Jakarta. Members of an Indonesian military border security task force along the country's border with Papua New Guinea have discovered another marijuana plantation in Kalilapar Village, Keerom, Papua.
The plantation was found just 1.4 kilometers from the Kalimao Post, with at least 38 plants standing up to two and a half meters tall.
Military official Col. Czi Berlin H announced the discovery on Saturday (02/04) in Jakarta, saying it is the third time the unit has found plantations in the area.
“Personnel in the Kalimao Post, led by Post Commander First Lt. Inf. Buyung, assisted by an Intel Officer Capt. Inf. Mulyo Hartono, are developing the case to find the owner, as well as searching for other plantations,” Berlin said.
Officers in the border areas have instructed to patrol the area and conduct sweeps to collect information for investigations.
“It is proven to be effective. The task force has discovered marijuana fields, secured rifles and 30 rounds of sharp ammunitions from the sweeping,” Berlin added.

2) Historic political meeting about West Papua self-determination to take place in UK
APRIL 3, 2016

On May 3rd 2016 at Westminster, London one of the most significant events in West Papua’s history will be taking place.The International Parliamentarians for West Papua, members of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua, legal & human rights experts, and International Government representatives will be coming together and announcing a call for an Internationally Supervised Vote for West Papua.
The meeting will be held on May 3rd as this marks almost exactly 53 years to the day that the Indonesian government first took control of West Papua on 1st May 1963 (known to West Papuans as the Day of Terror).
West Papuan self-determination was violated in 1969 through the so called “Act of Free Choice”, known to West Papuans as the Act of NO Choice. This was supposed to be an Independence Referendum for all West Papuans but was nothing but a sham. The people of West Papua are now calling for a new Independence referendum in an Internationally Supervised Vote.
We want YOU to join , and help us to make sure the world hears us.
This month we are calling on all of our supporters across the globe to join in our April actions and to build momentum for the May 3rd call for an Internationally Supervised Vote for West Papua.
