problem solving West Papua.

Under the banner of peaceful demonstrations which are carried on “The best way for the people of West Papua is a referendum” and a banner that also under the action of a “nation of West Papua human rights in emergency situations.” Both banners are lowered by the Papua People’s west incorporated in WEST PAPUA NATIONAL COMMITTEE (KNPB) Timika region. Peaceful demonstrations are done on the Thursday on 8 July 2010 is the voice of the people of West Papua nation which is in Timika states that “By the Way we can be free referendum” stressed the head of KNPB Timika.

12:00 pm Time Papua West Papua National Committee Chairman (KNPB) Timika Region ROMARIO YATIPAI explains that the purpose of Peace Demonstration conducted and organized by KNPB Timika Region that:

1. West Papua nation is a nation that has his identity as God’s creation the same with other nations in the world. Recognition as a nation as the skin, characterized by racial Malanesian Black and short Hair must admit that as inhabitants of this paradise Island.
2. We the people of West Papua nation down the road to support the recommendation Papuan People’s Assembly (MRP) at the Great Council of the Papua People’s Assembly of December 9 to 10 June 2010 has given birth and Recommendation 11 of them are already recommended that the Special Autonomy has Failed to return to Jakarta and so Referendum demanded. The referendum demands which were born in the recommendations of the MRP is not because of the failure of special autonomy but the West Papuan People’s Voice Pure, so do not be mistaken that the referendum could be born because the Failure of Special Autonomy.
3. Romario Yatipai asserted that the referendum is the best way for the people of West Papua to Self-Determination Alone in this State. So we invite the people of West Papua nation to unite Steps to an existing exit through IPWP and International level ILWP as international media to the people of West Papua who are ready to resolve the issue of West Papua because referendum OFF PRICE IS SELF-ESTEEM and INDEPENDENCE IS THE NATION WEST PAPUA
human rights are universal rights that must be respected by all people in this world, without exception.
4. Yet that is precisely inversely seen in Papua. Increasingly repressive Indonesian military rampage today in Puncak Jaya regency against civilians, which is a major threat to survival. Innocent people are falling everywhere in the whole of Papua. Violations of human rights problems in Papua is a problem very long time or period. Unfortunately justice and truth never take sides for the people of Papua in shympatizme human rights issues and lighter weight is always the case. It became obvious that the shootings of the late Mr. KELLY KWALIK General has violated the universal declaration of human rights in the world but has been let and has been considered that the assassination was like killing an animal, That’s the presumption that no same riight as a Man of God’s creation must be respected.
5. Violence Negara Indonesia through its ranks like Army-Police truly lethal human rights systematically in all aspects of the course towards the process of Genocide (ethnic cleansing) of the People of Papua as Malanesian. Everything to do to turn off the road in the nation of Papua for the sake of the abundant natural wealth in this country not for the sake of humanity that exists. Above this real condition, the West Papua National Committee (KNPB) invites to all lovers of human values over the Land of Papua for solidarity and join for saying VIOLENCE STATE OPPOSITION top of the Papuan People’s Nation. So our demands, “The immediate international intervention in the Territory of Papua, Papua Because already used as a Military Operations Area (DOM) Volume II, so will the new casualties in the list of human rights violations in West Papua”

14.00 Time of Papua during the action started to go in the yard DPRD Mimika district. The period included in the peace and quiet are very tense Karen security from the Police, NIA, and the Mobile Brigade Detachment B, Densus 88, reduce its personnel with a complete weapon.

6. Mimika Police Chief requested that who led by this action to coordinate so we get a tremendous pressure, as the police chief reprimanded community hard to Romario Yatipai that “Opinions must be submitted in accordance with existing mechanisms in the legislation of the Republic of Indonesia.” In accordance with the existing mechanism as good citizens we have to report to police notice of Action Demonstration. We can conclude that the space of Democracy on Earth the Mimika more of special and general West Papua has been shut by means of the republic of Indonesia because our country staged a peaceful demonstration was always in block by State security forces are Army, Police, BIN, and the Mobile Brigade Densus 88 . This has proven to when KNPB staged Timika Region of Peace, the police chief of Mimika Moch Sagi reprimand with no disrespect to the Mimika KNPB told that Answer Romario Yatipai action.

ATTITUDE OF THE NATIONS POLITICAL DECLARATION OF WEST PAPUA

In this happy occasion we the people of West Papua nation on earth Mimika, Papua, the western states with a real political attitudes that:
1.
We the people of West Papua nation which existed across the Timika region, told the world that a referendum is the best solution for the people of West Papua nation because the problem of West Papua’s political status is a matter of violation of the Act of Free Choice 1969 LAW defective national and international law.
2. We fully support IPWP ILWP as media people and the nation of West Papua in the international world to solve problems through the process of the western Papuan self-determination referendum for West Papua.
3. We urge that IPWP and ILWP well as countries struggle for independence supporters to send troops to West Papua Peace by securing for west Papua Very Emergency situations.
Thus the political statement of the people of this nation we the people of West Papua, Papua nation on earth with a real Timika.

International news agencies have reported on the mass rally in Jayapura, capital of Indonesia’s Papua province. Thousands of people joined a long march, walking 17 km from the MRP (Majelis Rakyat Papua – Papua People’s Assembly) to the DPRP (Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Papua – Papuan Provincial Legislature), rejecting the Special Autonomy granted by Indonesia in 2001 and demanding a referendum on West Papuan independence and an internationally-mediated dialogue with Jakarta. As protesters joined the rally from several points in the city, the crowd – claimed by media to number just a few thousand – swelled to nearly 20,000. They occupied the grounds of the provincial legislature under the watchful eye of police and army units.
