Komando Pasukan Operasi Khusus WPRA Siap Berdoa Puasa untuk Pemulihan Papua

Sebagai bagian dari operasi khusus, maka dari Markas Pusat Pertahanan Tentara Revolusioner West Papua (TRWP) atau West Papua Revoluationary Army (WPRA) lewat Komandan Operasi Khusus mengumumkan kepada dunia secara umum dan khususnya kepada bangsa Papua bahwa

Kami dari Komando Pasukan Operasi Khusus West Papua Revolutionary Army telah siap dan akan bergabung secara massal dalam Doa dan Puasa yang diumumkan Jaringan Doa Rekonsiliasi untuk Pemulihan Papua.

Menurut Pasukan Operasi Khusus, unit Komando Opsus dibentuk tahun 2010 dengan tujuan untuk menjalankan operasi-operasi khusus, terutama operasi-operasi di luar kegiatan militer dalam rangka memfasilitasi kegiatan operasi militer, dalam bentuk operasi secara rohani, operasi dalam bindang ekonomi dan operasi-operasi di luar jalur militer lainnya.

Didapati dalam perjalanan waktu bahwa sejak pertengahan 2020 telah muncul Jaringan Doa untuk Pemulihan dan Rekonsiliasi Bangsa Papua yang dikepalai oleh salah satu orang tokoh perjuangan bangsa Papua, yaitu Selvius Bobii.

Menurut Komando Operasi Khusus WPRA, seluruh pasukan Operasi Khusus akan terlibat dalam doa puasa selama 40 hari mulai 4 April sampai 14 Mei 2021.

Komando Pasukan Khusus WPRA menghimbau kepada seluruh pasukan gerilyawan Papua Merdeka untuk terus berjuang secara fisik dengan mengangkat senjata, dan dalam waktu yang sama pula haruslah ada pasukan khusus yang berperang secara rohani, untuk melawan principalities dan empires yang menguasai lapisan surga kedua di angkasa, di mana Lucifer bertahta dan menjalankan pemerintahannya.

Doa-doa untuk pemulihan, rekonsiliasi dan kemenangan atas Indonesia haruslah tembus sampai kepada Allah. Dan untuk itu perlu banyak berdoa dan berpuasa. Mulai tahun 2021, kita jadikan sebagai tahun doa dan puasa.

Gen. Amunggut Tabi Condems Church Bombings in Makassar, Indonesia

And Promises West Papua Army is established Based on Brotherly Love that Promotes Harmony, norms, values and systems Melanesians inherited from our Ancestors

General WPRA Amunggut Tabi condemns the church bombings in Makassar, Indonesia that have caused several Christians injured and God’s place of worship once again under terror condition.

Gen. Tabi continues West Papua is being marginalized and treated badly, the humanity of Melanesians are degraded, the independence fighters are hunted day and night, villages are bombed, villages are killed on daily basis, firstly and primarily because Indonesia wants to expand its Islamic Empire across the South Pacific.

Indonesia knows that West Papua is the entry-gate of the Islamic Empire into Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian territories in the South Pacific.

The “terror” and “cover-up” approach has been used by Indonesia since Indonesia’s independence in keeping international support for its occupation over various indigenous islands and lands in what is imagined by Javanese Mataram Empire as “Indonesia”: Sumatera, Borneo, Bali, Madura, Sulawesi, Moluccas, Nusa Tenggara and New Guinea.

This bombing is orchestrated to attract support from the United States President, Joe Biden, to supports its terror unit within Indonesia’s the military and police commands.

This bombing once again proves that Indonesia is not a democratic country, that Indonesia hates Christians, and that there are many home-grown terrorists groups and agents within the community, government agencies and also very actively involved in military and police ranks.

Gen. Tabi reiterates that the USA surely knows how terrorism are grown and looked after in Indonesia. Terror groups are important to combat human rights campaigners in Indonesia, to eliminate independence movement in Aceh, West Papua, Moluccas, Bali, Madura, Riau and Borneo. Terror groups are trained by the military in West and Central Java. And they are deployed into West Papua and other Christian provinces of Indonesia.

Gen. Tabi says West Papua nation-state is a Green Nation-State, a Blue Country, a country that respects and protects human rights, and will never allow anyone to band or bomb any churches, stupa, mosques or any sacred sites belongs to tribes and indigenous peoples. West Papua will recognize and protect relations with God as the primary and pre-requisite for relations with other beings and with each other.

