Wednesday, 7 September, 2011, 6:05 PM

Statement from the West Papua solidarity gathering at Nga Wai o Horotiu, Tamaki Makaurau / Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand

8 September 2011

We are very encouraged by the statement of the United Nations Secretary-General, Ban ki-Moon, at a media conference in Auckland yesterday, 7 September 2011, that West Papua should be discussed by the Decolonisation Committee of the United Nations General Assembly.

Noting with appreciation the Secretary-General’s statement that “whether you are an independent state or a non-self-governing territory or whatever, the human rights is inalienable and a fundamental principle of the United Nations”, and “we will do all to ensure” that the human rights of the people of West Papua are respected, we therefore call on:

The United Nations Secretary General to act without delay, and:

* appoint a Special Representative to investigate the situation in West Papua – to review the circumstances and outcome of the 1969 ‘Act of Free Choice’, as well as the contemporary situation; and
* use his good offices to persuade the Indonesian government to allow free access to West Papua for media representatives from the international community and for non-governmental human rights organisations.

The Pacific Island Forum Leaders meeting in Auckland to act without delay, and:

* send a fact-finding mission to West Papua to investigate the human rights situation;
* support the West Papuan people in their call for peaceful dialogue with the Indonesian government;
* grant observer status to West Papuan representatives who support the people of West Papua’s right of self-determination; and
* recommend to the United Nations General Assembly that West Papua be put back on the agenda of the Decolonisation Committee.

The New Zealand government to act without delay, and:

* play a role in mediating and beginning the process of peaceful dialogue between West Papuan representatives and the Indonesian government; and
* cease all military ties with Indonesia until the human rights of the people of West Papua are respected.

Civil society to:

* support the West Papuan call for peace and justice, and for a process of peaceful dialogue with the Indonesian government; and
* take every opportunity to support West Papuans working for peace, justice, human rights and environmental sustainability.

Participating organisations: New Zealand non-governmental organisations Bicultural Desk of the Auckland Catholic Diocese, Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand, Christian World Service, CORSO Inc., Indonesia Human Rights Committee, Pax Christi Aotearoa New Zealand, Peace Movement Aotearoa, Philippine Migrant Centre, and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Aotearoa Section; New Zealand based Coalition for Democracy in Fiji; and Australian non-governmental organisations Australia West Papua Association (Sydney), Institute of Papuan Advocacy and Human Rights, Medical Association for Prevention of War, Missionaries of the Sacred Heart Justice and Peace Centre (Australian Province), Pax Christi Australia and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Australia Section.

One killed as Seven Indonesians shot in Nafri, West Papua

November 29, 2010

One killed as Seven Indonesians shot in Nafri, West Papua

There was a shooting in Nafri village Abepura District, Jayapura, West Papua (Papua Province) on Sunday 28 November 2010, 9.30am (Papua local time). The shooting incident is reported to have continued for 5 minutes.

The victims of the shooting were all Indonesian. One man Riswandy Yunus was shot dead in the incident. A number of different vehicles were shot at including public transport, rubbish truck and motorcycles, including the one driven by Riswandy Yunus.

This incident superficially appears, as though, it was carried out by Pro-independence guerrillas. Paula Makabory, from Institute for Papuan Advocacy and Human Rights, believes that the Indonesian military are most likely responsible for the incident. An Independent investigation is necessary as the Indonesian Police, alone will be unable to investigate what appears to be an Indonesian military ‘black operation’.

Dead Victim:

Riswandy Yunus, male 35 years old from Ternate/Indonesian.

Suffered a bullet wound on his chest went through his shoulder, grazed wound on his right leg, and bruised on his face. He died in the crime scene. He was shot while driving passing the crime scene from Abepura District toward Yoka.

Wounded victims:

1. Baharuddin (male/35YO), from Java/Indonesian.

Suffering of bullet wound on his right palm. He was shot while driving a public transport (Yotefa-Arso) passing the crime scene from Abepura District toward Yoka.

2. Zaenal (male/9 YO), Indonesian.

Elementary/primary student who was one of the passengers in the public transport. Bullet wound on his left palm and a grazed wound on his right chest.

