2)  International Community Must Clarify its Position regarding Papua
5 April 2013

PAPUAN, Jakarta

Markus Haluk, Secretary-General of the Association of Students from the Central Highlands, has questioned the attitude of the international community, especially those countries that frequently raise the issue of violation of human rights in the land of Papua.

'The international community should make it clear whether they support Papua or Indonesia and stopped being two-faced.' He was speaking to the press at the Press Office in Kebon Sirih, Jakarta on 3 April.

Markus said that  the international community is often  critical about the violation of human rights in Papua, but at the same time they are in favour of Papua being a part of NKRI, the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.

'Their position is unclear. They should quickly make it clear whether  they support Papua as a part of Indonesia  where human rights violations continue to occur or support independence for Papua.'

As for the various allegations  made by the Indonesian government against the struggle of the Papuan people, Markus said this was the same as what happened when the Dutch colonised Indonesia .

'While Indonesia claims that Papuans are terrorists, rebels, disrupters of security  and other ridiculous allegations, we too can  accuse Indonesia as thieves, thugs, murderers, colonialists, or anything that people may think.' He was speaking when launching  his latest book, 'Mati atau Hidup' (Dead or Alive),  sub-titled: Hilangnya Harapan Hidup dan Hak Asasi Manusie di Papua - 'The Loss  of Hope and Basic Human Rights in Papua'.

On the same occasion, the chairman of the Alliance of Baptist Churches in Papua, the Rev. Socratez Sofyan Yoamn said that Papua is an international problem and it should be resolved with the help of international mechanisms.

'Just see what is happening!  The only province in Indonesia that needs international involvement in its solution is Papua, meaning that the Netherlands, the United Nations, the USA and other countries should all be involved in finding a solution to the conflict in Papua.'

The press conference was also attended by Mama Josepha Alomang, Executive Director of YAHAMAK, the Institute Against Violence  and for Human Rights. Mama Josepha  is an activist  who was once the victim of crimes perpetrated by PT Freeport Indonesia in Timika. Papua