He says no Melanesian fighters in West Papua will touch the sacred sites and worship places at any time, with any reason whatsoever. Certain religions and religious groups in Indonesia are being prepared and trained by Indonesian military and police agencies to obliterate Christianity in West Papua and Melanesia.

Catholic and Christian Churches in Indonesia must support Free West Papua Campaign. West Papua now has a Provisional Government that has Christian Ministry Department/ Minister that is particularly funded and dedicated to Evangelise Indonesia and win Indonesia to Jesus Christ.

Gen. Tabi condemns this bombing as barbaric, inhuman, degrading humanity and act of immoral and uncivilized deed.

Gen. A. Tabi: No More Unconstitutional Moves

From the Central Headquarters of the West Papua Revolutionary Army (WPRA), in the names of God Almighty, in the name of Jesus Christ, the Most High Commander in Chief of World Revolutions at all times, in the name of the Holy Spirit that gives us wisdom, knowledge and power, Gen. WPRA Amunggut Tabi invited all Melanesians from and in West Papua to celebrate 1 December 2020 as the historic National Awakening Day for West Papua as a collective entity called Papuan people, West Papua nation-state and New Guinea crown pigeon as our national state emblem.

“West Papua independence movement has already legalized a provisional constitution to rule above all interests and this law is the supreme commander of all independence movements and organisations. The Legislative Council of the United Liberation Movement for Wet Papua (ULMWP) has passed the Provisional Constitution in October 2020.

We have now entered into a new era of our independence movement: organised, unified, modern and constitutional government that leads our independence movement.

No more factionalism! No more stigma of separatists! No more branding of illegal groups or trouble-makers! No more law-breakers! It is time now to call Indonesia and her troops as illegal, trouble-makers and illegitimate representation of our Melanesian will and aspirations.

West Papua Army is now a legal combat troops to free a colonised territory of West Papua and hear peoples.

Let us unite as a people, with one goal: to free West Papua, to free Indonesia, to free Melanesia, to free the world from colonialism and from environmental crises.

says Gen. WPRA Amunggut Tabi, one of the Commands of WPA

The isle of New Guinea has the answer to global environmental problems. We Melanesians in West Papua have the legitimate experience and knowledge to contribute to the world.

December 1st, 1961 is the day where our national flag, national anthem and state emblem were officially installed, recognised by the colonial governments of both the Netherlands and Australia.

We invite all Melanesians in West Papua and from West Papua, to act according to the rule of law, subdue ourselves, our differences and our struggle to the constitution, set aside our differences, unite ourselves with one spirit: One People – One Soul!

All the praise, worship and honour to Him only! Let us surrender to His Plan, His Power and His Protection!

Amunggut Tabi, Gen. WPA: 1 Desember Hari Kebangkitan Nasional Papua 01

Dr. Jack Wanggai menulis di status halaman Facebook sebagai berikut

REMEMBER!History that we must straighten for the nation’s generation today.December 1st is NOT Independence day for Melanesian Papuans

Artinya: Ingat! Sejarah harus diluruskan untuk generasi bangsa hari ini. Tanggal 1 Desember BUKAN hari kemerdekaan untuk orang Melanesia Papua.

Amunggut Tabi, General WPA ketika ditanya di MPP TRWP mengatakan bahwa selama ini telah terjadi kekeliruan fatal di antara bangsa Papua, yang disebabkan pertama-tama oleh kolonial Indonesia, dan kedua karena orang Papua sendiri tidak sekolah baik, maka mudah dimanipulasi.

Karena dua alasan ini, maka bangsa Papua telah diajarkan bahwa 1 Desember 1961 adalah Hari Proklamasi Kemerdekaan Papua. Dalam hal ini secara konseptual dua kesalahan. Atau bisa dikatakan juga dua kebodohan.

Kesalahan atau kebodohan pertama, karena kita menyebut hari proklamasi tetapi tanpa Teks Proklamasi adalah sebuah kesalahan fatal atau kebodohan yang patut kita tertawai diri sendiri. Jadi, dengan demikian, kita bisa menertawakan diri sendiri dengan mudah bahwa kita sudah salah menganggap suatu hari tanpa teks proklamasi kita pandang sebagai HUT kemerdekaan

Kesalahan atau kebodohan kedua karena wacana 1 Desember HUT Proklamasi ini dikeluarkan oleh NKRI sendiri, bukan oleh para pejuang Papua Merdeka. Ini murni gagasan NKRI yang dikeluarkan lewat FOREGI – PDP, yaitu dua organisasi bentukan NKRI sendiri.

