WPA Commander-in-Chief: Salam Natal 2021

Panglima Komando West Papua Army, Chief. Gen. Mathias Wenda beserta Seluruh Staf Pusat Pertahanan West Papua mengucapkan:

“Selamat Hari Natal 25 Desember 2021, dan selamat menyongsong tahun baru 1 Januari tahun 2022, kepada seluruh Pertahanan Kodap dari Sorong sampai Merauke dan umumnya Sorong sampai Samarai”

Yesus Kristus adalah Tuhan dan Allah Raja yang Kekal, namun Ia merendahkan diri menjelma menjadi manusia, lahir di Betlehem, di tempat yang hina.

Raja yang Kekal telah lahir dan datang kedalam dunia ini dengan tujuan utama adalah: Selamatkan umat manusia dari Penjajahan kekuasaan iblis, kemudian dengan rela Mengorbankan diri Nya, mati di kayu salib, dan pada hari ke tiga, Ia telah bangkit dari antara orang mati, dan naik ke surga. Kemudian Ia akan datang untuk menjemput umat manusia.

Saya pemegang Stafet Perjuangan Revolusi dan telah diberikan mandat dari Papa God melalui rakyat West Papua menghimbau kepada seluruh Pertahanan Kodap sangat Penting merenungkan dan aplikasikan makna Natal pada tahun ini, bahwa:

“Yesus Kristus adalah satu satunya Allah Pencipta dan Pengusaha atas alam semesta ini, namun Ia merendahkan diri dan rela berkorban bagi umatnya. Demikian pula Tuhan telah Pilih dan panggil anda sebagai seorang Pemimpin bangsa West Papua telah lama berjuang di atas tanah Papua. Anda bekerja adalah suatu pekerjaan mulai”

Saya tahu bahwa sudah lama Tentara Kolonial Indonesia melakukan operasi besar besaran di Puncak Jaya, Ndugama, Intan Jaya, Pegunungan Bintang dan Maybrat Sorong dan di mana mana terjadi penculikan, penangkapan berputar terus bagaikan siklus. Perlakuan Pemerintah republik Indonesia, TNI Polri ini hampir sama dengan perlakuan HERODES yang ada dalam kitab suci.

Herodes berusaha keras untuk membunuh Yesus Kristus adalah Tuhan dan Raja. Namun ia tidak berhasil. Demikian juga bangga kolonial Indonesia berusaha sekuat tenaga untuk membunuh dan membinasakan umat Allah yang merupakan rakyat West Papua, namun mereka tidak akan berhasil. Sebab perjuangan West Papua Merdeka adalah suatu PERJUANGAN SUCI, sebab misionaris Otto dan Geisler pertama kali menemukan pulau ini dan sebelum menginjak kaki didaratan mereka berdoa dan katakan bahwa:

“DEMI NAMA YESUS KRISTUS KAMI MEMPERSEMBAHKAN PULAU INI KEPADA PAPA GOD. JADI DEMI NAMA YESUS KRISTUS,KAMI MENGINJAK KAKI DI ATAS PULAU INI” ———

Catatan sejarah ini telah menunjukan bahwa, Pulau Papua dan seluruh rakyat serta Alam Papua adalah Milik Tuhan Yesus Kristus. Telah dimetraikan melalui darah Yesus Kristus.

Jadi dari Markas Pusat Pertahanan Komando West Papua Army, saya selaku Panglima Tertinggi Komando WPA sampaikan kepada seluruh basis Pertahanan Kodap se tanah Papua sampaikan renungan dalam perayaan Natal kelahiran sang Juru

Nit Allah’Ninom aret o!

Amen!

MerryChristmas #Natal #WestPapua #WestPapuaArmy

Gen. WPRA Amunggut Tabi: Semua Komando Wajib Bersatu di dalam WPA

Dari Markas Pusat Pertahanan, Kantor Sekretariat-Jenderal West Papua Army (WPA), Gen. Amunggut Tabi menyerukan kepada semua panglima Komando dan Komandan Gerilyawan Papua Merdeka dari Tentara Pembebasan Nasional Papua Barat (TPN PB), Tentara Nasional Papua Barat (TNPB) dan Tentara Revolusi West Papua (TRWP) untuk bersatu-padu membangun organisasi dan profesionalisme West Papua Army (WAP) di bawah Komando Panglima WPA Chief General Mathias Wenda.

