3) President Yudhoyono to open UNAOC Global Forum

Mon, June 30 2014 08:52 | 619 Views

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is scheduled to officially open the Sixth Global Forum of United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) which will be held in Bali on August 29 - 30, 2014. 

"The privilege of hosting such an important event is an acknowledgement of Indonesias effort in promoting harmony among civilization through among others an active role in interfaith and inter-civilization dialogues and inter-media dialogues, even before the AOC was established," the Indonesian foreign affairs ministry said in a media advisory on the UNAOC Global Forum.

The Bali Forum will be attended by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, the UN High Representative of the UNAOC Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser as well as prominent speakers from governments and non-governments alike. 

The meeting will be preceded by the UNAOC Youth Forum bringing together around 200 youth delegates from all over the world.

The AOC was initiated by the then UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan, on 14 July 2005 and co-sponsored by the former Prime Minister of Spain, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

It is aimed at promoting "Harmony among Civilizations" and to bridge the gap between Islam and the West. Furthermore, AOC endorses the common political will and to mobilize common actions against prejudice, misperception, and to eliminate extremism in societies. 

In order to achieve the said purposes, the theme of the Global Forum is "Unity in Diversity" focusing on four pillars, namely Education, Youth, Media and Migration. The theme is based on Indonesias national motto of "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" or "Unity in Diversity". The motto reflects the outlook of Indonesias Founding Fathers which embraces the wealth of Indonesias cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity. 

The Sixth UNAOCs Global Forum in Bali will be participated by 114 members of UNAOCs Group of Friends (GoF), including 11 state leaders who have been invited by President Yudhoyono.

The 11 state leaders who have been invited are from Spain, Turkey, Brazil, Qatar, Austria, Myanmar, The Peoples Republic of China, India, Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea, and South Africa.

The first UNAOCs Global Forum took place in Madrid, Spain, in 2008, and was held through a common consideration in condemning extremist actions, such as bomb attacks in Bali, Madrid, Egypt, Istanbul, and London.

The governor of PNG's National Capital District, Powes Parkop, says it is an encouraging step for his people's cause.
"For the people of West Papua it's like when the Americans landed on the moon. Big giant step that of course will not solve everything in one go but hopefully will open the doors to the ultimate desire of our people."
Powes Parkop says he's confident the conditions will be met.

5) West-Papua: Activists Face Intimidation

Papuan activist groups that plan to commemorate on the region’s proclaimed independence by Papuan leaders on 1 July 1971 are facing intimidation tactics by the Indonesian military. 
Below is an article by Radio New Zealand International:

There are reports of pressure from the Indonesian military on Papuan activist groups ahead of a planned rally in the provinces tomorrow [1 July 2014].
July the 1st marks the day in 1971 when Papuan leaders proclaimed the region's independence from Jakarta.
The Free West Papua Movement was planning activities in Jayapura, including hoisting the Morning Star flag.
But the Antara News reports Major General Christian Zebua saying soldiers will shoot any independence supporters who attend.
A spokesperson for the Australia West Papua Association, Joe Collins, says the intimidation tactics by security forces belie Indonesia's claim of being a democracy.
He says the activists' freedom of opinion and expression is being quashed.