Bangsa Papua memang dasar tidak tahu diri secara jelas. Mudah ditipu, muda tertipu dan juga mudah percaya. Dibilang iblis itu baik, orang Papua bisa percaya. Dibilang “kata revolusi itu komunis punya”, orang Papua juga percaya. Dibilang “Papua harus baku-bunuh baru merdeka”, orang Papua juga masih saja percaya.

Jadi, singkatnya, menurut Dr. Benny Giay, bangsa Papua memang memenuhi syarat untuk dijajah.

Doa Undangan Terbuka untuk Octovianus Motte, Jeffry Pagawak, Victor Yeimo dan Sebby Sambom

Dalam doa bersama di Markas Pusat Pertahanan Tentara West Papua di Yako, Vanimo, Papua New Guinea, di antara para perwira Tentara Revolusi West Papua Gen. WPA Amunggut Tabi menyampaikan doa kepada Allah Bapa, Allah Anak dan Allah Roh Kudus sebagai berikut.

Di dalam nama Allah Bapa, Allah Anak, dan Allah Roh Kudus, Aku sebagai hamba-Mu, General WPRA Amunggut Tabi datang menghadap, Lapor, Ya Yesus Panglima Mahatinggi Komando Revolusi semesta alam sepanjang masa.

Lapor, saya mengundang Engkau, datanglah kerajaan-Mu, jadilah kehendak-Mu dalam perjuangan Papua Merdeka, sehingga apa yang terjadi dalam perjuangan ini bukan kehendak manusia, bukan kehendak oknum, bukan kehendak pribadi, tetapi adalah kehendak Tritinggal Allah, kehendak bersama dan kehendak untuk merdeka dan bebas bagi bangsa Papua, wilayah West Papua.

Lapor, di dalam Nama Allah Bapa, Allah Anak dan Allah Roh Kudus, izinkan saya mengundang lewat doa ini, kepada

  1. Tuan mantan Ketua ULMWP, Dr. Octovianus Motte, di Amerika Serikat
  2. Tuan Victor Yeimo, mantan Ketua KNPB, di Tanah Papua
  3. Tuan Jeffry Pagawak, di Tanah Papua
  4. Tuan Sebby Sambom di Tanah Papua.

agar mereka datang bergabung dengan orang tua mereka, Mathias Wenda, Chief Gen. WPRA, dan bergabung ke dalam ULMWP untuk membawa perjuangan bangsa Papua memasuki tahapan-tahapan penyelesaian pendirian negara, sebelum berhadapan dengan NKRI.

Saya tahu bahwa NKRI menginginkan UUDS NRWP ini tidak disahkan pada tahun ini sebelum UU Otsus disahkan untuk memperpanjang pendudukan NKRI atas tanah Papua.

Saya tahu bahwa ada organisasi dan oknum di dalam ULMWP mendukung program NKRI secara terang-terangan. Saya sudah tahu nama mereka, dan saya juga telah tahu di mana mereka bertemu dan mereka membicarakan apa saja dengan NKRI. Akah tetapi itu tidak penitng. yang terpenting ialah bahwa kami semua satu bangsa, satu tujuan: One People – One Soul. Dan atas dasar itu Engkau tahu, saya mengasihi mereka dengan sungguh-sungguh dari dalam hati saya.

Ya, Yesus, Engkau sebagai Raja Damai yang akan datang memerintah segenap alam semesta sepanjang masa, yang sedang kami persiapkan di dalam Negara Republik West Papua untuk kedatangan-Mu.

Ya Yesus, Engkau tahu, bahwa Negara Republik West Papua ialah Negara yang didirikan dengan cita-cita untuk menghadirkan kerajaan Allah di Bumi, seperti di surga, bukan untuk keadilan dan kemakmuran materialis duniawi, bukan untuk kemerdekaan dan kebebasan jasmaniah yang fana, bukan untuk keadilan sosial bagi seluruh rakyat yang bersifat sangat duniawi. Engkau telah lihat dasar pemikiran dan rancangan Undang-Undang yang secara langsung mengundang keterlibatan-Mu secara legal-formal negara dalam perjuangan ini.

Iblis masih ada, dia bekerja menebar kecurigaan, menebar ke-akuan yang mematikan, dan menebarkan rasa takut, rasa saling mencurigai, rasa saling membenci dan rasa saling mendendam, yang tidak sehat dan tidak beradab.