Sebagai lembaga profesional yang telah berdiri dan bergerak berpuluh-puluh tahun, jauh sebelum kelahiran organisasi politik United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) dan Pemerintahan Sementara West Papua, maka kami menghimbau kepada semua Komando agar mempesatukan diri dan menyusub barisan.

Dalam militer kita hanya mengenal komunikasi satu arah, yaitu dari Panglima ke bawahan, tanpa pertanyaan, tanpa ragu-ragu, apalagi tidak ada bantahan. Karena pertanyaan dan bantahakan adalah periaku politisi dan politikus, yang tidak terdapat di dalam DNA militer di manapun di seluruh dunia.

Selain itu sejak pengangkatan Panglima Komando WPA tanggal 1 Mei 2021, maka siapa saja dan di mana saja kita berada, yang merasa diri Tentara yang berjuang untuk Papua Merdeka wajib menyatukan barusan, dan melakukan persiapan-persiapan untuk mengikuti dan tunduk kepada perintah serta Disiplin Militer West Papua Army.

Selaku penanggungjawab administrasi organisasi militer Papua Merdeka, kami serukan kepada semua panglima Komando TPN PB, TNWP dan TRWP untuk

  1. Mendata dan melaporkan semua Struktur Komando
  2. Mendata dan melaporkan daftar nama Pasukan, lengkap dengan pangkat dan Batallion Registry Number (BRN);

Mengingat dengan segera perlu dilakukan penyesuaian dalam rangka percepatan Pembentukan Badan Pertahanan dan Keamanan Pemerintahan Sementara West Papua, sebagai pelaksanaan mandat Undang-Undan Dasar (UUD) ULMWP 2020 yang telah ditindak-lanjuti dengan Instruksi Presiden Nomor 1/2021 tentang Percepatan Pembentukan Badan Pertahanan dan Keamanan.

Segala-sesuatu terkait dengan West Papua Army dapat dikomunikasikan ke Sekretariat-Jenderal WPA di army@westpapua.army

Press Release: West Papuan Provisional Government forms cabinet and departments in blow to Indonesian rule

The Provisional Government of West Papua has announced the formation of a full cabinet commanding 12 government departments throughout the country. The newly-created departments, ranging from Green State Policy to Defense, deepen the challenge to Indonesia’s illegal occupation of West Papua.

After announcing the formation of the Provisional Government on December 1, 2020, the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) has been building up governance capacities inside the colonised territory. The latest move comes after President Jokowi ordered a ‘crackdown’ in West Papua in response to the killing of an Indonesian intelligence chief.

A number of prominent West Papuans inside the country have been appointed to the cabinet, led by Interim President Benny Wenda and the Interim Prime Minister. The ministers will cover the following portfolios:

  • Department of Foreign Affairs
  • Department of Environment and Green State Policy
  • Department of Home Affairs
  • Department of Rights of All Beings and Justice
  • Department of Political Affairs
  • Department of Indonesia Affairs
  • Department of Melanesia Affairs
  • Department of Women Affairs
  • Department of Social and Cultural Affairs
  • Department of Police
  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Finance

Due to the intense political repression of the Indonesian regime, the names of the cabinet ministers are not being released. The departments are working underground in West Papua to undermine Indonesian rule from the inside. The Department of Foreign Affairs will command the ULMWP’s network of diplomatic missions across the world, including the EU, UK, US and Pacific.

The Department of Defense will command the united West Papua Army. The military commanders will include:

  • Supreme Commander Chief General Mathias Wenda
  • Deputy Supreme Commander General Goliat Tabuni
  • Chief of Staff Colonel Amos Sorondany
  • First Deputy Chief of Staff General Titus Murib
  • Second Deputy Chief of Staff General Brigen Fredinand Warobay
  • Third Deputy Chief of Staff General Abubakarak Omawi Wenda
  • Fourth Deputy Chief of Staff Mayor General Terianus Satto

The commanders today announce their commitment to operating within international humanitarian law and the laws of armed conflict, and their support for a peaceful approach to resolving the conflict.

The announcement comes on May 1, the anniversary of the Indonesian invasion of West Papua in 1963, commemorated annually by the West Papuan people.

Interim President Wenda said: ‘On the 58th anniversary of the illegal Indonesian invasion of our country, we take another step towards reclaiming our homeland. We are forming the world’s first Green State, able to protect the rights and life of all beings in place of an Indonesian occupation that has murdered hundreds of thousands of my people. Human rights and climate justice will be at the heart of our Provisional Government.’

