3) Indigenous Peoples' Alliance/Indonesia: Deaths and Hunger in Kwoor District, Papua

April 5, 2013

Indigenous Peoples' Alliance
of the Archipelago
Press Release

“We have been sick for so long yet the medical staffs do not care at
all,” complained people of Kwoor district, Tambrauw regency to The
Indigenous Peoples’ Alliance of the Archipelago (AMAN) Chapter
Sorong Raya.

Since November 2012, indigenous peoples of Kwoor district have been
getting stricken by disease causing mass deaths. The people mostly
suffer from malnutrition and itching skin. These have been epidemic in
several villages, including Jokjoker, Kosefo, Baddei, Sukuweis and
Krisnos.

According to the information AMAN Sorong Raya has obtained, as per
February 2013, about 535 people has been affected by those diseases
and 95 people died. In Baddei village, 250 people are ill and 45
people died. In Jokjoker, 210 people are ill and 15 people died. In
Kosefa, 75 people are ill and 35 people died.

According to villagers, the government of Kwoor doesn’t provide any
health service. The Postu (subordinate station) in Kwoor remains
lacking of medical staffs, thus people willing to consult are often
unable to obtain health service due to the absence of doctor or mantri
(medical practitioner). Villagers often have to walk to another
village just to get medical treatment.

Church staff of Jokjoker said that the epidemic in that village
started in November 2012. Villagers went to Werur village to get
medical treatment and have reported to medical staff and government of
Sausapor district and Tambrauw regency. Yet, they have not shown any
obvious effort to help the villagers. Today the people have to find
the medical treatment themselves by walking a very long distance for
days.

Until February 2013, a lot of people of Kwoor died one after another.
Villagers of Kosefo (of which 12 people are ill) walked to Sausapor
district for four days just to get medical treatment and report to
hospital. Villagers of Jokjoker were traumatized because a lot of
people have died. They didn’t have any choice but to move to Bikar,
Baddei Sibi villages or to Sausapor. Travelling on foot from Jokjoker
to Bikar takes one whole day.

Local government is slow in giving health service. Until today, only
two villages (Sumbab and Bikar) have gotten medicines. People are
ordered to come to villages downhill. Since most of them are ill and
can’t walk long distance, just some people came to get medicines
from villages in where health service established.

AMAN Sorong Raya and its network have been trying to stop this
epidemic. They have sent representatives to obtain a more detailed and
complete information. AMAN Sorong is consolidating existing networks
to urge the local government to establish service to handle the
epidemic in Tambrauw regency.

AMAN Sorong Raya’s recommendations are as follow:

• The State is indicatively committing gross human rights violation
by neglecting its people. • Immediately sending medical teams
providing treatment and service for ill villagers. • Establishing
counseling and reinforcement for villagers losing their family members
to prevent lingering trauma. • Immediately establishing independent
investigation on the mass deaths and improper health services.

4) KNPB protest against police searches
JUBI, 4 April 2013

The National Committee for West Papua - KNPB - has protested  against measures taken by the police to search the homes of people in the vicinity of Perumnas-EXPO, Waene , Jayapura, in their search for Danny Wenda.

Spokesman for the  KNPB, Wim Medlama told JUBI: 'The police carried out a search of the home of IM (initials only) on Thursday as well as other homes all of which is quite unjustified  and would clearly not lead them to Danny Wenda, he said.

Wim Medlama said that since Danny has been declared to be on the 'wanted'  list (DPO), he has not appeared anywhere in Jayapura or the vicinity. 'We too have not been in contact with him. We have no idea where he has gone.'

'These searches make no sense and can only create new problems,' said Medlama. He alleged that the police searches were part of a special agenda being pursued by the police on behalf of vested interests.

With regard to the comment by the police that they are not directing their search against  the KNPB but against Danny Wenda and say that this is in connection with a shooting incident in July last year in Jayapura, Medlama said that if Danny were not a member of the KNPB, why would the police be looking for him? He is ssen as being connected with the case of the late Mako Tabuni.'
