MEDIA STATEMENT

THE LAUNCHING OF THE INTERNATIONAL PARLIAMENTARIANS FOR WEST PAPUA – PNG CHAPTER
In light of the Launching of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua in London on 15th October 2008, of which I am a founding member, I am pleased to announce the launching of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua – “The PNG Chapter” on Saturday 07th of November 2009 at the University of Papua New Guinea Botanical Garden.
The International Parliamentarians for West Papua is a concern international Parliamentarian group of legislators who simply want the people of West Papua to exercise the fundamental right to self determination just like all other people of the world because that right belongs to the people of the world.
The main purpose of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua is to advocate for and ensure that our people of West Papua exercise their fundamental rights to self determination, a right recognized globally and enshrined in the United Nations founding Charter and in the preamble of the United Nation Human Rights Charter.
The right to self determination is recognized globally as a fundamental right to be exercise by people of the world. It is also recognized as a preliminary right that must be exercised and enjoyed before one can benefit or achieve other rights such as social, economic or political rights. The right to self determination is therefore a prerequisite or fundamental to all other rights and history shows that the people of West Papua did not exercise that right to date.
The launching of the PNG Chapter is complementary to the efforts of the International Parliamentarians in Europe and USA in recognizing the right of the West Papuan people to self determination, that has been denied from them through the 1969 Act of Free Choice.
The launching of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua – PNG Chapter is a show of support and commitment to the International Community and to the people of West Papua that we stand in solidarity to advocate for self determination for West Papua and by doing so we elevate the plight of the West Papuan People to a new level and hopefully in the United Nations.
The official launching of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua “PNG Chapter” will at the University of Papua New Guinea Botanical Gardens on Saturday 7th November 2009 at 1 o’clock.

One Response to “THE LAUNCHING OF THE INTERNATIONAL PARLIAMENTARIANS FOR WEST PAPUA – PNG CHAPTER”

  1. Kurt S. Spehr born in Madang P.N.G. Says:

    It is my belief that the U.N. predecessor the League of Nations issued a mandate signed by the U.S. as a post world war I treaty that mandated the entire island of New Guinea to be placed under Australian control and that the U.S. would not have power to change the mandate save a vote of the U.S. Congress and an approval by the U.S. Senate. The so called “Act of Free Choice,”-N.Y. Agreement pushed for personal profit by Dr. Henry Kissinger violated this U.S. Treaty promise and invalidates the N.Y. Agreement. I believe page 201 of the Treaty discussing indigenous countries makes it clear that Australia was the only U.N. mandated trust territory of the island nation New Guinea. The 1975 Act of Independence granted by Australia made the entire island a free state. The U.S. Congress must insist that Indonesia troops are immediately withdrawn as a Treaty signee and because the U.S. Constitution remains the Supreme Law of the Land and makes any Treaty the Supreme Law of the Land.