3. Sahari Bowo (female/38YO), Makassar Indonesian.

Passenger of the public transport. Suffering of grazed wound in both of her knees because she jumped out from the public transport.

4. Alex Nongga (male/32YO) from Manado/Indonesian.

Bullet wound on his right arm and grazed wound on his face.

5. Dian Novita (female/28YO) Indonesian.

Scratched of bullet on her helmet. She was the passenger of the motorbike drove by her husband, Riswandi Yunus.

6. Deby Diana Rumansah (female/21YO) Indonesian.

Bullet wound on her hand.

Chronology:

On Sunday 28 November 2010, at 9.30am (local Papua time) all the victims were passing the crime scene from Abepura district direction toward Koya district, when a group of unidentified armed men shot at them, many times.

At around 10.00am the police security forces arrived at the crime scene and secured the place and took the victims to Abepura hospital.

At around 1.10pm, the victims Alex Nongga and Zaenal were transferred to Dok II Public hospital in Jayapura.

Other evidences:

1. Rubbish-truck Police number DS 5754 AD, was shot at the front, windscreen wiper broken, three sharp bulled holes at the front bumper.

2. Motorbike Honda Tiger Police number DS 2337 AP, belongs to Riswandy Yunus (dead victim)

3. Motorbike Jupiter Z Police number DS 5244 AR, was shot from the left side.

The situation around the crime scene was reported ass secured by Police and no further incidents have occurred.

A Incident requiring independent investigation

This incident requires independent investigation. It is doubtful that the Indonesian Police can carry out such an independent investigation, without involvement of a more impartial institution.

The incident superficially appears as though was carried out by Pro-Independence guerrillas. The event occurs just days before December 1 which is the usual day raising day the outlawed ‘Morning Star’ flag by Pro Independence Papuans.

The incident is similar to the shootings at Freeport as in that it has occurred in a highly militarized area. The region between Jayapura and the PNG border has quite a number of military camps, is one of the most militarized and secure regions in West Papua. The possibilities for Pro-Independence guerrillas to carry out an attack and then to disappear are very limited.

Those responsible for the incident are most likely to the Indonesian military and either the Kopassus or the military backed Pro-Indonesia militia. The Indonesian military has a long operational agenda of ‘black operations’, which continue, exacerbate and justify the armed conflict in West Papua.

Pro- Papuan groups within West Papua are currently working to establish a Peace building process with Indonesia Government. Whoever is behind this incident it is an attempt to this subvert the process to make Peace in West Papua.

FALEOMAVAEGA on West Papua and Congressional Hearings

September 29, 2010

Washington, D.C. FALEOMAVAEGA HOLDS FIRST EVER HEARING REGARDING INDONESIA’S DELIBERATE AND SYSTEMATIC ABUSES IN WEST PAPUA

On September 22, 2010, the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific and the Global Environment, Rep. Eni F.H. Faleomavaega (D-AS), held a hearing entitled “Crimes Against Humanity: When Will Indonesia’s Military Be Held Accountable for Deliberate and Systematic Abuses in West Papua?” This was the first hearing ever held in the U.S. Congress on the issue of West Papua.

Indonesia’s Ambassador to the U.S., Dino Patti Djalal, said he was “not concerned by the hearing because it was only attended by three Congress people, and that the U.S. government should not change its stance.”

“Ambassador Djalal is new to the U.S. and has failed to realize the importance of Wednesday’s hearing,” Faleomavaega said. “Little does Ambassador Djalal know but as a result of the attention this hearing was given, Papuan leaders met with officials at the National Security Council, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State, and other Members of Congress whose schedules did not permit them to attend the hearing.”

“Regrettably, Ambassador Djalal’s attitude is typical of Indonesian indifference to the serious concerns raised at the hearing. More than 50 Members of the U.S. Congress are so concerned by Indonesia’s failure to implement Special Autonomy that they joined with Chairman Donald Payne of the Subcommittee on Africa and myself to urge President Obama to make the issue of West Papua one of his highest priorities when he visits Indonesia.”

“The Members of Congress who signed this letter are mostly Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and Ambassador Djalal’s remarks are really an affront to every person of conscience and color who is committed to ending the abuse and resolving the conflict in West Papua.”

