1) RI, Oz police cooperation  hangs in balance as diplomatic  spat heats up
Yuliasri Perdani, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | World | Tue, November 19 2013, 5:58 PM
National Police chief Gen. Sutarman says that his force may discontinue its cooperation with the Australian government over revelations that an Australian spy agency attempted to bug the phones of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his inner circle.
“We will wait for the President’s instructions on whether to continue collaborating with the Australians,” Sutarman said on Tuesday at National Police headquarters in South Jakarta.
When asked about the possibility that Yudhoyono would order him to bring the cooperation to an end, Sutarman answered, “We will implement the President’s order."
According to Sutarman, the National Police collaborate with the Australian government in the fields of counterterrorism, people trafficking and transnational organized crime.
Cooperation on counterterrorism began in the wake of the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians. At the time, the Australian Federal Police worked closely with the National Police to discover the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
In 2008, the Indonesian and Australian governments jointly launched the Jakarta Center for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC) in Semarang, Central Java. The center was designed for senior law enforcement officials from the Southeast Asia region to develop their skills, including in tackling terrorism and transnational crime.

2) Statement by Yan Christian Warinussy, Executive Director of the LP3BH. on draft autonomy law
The provincial administration of West Papua is at present discussing the draft of a law  for the Land of Papua which would be 'identical' with Law 21/2001 on Special Autonomy for the province of Papua. It is understood that a Team of Experts from Cenderawasih University is taking part in these discussions.

I myself, together with several members of the legal staff of the LP3BH (Institute for Study, Investigation and Promotion  of Human Rights) in Manokwari are involved in these discussions to draw up the draft of a law  which would be called Law on the Governance of Papua.

In response to a request from the Governor of West Papua, Abraham Octavianus Atururi, we are discussing what proposals we would submit which would not necessarily be in line with the contents of the draft now under discussion. But at the same time, we are holding discussions with the leaders of staff of the SKPD (?)  as well as with mass organisations and academics  to offer our honest criticisms of the mechanisms and procedures of these discussions about the draft law.

The basic issue which we have submitted  is that the political dynamics in the Land of Papua reveal very clearly that the Papuan people collectively and through the intermediary  of the  Majelis Rakyat Papua Barat (West Papuan People's Assembly) as well as the two Papuan Provincial Legislative Assemblies (DPRP) have called on the Government of Indonesia to agree to enter into dialogue with the Papuan people, that is to say to hold a peaceful dialogue, facilitated by a neutral third party.

Moreover, speaking in terms of the law, Article 78 of the Special Autonomy Law stresses the importance of the implementation of the law being evaluated every year and for the first time at the end of the third year following the enactment of the Autonomy Law.

The LP3BH wishes to record the fact that today, twelve years after the enactment of the autonomy law, there has never been any comprehensive evaluation of the afore-mentioned autonomy law. Such an evaluation would involve all the components of the Papuan people as well as all the stakeholders, such the the governmental administration, the Indonesian army, the Indonesian police, senior academics, civil society mass organisations and representatives of the various religions throughout the Land of Papua.

3) Indonesia Tells Australia It Needs to Act to Save Relationship

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has characterized the Australian prime minister’s latest statement over spying allegations as “regrettable” and demanded Canberra take further steps to “save” its relations with Jakarta, his spokesman said on Tuesday.
“This kind of espionage is unacceptable and cannot be justified,” Julian Aldrin Pasha told the Jakarta Globe.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott earlier said he regretted if the reports that Australian spies tapped Yudhoyono’s phone had caused any embarrassment, but Abbott has stopped short of offering a formal apology.
Julian said that the State Palace’s position was that Abbott’s comments on the matter were unsatisfactory, citing the “trust” that had formed the basis for the two neighbors’ strategic partnership.
Australia had, however, “crossed the line” and Indonesia will review all bilateral cooperation with Canberra, he said, adding that the recalling of Indonesia’s ambassador to Canberra was a proportionate and firm response for the time being.
“They acted like they did not take us seriously, and from our point of view, we feel underestimated,” Julian said.
The president’s spokesman was, however, forced to deny that the scandal had reached fever pitch only because of the “personal” insult that Australia had planned to listen in on phone calls between Yudhoyono and his wife, Ani, in 2009.
Hikmahanto Juwana, a professor of international relations at the University of Indonesia, said he agreed with the decision to recall the ambassador but that Jakarta should also withdraw its representative to the United States.
“Why does the government only react when SBY and Ibu Ani’s names are mentioned? Doesn’t Indonesia belong to Indonesians and not only SBY and Ani?” he asked.
Julian told AFP that “today’s development is not the final stance of the Australian government and we hope for a positive development to save relations between the two countries.”
Indonesia has reacted furiously to reports, based on leaked documents from US intelligence fugitive Edward Snowden, that Australian spy agencies tried to listen to the phone calls of Yudhoyono, his wife and senior ministers.
On Monday, Jakarta said it would recall its ambassador to Australia and Yudhoyono said cooperation with Canberra would be reviewed following the “hurtful action.”
The reactions among many lawmakers and observers in Indonesia to the revelations was led by voices calling for Indonesia to send Australia a stronger message.
“The Indonesian government should also tell the Australian ambassador in Indonesia to go back to his country for the time being,” Indonesia Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) legislator Tjahjo Kumolo said on Tuesday.

