  1. I would like to receive more news such as this to spread through my social contacts mainly in Australia and other countries. While the government in Australia has always supported the Indonesian government, many Australians like myself do not!
    I was in the Australian Army when Australian troops trained Indonesian troops in Australia. I am sure that this has been ongoing. That makes our nation also responsible for the thousands of deaths in country since.

    1. Bill, thank you for sharing and spreading the news. Keep up the great job mate! We will you informed of any latest news we post on this site.

    1. D Burns, a good thought provoking questions. Sadly, millions of people around the world have also been asking the similar questions over many years, but the situation remains the same. What can we say further? FREEDOM! PNG received it on a golden plate. Our fellow Melanesian brothers and sisters in West Papua are still fighting and the blood of the lost ones are still calling our to the world for freedom. If UN can not come in and help for over many years past. Who else, nations in this world have greater power to stop the Indonesians. PNG is such simple, powerless nation, but firmly believe in the Creator of the Universe. The God who builds up kingdoms and tears down great powers and kingdoms is watching and hearing the cry of the West Papuans. HE will do the impossibles possible to the people of West Papua.

    What is the world doing about this. PNG, these are our wantoks, our relatives our neighbors culturally.

    It is a bloody massacre out in our faces.

    1. Augustine Banovo, United Nation has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the call of Freedom for West Papua. The act of the UN indirectly telling the Indonesian that what you are doing, we have not much to say about it, go ahead and do what ever you like to do to the West Papuans, because this is your country and they are your people, its a domestic issue so handle it yourself.