“The people of West Papua have suffered long enough at the hands of Indonesia’s brutal military and police forces, and many experts suggest that West Papuans have been subjected to genocide. Whether or not genocide has taken place, one thing is clear. Indonesia’s military has committed indisputable crimes against humanity through the murder, torture and rape of more than 100,000 West Papuans.”

“While President SBY inherited a very difficult situation, I am disappointed that he has not been able to get his military under control and prevent further abuses in West Papua. I am also disappointed that he has not implemented Special Autonomy as promised. While Ambassador Djalal implies that the UN has already determined the status of West Papua, nothing could be further from the truth.”

“This is no issue of territorial integrity. West Papua was a former Dutch colony for some 100 years just as East Timor was a former Portuguese colony just as Indonesia was a former colony of the Netherlands. Because of its status as a former colony, East Timor achieved its independence from Indonesia in 2002 through a referendum sanctioned by the United Nations (UN), despite Indonesia’s serious objections over East Timor’s right to self-determination.”

“In contrast, in 1962 the United States pressured the Dutch to turn over control of West Papua to the United Nations. Under the U.S.-brokered deal, Indonesia was to ‘make arrangements with the assistance and participation of the United Nations’ to give Papuans an opportunity to determine whether they wished to become part of Indonesia or not.”

“In what became known as the Act of No Choice carried out in 1969, 1025 West Papua elders under heavy military surveillance were selected to vote on behalf of 809,327 West Papuans regarding the territory’s political status. In spite of serious violations of the UN Charter and no broad-based referendum, West Papua was forced to become a part of Indonesia by the barrel of a gun.”

“According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), ‘declassified documents released in July 2004 indicate that the United States supported Indonesia’s take-over of Papua in the lead up to the 1969 Act of Free Choice even as it was understood that such a move was likely unpopular with Papuans. The documents reportedly indicate that the United States estimated that between 85% and 90% of Papuans were opposed to Indonesian rule and that as a result the Indonesians were incapable of winning an open referendum at the time of Papua’s transition from Dutch colonial rule. Such steps were evidently considered necessary to maintain the support of Suharto’s Indonesia during the Cold War.’”

“Today, the U.S. provides millions of dollars in aid to Indonesia and its military but Indonesia will not allow Members of the U.S. Congress to visit Jayapura in West Papua. This is wrong and should not be tolerated by the U.S.”

“Indonesia should get serious about West Papua, and I will do everything I can to keep this issue in the spotlight, especially given that many Samoans served as missionaries to West Papua and brought Christianity to the islands. Some of my Samoan relatives are buried in West Papua and their service and sacrifice compels me to do what I can for the people they loved.”

“According to CRS, ‘migration by non-Melanesian Indonesians from elsewhere in the nation appears to be a critical part of the mounting tensions. By some accounts Melanesian Papuans will be in the minority in their homeland by 2015.’”

“We cannot allow this to happen. While there is so much more I want to say about the commercial exploitation of West Papua’s renowned mineral wealth which includes vast reserves of gold, copper, nickel, oil and gas and Freeport USA’s own shameful role in this exploitation, for now I want to commend the West Papuans who testified at last week’s hearing.”

“Mr. Octovianus Mote, Founder of the West Papua Action Network and President of the Papua Resource Center; Mr. Henkie Rumbewas, International Advocate of the Australia West Papua Association (AWPA); Mr. Salamon Maurits Yumame, Head of FORDEM (The Democratic Forum); S. Eben Kirksey, Ph.D., Visiting Assistant Professor of The Graduate Center, The City University of New York testified in support of and on behalf of the people of West Papua, making it plain to the U.S. Congress that Indonesia has failed to implement the Special Autonomy law which was passed in 2001. Consequently, they urged that a new dialogue should take place to determine a way forward.”

“Sophie Richardson, Ph.D., Asia Advocacy Director for Human Rights Watch addressed the issue of ongoing human rights abuses. Pieter Drooglever, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Institute of Netherlands History, provided an historical background of events which have led to division and discord.”

“Mr. Nicholas Simeone Messet, a West Papuan who has lived in Sweden for the past 38 years or so, said that West Papuans are ‘lazy’ and should accept some of the blame for the failure of Special Autonomy. In my opinion is it is wrong to blame the oppressed.”