Dalam Darah Yesus saya patahkan dan saya hancurkan segala kuasa kegelapan.

Sampaikanlah undanganku yang sangat pribadi ini kepada saudara-saudara-ku sebangsa, seiman, sependiritaan dan senasib.

Tuhan, lihat hatiku! Lihat pikiranku! Sampaikanlah hati ini, perasaan ini, cinta-kasih ini, kasih Allah yang ada di dalam hati kami kepada saudara-saudara-ku di mana-pun mereka berada.

Hadirlah dan nyatakan kehendak-Mu. Tunjukkan kuasa-Mu.

Engkah telah datang ke dalam dunia ini dan mati lalu bangkit mengalahkan iblis, yang memisahkan kami dari Allah, yang memisahkan kami suku-suku di Tanah Papua, mendamaikan kami dengan Allah dan mendamaikan kami di antara suku-suku di Tanah Papua.

Kepentingan kami, kehendak kami, pemikiran kami, kedudukan kami, perjuangan kami semuanya hanya sementara untuk di dunia ini selama kami hidup di dunia ini.

Kami berdoa demi kepentingan hidup kekal. Kami minta karena kewajiban kami sebagai orang Kristen, bukan karena kewajiban di dalam posisi kami secara politik ataupun militer. Itu sama sekali sementara. Yang kekal ialah kebenaran bahwa kami hanyalah manusia, yang telah dilahirkan, dan sekarang hidup dan kemudian akan mati, dan roh kami akan hidup di alam baka Bukan sebagai orang Yali, bukan sebagai orang Walak, bukan sebagai orang Mee, bukan sebagai orang Lani, bukan sebagai orang Papua, bukan sebagai orang Indonesia, tetapi sebagai anak-anak Allah, satu babptisan, satu kasih, satu pengharapn.

Dalam Nama Allah Bapa, Allah Anak dan Allah Roh Kudus hamba-Mu berdoa. Kiranya kabulkan-lah doa kami ini. Berbisik dan berteriaklah ke dalam hati dan pikiran semua bangsa Papua, secara khusus saucara-saudara sebangsa, setanah air, seperjuangan dan senasib yang kaimi sebutkan secara khusus dalam doa ini.

Dalam Nama Allah Bapa, Allah Anak dan Allah Roh Kudus! Amin!

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

Gen. WPRA A. Tabi: There is No Struggle without Internal Conflict, So Do these 3 Things to Celebrate Life

The only way to end the internal conflict is to “stop from struggle” or the most extreme one is to “end” this life. Death is the beginning of peace, and birth is the beginning of conflict.

I mean conflict in a positive way, the act of balancing, of pulling and pushing, of up and down, of day and night, or male and female, of pros and cons, of sad and happy, and so on.

Gen. Tabi said there should be persons or groups that do not agree and even refuse the existence and activities of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP). We should not consider this as a problem, but we have to treat it as a task of this life to go through.

In other words, Tabi says if there is no dynamic of push – pull, up-down, like-dislike in whatever we do then you need to question “Am I alive? Am I doing something or not doing anything?”

So, he explains, when anyone disagrees with you, the first thing to do is “to thank God!”, for this life that you have does not belong to you, but you are just having this life right now, given by God, and He will take this life away from the body we have right now.

Thank Him for this life! Thank for ULMWP! thank for what we do in this life! Thank for what others are doing to us! Thank for all of it!

Then, the second thing to do is “send petition to God of what is happening right now, why and what you think about it.” If someone wants to attack you, or gossiping about you, or talking good things about you and praise you, then you must do the same thing to both parties, “Thank God and tell God about what is happening”.

Tell him everything and be glad God hears your prayers.

One important thing to remember is that the final decision should come from God. We only send petitions to Him. It is His will that should be and always be done on this life. Acknowledge this Law of Nature, the absolute Truth of God and accept it.

The third thing you should do is “forgive and forget everybody> Forgive and forget those who love, praises you! Forgive and forget those who hate, gossip and threatens you”. You forgive all, and forget all, without sentiments, without discrimination.

Tabi concinues, once you forgive and forget, both the ones that make you proud and happy and those who make you feel sad, unhappy and angry, then you will be become part of the pull-push, drag-push, up-down, bad-god, sad-happy mood and you become free from all, and become still and become pure.