West Papua Army Memperingati 1 Desember 2020

Di Markas Pusat Pertahanan (MPP), West Papua Revolutionary Army (WPRA), telah diperingati HUT Manifesto Politik Bangsa Papua, yang adalah tonggak sejarah kebangkitan bangsa Papua, yang disaksikan dan diakui oleh negara kolonial Belanda dan Australia.

Peringati 59 tahun manifesto Politik (1 Desember 1961 – 1 Desember 2020) disertai pengumuman Pemerintahan Sementara (United Liberation Movement for West Papua), menyusul pengesahan UUDS NRWP pada Oktober 2020, maka WPRA mengadakan upacara pengibaran bendera Sang Bintang Kejora pada hari Selasa (1 Desember 2020) di MPP WPRA

Sebagai pemegang Komando West Papua Army, Mathias Wenda, Chief Gen. WPRA memberikan sambutan kepada seluruh pasukan dan kepada para pemimpin ULMWP di seluruh dunia.

.Papua Merdeka! Papua Merdeka! Papua Merdeka! #ULMWP#WestPapuaArmy#WestPapua#Republic_of_WestPapua#FreeWestPapua#Referendum#ReferendumWestPapua

Gen. A. Tabi: Sebenarnya WPRA Tidak Termasuk Mendirikan ULMWP, Justru TPN PB OPM Yang Mendirikannya

  • Lalu apa yang terjadi selanjutnya pada tahun ini?
  • Mengapa TPN PB OPM pimpinan Sebby Sambom dan Jeffry Pagawak justru menolak ULMWP dan meneror pada petinggi ULMWP?

General WPRA Amunggut Tabi menyatakan pembentukan Undang-Undang Dasar Sementara (UUDS) untuk Negara Republik West Papua (NRWP), yang sementara ini digiring oleh United Liberation Movement for West papua (ULMWP) ialah sesuatu yang menarik dan harus disambut baik oleh semua pihak yang bercita-cita mendirikan NRWP yang merdeka dan berdaulat penuh.

Gen. Tabi mengatakan sebenarnya dari awal WPRA atau TRWP tidak termasuk dalam pembentukan ULMWP. Yang membentuk ULMWP itu ialah sayap politik dari komando TPN PB OPM (Seby Sambom dan Jeffry Pagawak), DM TPN/OPM (Jonah Wenda dan WPNCL) dan TNPB dari NRFPB. Free West Papua Campaign di bawah komando WPRA oleh Hon. Benny Wenda tidak terlibat dalam proses Saralana Declaration.

Gen. Tabi meneruskan,

“Kami di luar proses itu. Kami tidak terlibat. Alasannya karena kami tidak diundang, dan juga karena ada oknum yang kami curigai yang termasuk dalam proses ini sehingga kami memilih untuk tidak melibatkan diri.

Saat ditanyakan “Siapa oknum dimaksud?”, maka Tabi menjawab, oknum dimaksud bukan karena hal negatif, tetapi karena WPRA tahu bahwa kehadiran oknum dimaksud sudah dapat mewakili aspirasi WPRA.

Saat ditanya apakah pernah merencanakan untuk menolak ULMWP, Gen. Tabi mengatakan

“Kami sudah buat Surat Penolakan ULMWP, dan juga sudah disiapkan langkah politik untuk menggagalkan ULMWP.

Akan tetapi, lanjut Tabi, “atas perintah dari Mathias Wenda, Chief Genera WPRA, maka langkah itu dihentikan untuk ‘wait-and-see’, dan akhirnya kami memaksakan diri bergabung dengan ULMWP”

Melanesia.News menanyakan mengapa ada kata “memaksakan diri bergabung dengan ULMWP?”, Gen. Tabi menjawab,

Karena kami tidak diundang dan yang lebih penting karena kami bertindak sebagai penyeimbang, sambil menunggu proses lanjutan. Tetapi setelah kami membaca Konstitusi ULMWP, maka kami temukan ada hal-hal yang bisa dicapai dengan konstitusi itu, oleh karena itu kami diperintahkan Panglima Komando Revolusi untuk menindak-lanjuti dan mencari peluang untuk kami terlibat di dalamnya.

Ditanyakan siapa yang dimaksudkan dengan “kami” di sini? Maka dijawab “Kami dari Free West Papua Campaign“, pendiri dan ketuanya Hon. Benny Wenda sebagai Sekretaris-Jenderal dari Dewan Musyawarah Masyarakat Adat Koteka (DeMMAK)..