“In his statement before the UN against Apartheid, Nelson Mandela said, ‘It will forever remain an accusation and challenge to all men and women of conscience that it took so long as it has before all of us stood up to say enough is enough.’ This is how I feel about West Papua. Others feel the same, despite Ambassador Djalal’s objectionable remarks which implied that no one really cares since Indonesia has more friends than critics in the U.S. Congress.”

“For the Ambassador’s information, 50 Members of the U.S. Congress as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Anan and more than 174 parliamentarians and 80 nongovernmental agencies from around the world have joined together to call upon Indonesia to end the violence and resolve the problems in West Papua. Simply put, this issue is not going away until Indonesia is held accountable, and I have every confidence that President Obama will, in fact, seek dialogue.”

“Until then, my thoughts and prayers are with the people of West Papua who only want what we all want – the right to live in peace and pursue happiness. In response to the hearing, I have received word that the families of some of our West Papuan witnesses have been visited by Indonesia police forces. I hope this is not the case but, for precautionary purposes, I am asking our U.S. Embassy in Jakarta to look into this disturbing report.”

“As a matter of record, I am also including the full text of my remarks which provide a detailed accounting of the purpose of this hearing,” Faleomavaega concluded.

50 MEMBERS OF U.S. CONGRESS CALL UPON OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO MAKE WEST PAPUA ONE OF ITS HIGHEST PRIORITIES

August 2, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, D.C. CONGRESSMAN FALEOMAVAEGA AND CONGRESSMAN PAYNE SPEARHEAD EFFORT IN U.S. CONGRESS CALLING UPON THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO MAKE WEST PAPUA ONE OF ITS HIGHEST PRIORITIES

The Chairman of the Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific and the Global Environment, Rep. Eni F.H. Faleomavaega, and Chairman Donald M. Payne of the Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health have spearheaded an effort in Congress calling upon President Obama to “make West Papua one of the highest priorities of the Administration.”

As a result of their efforts, 50 Members of the U.S. Congress signed a letter to the President stating that there is strong indication that the Indonesian government has committed genocide against the Papuans. West Papua is the half of New Guinea that was invaded by Indonesia in 1962.

While Papuan leaders have repeatedly tried to engage in dialogue with the Indonesian government, dialogues have failed to produce concrete results and Papuan leaders are now calling for an International Dialog. In this context, signatories of the letter have asked President Obama to meet with the people of West Papua during his upcoming trip to Indonesia in November.

Many Members who signed the letter are members of the Congressional Black Caucus. The signatories include men and women who fought for civil rights in America in the 1960s. Younger politicians have also joined this initiative to support the people of West Papua who have suffered long enough.

In addition to the Congressional Black Caucus, many other American leaders who are long-time advocates of human rights joined this request to the President of the United States, including members of the Hispanic Caucus. The last remaining member of the Kennedy family in Congress, Rep. Patrick Kennedy from Rhode Island, also signed the letter to President Obama.

The letter to the President suggests that slow motion genocide has been taking place in West Papua and reviews findings by human rights organizations and scholars who have conducted extensive research about crimes against humanity and genocide by Indonesian security forces. “Genocide is usually difficult to document since leaders are often reluctant to state their intention to destroy another nation, race, or ethnic group,” Members of Congress wrote. “Even still, in 2007 Col. Burhanuddin Siagian, who was then the local regional commander (DANREM) said, ‘If I encounter elements that use government facilities, but still are betraying the nation, I will destroy them.’”

According to international agreements, other nations are legally obligated to intervene when a genocide is in process and Members of Congress remain hopeful that President Obama and the U.S. State Department will hold Indonesia accountable. Members concluded their letter by encouraging the President to meet with the Team of 100 from West Papua during his upcoming visit, noting that President Obama has the opportunity to bring lasting change to this part of the world.

THE LAUNCHING OF THE INTERNATIONAL PARLIAMENTARIANS FOR WEST PAPUA – PNG CHAPTER

November 8, 2009

05 November 2009

ATTENTION ALL MEDIA ORGANISATIONS

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.

