Indonesian police and army units have conducted raids and armed sweeps across Papua region to counter demonstrations to mark May 1st, the 50th Anniversary of Indonesia’s annexation of Western New Guinea.
Mass demonstrations were planned for the provincial capital of Papua, Jayapura, however security forces mounted a series raids early in the morning to prevent public participation in the rallies.
Reports emerging from Papua region indicate that thousands of members of civil society organisations converged on parts of Jayapura as well as centres of West Papua province such as Biak and Sorong.
Some of the rallies, in Jayapura and Sorong, were forcibly broken up by police.
Led by a coalition of pro-independence networks including the National Federated Republic of West Papua and the West Papua National Committee, the demonstrations aimed to peacefully protest against Indonesian rule.
Meanwhile, a leading West Papuan academic says Indonesia will not solve problems in Papua region by hunting and killing Papuans leaders and activists.
The US-based Octo Mote, who is part of a group of exiled West Papuans promoting dialogue with Jakarta, says violence and human rights abuses have been increasing in Indonesia’s eastern region over the last couple of years.
He says the large presence of the military is hampering peace efforts while security forces are targetting West Papuans leading the peace movement.
“If Indonesia keep doing by assasinating the leader the issue will never solve, and today the West Papuan peoples back home are commemorating fifty years of colonisation. I think it’s very historical, this moment, to end this fifty years of colonisation through peaceful dialogue.”
Octo Mote

A jailed West Papuan leader has called for unity among the indigenous people of Indonesia’s Papua region on the 50th anniversary of the transferral of the former Dutch New Guinea to Jakarta.
May 1st is traditionally marked with demonstrations by West Papuans who remain largely disillusioned with Indonesian rule since the coerced annexation of West Papua in 1963.
A series of peaceful demonstrations have been planned for today around the provinces of West Papua and Papua although civil society groups fear more violent responses from security forces.
However, Edison Waromi, who is serving a three-year jail term for his role in organising 2011’s Third Papuan People’s Congress where he was declared the Prime Minister of the National Federal Republic of West Papua, has called on West Papuans to unite.
Mr Waromi says that since 1963, hundreds of thousands of West Papuans have been murdered, slaughtered and imprisoned by Indonesia without a fair or peaceful resolution.
Although Indonesia’s government denies that it has political prisoners in Papua, Mr Waromi is one of about 40 West Papuans understood to be incarcerated for their political views.
Indonesian civil society groups have compiled extensive details about these prisoners on a new website called Papuans Behind Bars.