You will not in a mode of fighting against the reality, but rather one of the participants in the pulse. You become yourself, not the self that others said about you or to you, and even not as you think about yourself.

If you try to act against or re-act on the opposite direction, then you are actually creating trouble for yourselves. When you pull something, you must accept that there will be push. At the time you throw a ball up, then you must know that the ball will fall down. When you do good things on this life, you must accept that there will be negative side of it. When you do your best to your people, be sure that there will be people who will not be thankful, but conversely will mock you.

That only thing we can be certain about in this life is that everything is self-balancing, automatically pulses. There is no life without pulsation, the balancing act according to the law of nature, law of life. When there is no one is against you or for you, then you must understand and accept that in fact you are not doing anything at all. There is no life in you! You are dead!

So celebrate life! Life is about struggle, moving, flowing, welcoming and refusing, happy and unhappy, worried and certain, calm and nervous, angry and love, …

Just welcome it! Just accept it. Just smile to it! Just celebrate this life!

This is the voice of the “Revolutionary Army”, that is, the revolution of the way to picture yourself, and the way you picture your world based on your self-image. This is the essence of the West Papua Revolutionary Army)

Three Poisons in Free West Papua Campaigns (1)

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.

The first one is the Poison called “An-An”

In Lani language of West Papua it is called “An-an“, i.e., only me, nobody else. Let us remember two stories in the Bible One is the fall of the Lucifer as the Leader of all Praise and Worship before God. And the second is the fall of human race into sin.

Lucifer is the closest Angel to God of all angels. He said, “An Ala nda’ndak arikit!,” mbaregerak, which means he chose by himself, to become the same as God. He said, “I want to become the same as God!” This is called “an-an” or egocentric statement, egocentric ambition.

A second story of poisoning recorded the Bible can be found in Genesis Chapter 3. In the Garden of Eden, when Lucifer came to the first woman namely Eve and said.

5“For God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”…

Lucifer implanted the same egocentric disease of “becoming the same as God” from himself to human race. And this poison made Eve fall into sin and she ate the fruit. The story continues, Adam also wanted to become “God” and that was why he also ate the fruit.

This poison of “wanting to become God” is with us all human beings. Psychologically, it is called “ego”. This is why books have been written on how to control, how to address and even how to defeat the self ego before defeating the enemy outside. Ego is seen as the enemy of the self.

Gen. Tabi said egocentric leaders would think the following:

  1. There is nobody else that can do best to free West Papua. Only myself that can free West Papua.
  2. I do not trust anybody else, they are incapable to free West Papua. I am suspicious of those others being paid and used by Indonesia. I only trust myself, therefore, I am the only best person to free West Papua.
  3. This is my effort, my work, my own idea, my concept, my property, therefore, I must be the leader, the commander, the chairman, the president, nobody else to take up this position, because I am the one who brought this struggle to this level of achievements.’
  4. I am the only person in or from West Papua that is capable of doing things I am doing. Nothing will happen like this without me.

With these mindset, they wil say like this in public

  1. I am the Commander in Chief, and I am the only one, nobody else, will free West Papua;
  2. I am the Chair of the ULMWP, and I am the only one, nobody else, will free West Papua; if you replace me, you will not be free from colonialism, so propose whatever arguments to make me be in this position.
  3. We are the only organisation that is capable of freeing West Papua, therefore, any organisation or groups that campaign for West Papua independence must join. Those who do not join us must be wiped out.

Ego is aPosion

Listen, I did not say this is a virus. I did not say this as a disease. But I said, this is a poison. Do you know what poison does?

Here is what Wikipedia, the Free Online Encyclopedia says about poison:

The term “poison” is often used colloquially to describe any harmful substance—particularly corrosive substances, carcinogens, mutagens, teratogens and harmful pollutants, and to exaggerate the dangers of chemicals. …

Similarly, Britanica.com definis poison as follows

Poison, in biochemistry, a substance, natural or synthetic, that causes damage to living tissues and has an injurious or fatal effect on the body, whether it is ingested, inhaled, or absorbed or injected through the skin.

Egocentric is a harmful substance in a collective struggle for collective goal such as Free West Papua Campaign. When everybody within the struggle are strongly attached to the struggle, then it becomes so personal, so egocentric and thus so destructive.

It is a “bio” and “chemistry”, it exists in living being, (bio) and it is chemical.It causes damage to living tissues. Egocentric individuals, egocentric leaders are poisonous. They destroy living tissues in a struggle.