WPNCL CALLS ON THE GOVERNMENT OF INDONESIAN TO DIALOGUE WITH THE PAPUAN PEOPLE

October 10, 2009

WPNCL CALLS ON THE GOVERNMENT OF INDONESIAN TO DIALOGUE WITH THE PAPUAN PEOPLE
West Papua National Coalition for Liberation (WPNCL) had written twice to the President of the Republic of Indonesian Dr. Haji Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, in 2007 and again in 2008 requesting him to dialogue with the Papuan people. But until now there is still no response from him or his government.
Since its’ establishment WPNCL was committed to the use of peaceful means as the dominant principle to resolve the conflict between the Papuan people and the government of Indonesia. WPNCL considers a mutually beneficial Summit/dialogue with Indonesia the first priority in the process of resolving the issue of West Papua. Such dialogue or Summit must be facilitated by a Third Party or Mediator, endorsed by both parties, the Papuan people and the government of Indonesia.
WPNCL viewed the recent incident involving the arrest and detention of Mr. Jonah Wenda, Spokesman of the Military Council of the West Papuan National Liberation Army (TPN PB) and peace Activist of WPNCL on 6 September 2009 in Klamono/Sorong as a provocative act that could undermine the on going efforts to maintain peace and tolerance in the land of Papua. Mr. Jonah Wenda was transferred to Jayapura for further interrogation then released on … September and placed under house arrest. It is important to keep in mind that peace and tolerance in the land of Papua could be maintained because of the hard work of peace activists of the land including Mr. Jonah Wenda. He had worked tirelessly together with members of WPNCL to make sure that TPN remain committed to peace. WPNCL considers this as confidence boosting effort to pave the way for peace negotiation with the government of Indonesia. After all there must be genuine good will efforts shown by both parties before any negotiation.
Mr. Jonah Wenda and the other peace activists are conducting themselves in the open and known to members of the public. They cannot be considered as a threat to any one. All their activities are manifestations of the undertaking in 2002 where POLDA PAPUA (Regional Police Force of Papua) had agreed to work together with the Papuan Peoples Representative Council (DPRP) and Stakeholder in the Society to maintain peace in the land of Papua. The details of commitment of Stakeholders in the form of Recommendations could be ascertained in the Report of the Peace Conference of the Papuan people held in Jayapura from 15-16 October 2002.
Since that Conference, a Task Force for Peace was established by members of the Civil Society. The main task was to disseminate information and engage Civil Society about the recommendations. The Task Force had also facilitated consultations and reconciliation with groups that potentially could hinder or endangered the peace efforts. It facilitated parallel meetings with different stakeholders in the Society including the different regional commands of TPN.
The Task Force for Peace in Papua had also facilitated combined meetings with Papuans in the country and those in Diaspora. From 16-20 June 2003 a Think Tank Group meeting was held in Utrecht, Netherlands. Some 23 Papuan intellectuals participated. The 3 main agenda items of the meetings were Human Rights and Justice, Development, and Politics. Because of the absence of some important Stakeholders including the TPN it was recommended that another meeting be organized some where closer to West Papua. Such meeting must be inclusive to allow for full participation of Stakeholders of the whole resistance movement.
All these meetings realized the need for workshops tor the purpose of dissemination of the basic recommendations and more importantly to allow for wider participation and input by all sectors who want the realization of peace in West Papua. Two Workshops were facilitated in the country. The first Workshop held in Jayapura on 27 October 2004 recommended that a high level meeting of National leaders must be convened to seriously consider all the criteria and options in the process to resolve the conflict in West Papua. The second workshop held on 20 November 2004 agreed to organize a meeting for the leaders of all the Papuan organizations in the Civil Society. The workshop also discussed technical matters involved including, agenda, venue, participants and cost involved in convening such a meeting.
Considering the recommendations from the workshops many diverse groups in the Civil Society decided to go ahead to convene the proposed National meeting/Summit involving Stakeholders in the country and also in Diaspora. This meeting/Summit was held in Papua New Guinea from 28 November to 1st December 2005. This Summit was able to make a number of interim decisions: The establishment of a National Coordinating body called, West Papua National Coalition for Liberation (WPNCL). The Summit decided that the Secretariat of WPNCL be based in Port Vila, the Capital of the Republic of Vanuatu. The Summit also decided that concerted efforts must be made to consult widely on unity and maximize consolidation between different factions of the Resistance movement in West Papua. From the invited 28 Resistance organizations only 18 were able to attend. The remaining 10 organizations sent their apologies and endorsed the purpose of the Summit.