Tabi melanjutkan,

Siapapun orang Papua, baik yang hadir ataupun tidak hadir dalam pendirian ULMWP, baik yang masuk maupun tidak masuk dalam ULMWP, semua OAP hanya menginginkan satu hal, dan sepanjang siapapun yang dapat mewujudkan satu hal itu, maka orang Papua hanya berterimakasih dan beryukur kepada Allah.

Mau bendera berapa bintang, mau organisasi berjuang berapa lama, mau tokohnya siapa, orang Papua tidak memperdulikan. Orang Papua terdesak untuk harus keluar dari belenggu iblis yang mematikan nyawa orang Papua satu per satu, dan akhirnya memusnahkan ras Melanesia.

Melanesia.News menceritakan tentang ancaman yang ditebar oleh TPN PB OPM lewat media-media online dan media sosial, Gen. Tabi menjawab,

Itu tidak benar, itu bukan orang Papua yang buat begitu. Orang Papua punya sejarah perang suku di masa lalu. Tetapi selama 50 tahun terakhir orang Papua telah bersatu-padu secara roh dan emosi. Semua orang Papua hanya berdoa supaya NKRI keluar dari Tanah Papua. Tidak ada kebencian dan tidak ada teror di antara orang Papua. Cerita saling mencelakakan yang pernah terjadi pada generasi lampau itu disebabkan karena orang tua kami tidak paham permainan intelijen Indonesia. Sekarang kita sudah paham, kita sudah tamat dari situ.

Jadi, ancam-mengancam antara orang Papua sama sekali tidak ada saat ini. Semua orang Papua sangat menghargai satu sama lain dan semua orang Papua adalah orang Kristen yang tunduk kepada Hukum Kasih: yaitu kasih kepada Tuhan Allah dan Kasih kepada Sesama Manusia seperti kasih kepada diri sendiri.

Rumusnya jelas, jangan kacaukan rumus itu. Perampok dan pembunuh bangsa Papua hanya satu piha, dari satu arah: NKRI, orang Indonesia. Jangan tuduh adik-adik dan anak-anak Papua sebagai penebar teror

Chief Gen. WPA Mathias Wenda: Syukur Bagimu! Tuhan untuk UUDS NRWP

Three Poisons in Free West Papua Campaigns (2)

General WPRA Amunggut Tabi stated in one of the briefings to his troops at the Central Headquarters of West Papua Revolutionary Army (WPRA) at Yako Village, Papua New Guinea that there are three poisons that have destroyed our campaigns to free West Papua, namely egoism, gossiping, and fear.

We have discussed the first poison in previous article. Now we look into the second poison called “Nabok-Kabok”, which literally means, talking about you and at the same time talking about me. This is the first social poison, stems from the first personal poison: ego.

The second Poison is called “Nabok-Kabok” and “Nebi-Kebi”

In Lani language of West Papua we call “nabok-kabok” telling bad stories about other people.’meaning “gossiping”, talking about fellow human, and talking about others without any clear basis and facts, we just gossip around, baseless talk about other human beings. We spread hatred, suspicion and create tensions by spreading wrong or baseless information about other people and about what they are doing.

The Lani concept of “gossip” literally means I spread gossips about you and you also spread gossips about me. There is reciprocal dynamic, cause and effect, give and receive, natural act of balancing occurring automatically.

There is hatred in gossip and there is lie in gossip, both caused by “an-an”, the previous poison that we already discussed. Gossip is groundless, baseless information about something against someone. The purpose of gossiping is to undermine someone that were are gossiping about, and demean whatever they do and even whoever they are.

In addition to lie and hatred in gossiping, there is also an element of slander in gossiping, i.e, spreading false information about someone else or something. Most gossip contain slander, but there are also gossip that contain truth. The problem here is the purpose of gossiping, not on whether or not the information is true or false.

In Lani language, it is called “nabok-kabok“, which means psychologically, that when I am telling stories about others, I am also telling stories about myself to others. In other words, by gossiping, I am showing to others who I am. If I am telling bad stories about others in my gossip, then I am as bad as the gossip. If I am a dog, I will bark, I will not whistle. Just as simple as that. If I have a problem, I will always talk about problems.

Nabok-Kabok in Free West Papua Campaign

There is no time to mention gossiping among West Papuan leaders, activists and organisations that has been happening along our independence struggle, but we want to focus on what is happening right now, per October 2020.