4) 5 Year KNPB Reflection : " The fight is on "
November 19, 2013 By : admin Category : News

It's been 5 years we were standing in a row this resistance with the suffering people of West Papua , because we realize that the real struggle is apparently implementing measures of longing , dreams , prayers , words and ideas are clogged and blocked by fear prison .

This rebellion is not a mistake . We do not feel guilty about being a rebel. After all , is not we who gave birth to the rebellion , but the rebellion was born by the invaders who invaded our homeland of West Papua . Our soul revolted against the occupying Indonesian colonialism action , master , killing , robbing the nation of Papua land and humanity .

KNPB date coincides with the history of the formation of 19 November 1969 , where the United Nations conspiracy which affected the interests of the United States , the Netherlands and Indonesia , without discussing the results of the implementation of the Act of 1969 (act of free choice) that manipulative , blame ( take note ) a UN General Assembly Resolution 1504 ( XXII ) which allow Indonesia occupied and colonized the West Papuan until now .

Indonesian colonialism which has become a bridge for global capitalism is the enemy of the people of the world that should be abolished . They are robbers Papuan political rights , namely the right to self-determination through engineering Act of 1969. Colonialism and capitalism ( imperialism ) without feeling guilty about being an actor determine the future of the nation of Papua . Of the Act of 1969 to the politicization of the Special Autonomy package ( Plus ) , 2013, colonialism unrelenting determine the future of the nation of Papua .

Therefore , the demands of self-determination ( the right of self - determination ) is an absolute fight . We should be deciding our own future , not the colonial power , also open global capitalism . That the colonial political package deal through Autonomy , Redistricting , UP4B , and all such forms are false happiness . We should discard empty illusions that promoted colonial Indonesia and the capitalist .

Resistance movement that we mobilize today is mass-based people's movement , because that condition people's freedom . The people are the determinants of life , because it's the people should be the basis and the actors struggle . That's what our enemies fear . They are afraid that if the people rise up against , hence konial Indonesian authorities over the military / police currently conducting a grass roots destruction with every rotten tactics such assistance , acceptance CPNS , Redistricting , Elections , Autonomy Plus , UP4B , the formation of civilian militias , BMP , LMA , and many more deals . All was done that we forget the struggle , we forget ourselves , forget that the land we are the hands of outsiders , and forget that we are being depleted and extinct on our soil .

West Papua National Committee [ KNPB ] continue to seek unity mass struggle of the people of West Papua . Methods of peaceful resistance and dignity will continue , even for peaceful resistance lives are at stake . But that's the reason our Indonesian colonialism that our enemies are more afraid when KNPB continues to be at the line of peaceful resistance . That is why peaceful protest blockade , activists were arrested and imprisoned , others were killed . But we believe that this struggle will continue to mushroom not only to foreign outposts West Papua , but to all the people of the world , because we really struggle .

Rest assured that the issue of West Papua continues to be the international spotlight . Suffering of the Papuan people kept filtering into the ears of the world , not because of international interest , but because the truth is that we continue to strive to be the spirit that moves the conscience of the world community . And in time , the world solidarity movement and the rise of West Papuan people will merely bullion colonialism and global capitalism that gripped the nation of Papua .

KNPB will continue to stand with the masses of the people of West Papua . KNPB will continue to foster a spirit of resistance . KNPB will continue to Fight , Fight and Fight !

To all patriots KNPB , which is spread across 23 lands on a land area KNPB West Papua , our Board congratulates KNPB Center celebrates anniversary KNPB 5th . God is the owner of the truth always protect and bless this struggle .

Regards rebellion
" We Must End "