A strong ego is important for self-confidence and strong leadership, but too much egoism is a poison.

Now, look inside you

Look at the military commanders in West Papua, look at the chair of the leaders within Free West Papua Campaign such as

  1. The Leader of the Parliament,
  2. The Leader of the ULMWP Exectutives,
  3. The Leader of the OPM,
  4. The President/ Prime Minister of the NRFPB,
  5. the Chair/ Leaders of the KNPB, and others.

If you are one of those who do not want to follow the constitution of your organisations and want to prolong your leadership term, then you should acknowledge that you are egocentric leader.

Gen. Tabi continues,

If you are one of those who never change your position and always stay there for more than 10 years, then you are a poisonous fighter. And that egocentric leader is a poison in your your own struggle to free your country and people. The one defeating you is inside you, not outside you!.

So first, you attach every success and progress made so far in the history of West Papua independence movement to yourself, to the ego that is inside you.

And second, you, therefore, defend your ego as the “only one” that can finally free West Papua, and therefore, you want to become the chair, the spokesperson, the commander, the top leader for so long, over the your term. You make efforts to serve your egocentric leadership. Remember that by doing this, you become a poison in the overall movement.

  • What should be done with the poison of egocentric leader?
  • What should be done with the poison of egocentric military command?
  • What are the second and third poisons?

[…to be continued….]

“West Papua Constitution Must be in Effect before Special Autonomy Law Ends”, says Gen. Tabi

Gen. WPRA Amunggut Tabi from Central Defence Headquarters of West Papua Army says the Provisional Constitution of the Republic of West Papua must be ready towards the end of the Special Autonomy Law and before Indonesia legalizes the Special Autonomy Law III from January 1, 2121.

Special Autonomy Law I began on 1 May 1963, when the United Nations Temporary Executive Authority (UNTEA) handed over West Irian to Indonesia and Indonesia promised the United Nations and the Netherlands that Indonesia will build West Papua within 25 years, then Indonesia will allow a referendum for self-determination be conducted.

This law ended 14 December 1988, this was why Dr. Thomas Wapai Wainggai proclaimed the Independence of West Papua Country.

Special Autonomy II started on 1 December 2001, based on UU Otsus No. 21/2001 which was legalised in November 2001 by Megawati Sukarnoputri. This special autonomy law is effective for 20 years, therefore, it will end this year (2020).

Special Autonomy III will begin from 2021.

This is why West Papua Indepdendence movement organisation such as TPN PB OPM under Jeffry Bomanak or ULMWP under Benny Wenda must make sure that West Papua has a formal constitution, recognized and accepted by many parties in West Papua and the people of West PApua in order to apply into the region of the Republic of West Papua.

When asked about his position on Jeffry Bomanak, Gen. Tabi says it is not time anymore to talk about differences within West Papuan people.

We have wasted to a lot of valuable time in thinking and talking about internal frictions and this make us have no energy and no time to even think about how to fight Indonesian, let alone the actual fighting,

All Melanesians in West Papua are now focusing on Special Autonomy Law and West Papua independence. We are all one One People – One Soul, we are only different in approaches and methods to gain independence, but the people and the goal or soul just one and the same for all of us

Only Indonesia and her supporters want to call this differences as factionalism and internal conflicts.

says Tabi.

He emphasizes that ULMWP or OPM must have a clear, legitimate, publicly recognized constitution for West Papua, clear and legitimate government established based on this constitution and announce this to the world. This constitution and government should go international and seek recognition from global community.

Tabi says, “This is the only way forward on the table. No more bloodshed, no more bloody conflicts. We want to resolve problems in a civilized manner”.

Asked about the statement from former Vice-President of Indonesia that wants to hold dialogues with all parties in West Papua, Gen. Tabi says he has no capacity and no duty to talk anything political. He proposes MELANESIA.news to ask Benny Wenda or Jeffery Bomanak.

When MELANESIA.news asked Gen. Tabi whether or not he is happy with what the ULMWP is doing with West Papua Army (WPA), he says, “Surely my Commander-in-Chief, Gen. WPRA Mathias Wenda is not so happy. I am so unhappy. Almost all military commands in West Papua are unhappy.”

Asked whether or not WPA will approach TPN PB OPM under Jeffry Bomay, Gen. Tabi says no answer this far, but at least all commands campaigning for West Papua independence have one ancestral line, one nation, one goal: to free West Papua from colonialism.