  1. There is gossip from the ULMWP that Octovianus Motte does not like and does not accept Benny Wenda as the chair of the ULMWP Executives, and therefore, he is creating and organising other groups against the ULMWP in general and Benny Wenda.
  2. There is gossip that Indonesia is using TPN PB OPM to destroy ULMWP and Free West Papua Campaign, and at the same time, TPN PB OPM also blame that ULMWP is an Indonesian sponsored organisation that aims at stopping West Papua from gaining independence.
  3. There is gossip that West Papua Army is an Indonesian sponsored military command, and at the same time all commanders who joined the West Papua Army blame the TPN PB OPM as fully funded by the Indonesian BIN and Kopassus.
  4. There is gossip that the “14-Stars Group” or NRFPB is already in full control of the ULMWP and that at the end of the day a free and independent West Papua will not be The Republic of West Papua but it will be The Republic of West Melanesia.
  5. There is also gossip that Buktar Tabuni and Lukas Enembe already signed agreement in order to accept dialogue to be conducted between Indonesia and Jakarta.
  6. There is gossip that Jeffry Bomanak is fully paid by Indonesia, he gets his salaries from Indonesian consulate in Vanimo and Port Moresby. Likewise there is also gossip that WPRA and WPA are fully paid by Indonesia through various business activities carried out in West Papua.
  7. There is gossip that Menase Tabuni dan Markus Haluk are paid by Indonesia inside the ULMWP in order to stop West Papua from gaining full independence.

The list can continue to hundreds and even thousands of gossips spreading around Melanesians in West Papua. We call all these “gossips”, and many of them contain slander or defamation

Defamation (also known as calumny, vilification, libel, slander or traducement) is the oral or written communication of a false statement about another that unjustly harms their reputation and usually constitutes a tort or crime.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defamation

“Nabok-Kabok” nen apuluk/ agaluk “Nebi-Kebi Endake”: Gossiping brings about Divisions

Free West Papua Campaign is full of slander, baseless and even false accusations that costed so many lives in the hands of fellow Melanesians. We have spent more time and energy spreading rumours and gossiping about each other than talking about Indonesia and what they are doing against our struggle.

Free West Papua Campaign without slander, rumours and gossiping will cost us less time, less energy, less money, and no lives.

Gossiping has divided us up. Gossiping has destroyed us personally and our groups. Gossiping has poisoned this holy and morally, democratically, legally and spiritually justifiable struggle.

Yes, the result of gossiping is division. And division is the goal of the Satan, Lucifer. As we recall the Biblical story, we see the Lucifer’s ambition to become the same as God has failed. His work to colonise human beings also failed because Jesus has died on the cross and has risen from the death, and has ascended to have, and have promised to come back to judge and throw him and his followers to hell, and take all believers to heaven.

Whenever there is gossiping, of course there is division. We recall the Biblical history. When Lucifer came to Eve, he started gossiping about God, by twisting some words from the Bible, which caused Eve to twist and then misinterpret the outcome of falling into the Devil’s trap. This gossiping aused deadliest separation between God and men. Human race fell into sin and became separated from God.

The Bible in Genesis 1:1-3 records the conversation between Eve and Lucifer as follows

Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’ ”
2 The woman answered the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden,
3 but about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You must not eat of it or touch it, or you will die.’ ”…

<https://biblehub.com/genesis/3-2.htm&gt;

The question from Lucifer added “any tree” even though God only said “only one tree” that human should never eat. In reply, Eve said, “…you must not eat of it or touch it, or you will die”. God never said anything about touching it, He spoke about eating it. There are additions to the truth. This brought about sin. This brought about division between God and human race.

Exactly the same pattern operates today in our lives, particularly in our campaigns to Free West Papua. When we add ingredients to our cooking, then the taste of the food changes from its original pure taste into new taste, from united, loving and kindness in Jesus Christ, as fellow human beings and fellow Melanesians into division hatred and even threat to each other.

What a game we are in!

Psychologically, the basis for gossiping is still the same, “the ego”. We are in service to our own ego

And the outcome of gossiping is also the same “we fall into sin”, we commit sin, we become sinners. It divides us up, it indicates that we are not trustworthy, it shows that we are murderer, we have wickedness in our hearts, we are full of hatred against others.

And the outcome of gossiping is we exhaust our energy, we waste our energy and finally we reach nothing but hatred, division and failure.

  • Egocentric person or leader will be happy and will make gossiping as the his/ hear staple food.
  • Egocentric person or leader will be happy to see his competitor get nothing, his/ her opponent is kicked out or disliked or hated by others.
  • Egocentric person or leader will start his discussions by pointing problems and mistakes committed by his opponents or his potential competitor.

“Ego” is the source of slander and gossip. Ego is the mother of gossiping. Spreading unsubstantiated and false information about others serves the ego of the person spreading it, talking about it, and enjoying it.

