2) Papua freedom flotilla to face show of force
- The Australian
- August 16, 2013
Maritime law and security experts have added to safety concerns about the "freedom flotilla", warning the Aboriginal, Papuan and other activists involved could end up serving time in Indonesian jails.
But the 15 members of the flotilla group, who have announced they will leave Cairns on Saturday in two yachts bound for the West Papuan town of Merauke, will defy the warnings, saying they are "feeling very determined".
Aimed at supporting West Papua's independence struggle, the venture could spark diplomatic tensions between Australia and Indonesia if arrests occur.
Venture co-founder and West Papuan independence movement leader Jacob Rumbiak said senior Indonesian officials had warned the group against entering Indonesian territory.
Mr Rumbiak, a representative of the Federated Republic of West Papua, which claims to be West Papua's legitimate transitional government, said the Indonesians had told him: "It will be very dangerous for you; we have a strong navy, strong military." Mr Rumbiak said the comments were made in two meetings, in Canberra on July 23 and 24, attended by Indonesian generals and intelligence officers, with the Indonesian ambassador present at one meeting.
An Indonesian embassy spokesman would not comment on Mr Rumbiak's claims, but said: "It is the right of Indonesia to permit or not to permit the subject to enter the country."
Wollongong University maritime security expert Sam Bateman said the sailors could expect their yachts to be "shouldered away" by Indonesian navy or police vessels, or for the sailors to be detained, charged and potentially jailed.
Flotilla spokeswoman Isabella Brown said the group still hoped to be provided safe passage but was "prepared to see what (the Indonesians) have to offer and investigate the consequences".
The flotilla plan grew out of the identification of a common cultural inheritance and shared experiences of dispossession among West Papuan and Australian indigenous people.
Indonesia claimed West Papua after a UN-brokered "act of free choice" in 1969 widely considered to have been stage-managed by the Indonesian military.
A University of Sydney report found Indonesian "military operations have led to thousands of deaths in Papua".