In other words, anybody or any leader who are not egocentric will never spread rumours and engaged in gossiping about other leaders, fellow Independence fighters.

“Nabok-Kabok” is a Social Decease, Stems from Personal Poison Called “Ego”

It was mentioned before that “gossiping” is a poison, but it is actually a disease. “a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location…” <https://languages.oup.com/google-dictionary-en/&gt;

The famous Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, “A disease is a particular abnormal condition that negatively affects the structure or function of all or part of an organism, and that is not due to any immediate external injury.” <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disease&gt;

“Nabok-Kabok” is a social decease, stems from poison number 1: the “ego”. It is a personal poison, that produces a social poison called “nabok-kabok”.

The outcome of this disease creates a new poison called “slander, rumours and gossip”. So gossip become poison when the people who gossip become addicted to it, and then become used to gossiping, and finally they “enjoy gossiping”.

“Nabok-Kabok” Creates “Nabi-Kebi” as is the Deadliest Social Poison in a Struggle for Collective Cause

As stated above, Lucifer crated gossip about what God has said about fruits in the Garden. Even also said something in addition to what God really said. This turns and shifting from truth into gossip created division between God and human. The same formula applies to human lives. When we spread rumours, create slanders, start gossiping each other, we are creating a social disease called “division”.

The term “nebi-kebi” in Lani language means, I do not like you and you do not like me, I hate you and you hate me. This creates what Indonesians called “musuh dalam kelambu”, i.e., enemies in our own sleeping nets.

“Nebik-Kebi” comes from the Seed called “Ego”, through the root called “Fear”, into the Stem Called “Nabok-Kabok” that BRINGS ABOUT “DEath”

That is the “death” of human beings, the death of a struggle, death of the collective mission and efforts. Death to the mission, death to the vision, death to the collective struggle, and even death to the persons gossiping.

The cause and effect continues, “nebi-kebi” causes hatred and other destructive and deadly minds, rhetoric and actions. “Nebi-kebi” can cause killing each other among fellow independence fighters.

Now is YOUR JOB Readers

  1. Notice when Benny Wenda speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  2. Notice when Octovianus Motte speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  3. Notice when Chief Gen. WPRA Mathias Wenda speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  4. Notice when Jeffry Pagawak speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  5. Notice when Victor Yeimo speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  6. Notice when Sebby Sambom speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  7. Notice when Egianus Kogeya speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  8. Notice when Nggoliar Tabuni speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  9. Notice when Buktar Tabuni speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody
  10. Notice when any leader speaks to you and make a public statement about anything or anybody

Pay close attention to their choice of words, their attention, their gestures or their logic. Look at what they say,

  • Are they really talking against Indonesia?
  • Are they really talking to free West Papua?
  • Are they doing something else other than the above two?

This to avoid in this kind of exercise are as follows:

  1. Kill your personal and group ego first. If not you will find it hard to accept what is written here. If you find it hard, you must pray to God to forgive and to forget.
  2. Pray for forgiveness, forgive the person who is talking and ask for forgiveness for yourself.
  3. Focus on whether or not the speaker is talking about
    1. “to free West Papua”? or
    2. to fight againt Indonesia”? or
    3. to fight each other among Melanesians ourselves?

Last Note

  • What should be done with the poison of egocentric leader?
  • What should be done with the poison of egocentric military command?
  • What is the third poison?
  • What is the Biblical references to gossip, slander and spreading rumours?
  • What should be done with gossips, rumours and divisions already existing withing Melanesians from West Papua in this struggle for independence from Indonesian neo-colonial rule?

West Papua unrest: Shootout prompts border closure

Land and sea access between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea has been closed after a shootout at the border.

This follows reports of an Indonesian troop build-up along the border from communities in PNG’s West Sepik province.

Indonesian-ruled West Papua has been gripped by weeks of protests and violent unrest which has left dozens of people dead.

Amid a security forces crackdown, concern has been raised in neighbouring PNG about another potential influx of West Papuan refugees

PNG’s Immigration and Citizenship Authority has advised that following a shootout the border is closed to nationals from both sides until further notice.

It said shopping at the Batas market, close to the border on the Indonesian side, as well as movement into the West Papuan capital Jayapura was “completely banned”.

Earlier this week, PNG’s EMTV reported villagers at Wutung on the PNG side of the border as saying school children were ordered to return home.

Usually, most land and sea cross-border movement occurs around Papua New Guinea’s north coast.