Based on the recommendations from the above Summit an important meeting was convened for the Commanders of the West Papuan National Liberation Army, the TPN PB. PNG was also the venue for this meeting which was held from 22-24 July 2006 and was attended by all the regional Commands of TPN. A number of important agreements were made in the meeting including, the duty and function of TPN as a Revolutionary Army that must protect all West Papuans; separation of TPN from the OPM structure, further more the role and responsibility of TPN during the revolution; the formation of TPN Military Council as the highest Coordinating body of TPN; during the same meeting a declaration of commitment by all the Commanders to work together in the efforts to liberate Papuan people and the land of West Papua; urging all the Commanders within the TPN Command to unify their perceptions whether in programming, strategy and action to accomplish the objective of the revolution; acknowledge and respect the universal principles of humanity; endorse the efforts to establish West Papua as land of peace; urging unity between all the resistance groups in West Papua; urging all West Papuans to work together to maintain National unity.
Another follow up meeting by TPN was held at Victoria HQ from 5-7 April 2007. This meeting had reached a number of agreements to merge, Arfai 1965 Command, Marvic Command and Pemka Command into one Command to be known as West Papua National Liberation Army Command. This new Command comes under the responsibility and direct Command of the Military Council of the West Papua National Liberation Army; Henceforth, the Military Council of TPN PB becomes the highest decision making body or Command of TPN PB; confirming a new Command structure and designation of regional Commands for each HQ; the appointment of ranking officers in the Military Council of TPN PB including the other rankings further down the structure of Command. A communiqué was issued at the end of the meeting to declare or affirm the above decisions: a unity process within the rank and file of TPN PB, the merging of Arfai ’65 Command, Marvic Command and Pemka Command into one Command structure. Commitment by all parties within TPN PB to foster bilateral and international cooperation to combat the traffic of narcotics, to stem terrorist networks and above all the creation of a National Command of TPN PB encompassing all regions of West Papua which was divided into 6 Regional Commands.
Next WPNCL convened its Second Summit in Malaysia from 22-25 September 2007. A number of decisions were made here: WPNCL will establish its Secretariat in Port Vila, Vanuatnu; the adoption of Bylaws of WPNCL that also cover rules on the TPN PB and other functions of the Coalition. The Summit established a negotiating team and agreed on the strategy for negotiation with Indonesia through a Third Party. The Summit had also approved the existence and the on going work of the West Papua Peace Working Group that had networks in 4 major regions, Asia, Pacific, America and Europe. Because of the absence of some stakeholders including TPN PB it was decided to have the final Leaders Summit in Vanuatu.
The third and final West Papuan leaders Summit was held in Vanuatu from 2-10 April 2008. This Summit was endorsed by the Government of Vanuatu. The Summit issued a major resolution calling on Indonesia to agree to resolve the West Papuan conflict peacefully through International negotiation facilitated by a Third Party. The Summit also called on the International community to encourage Indonesia to open West Papua for International access by Journalists and other International agencies.
TPN PB has been one of the important supporting pillars of WPNCL. But since its Commander was elected as Chairman of the Coalition during the Summit in Vanuatu the position of Commander became vacant. Unfortunately it is a technical matter and was referred to the Military Council of TPN PB to decide. This matter was resolved when all the Commanders met near the PNG border from 29-31 October 2008. This was also the first National Planning meeting of the new Military Council of TPN PB.
WPNCL had also held its first National Planning meeting near the PNG border from 4-8 April 2009 to finalize its programs with clear directions and targets including one of the options of negotiating with Indonesia through a Third Party facilitation.
To conclude, WPNCL believes the new government of Dr. Haji Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has the commitment to resolve the West Papuan issue. We encourage SBY’s government to establish communication with us as we previously requested in order to commence the process for negotiation. We hope, God willing this will lead to a mutually beneficial result for both our two peoples, Papuans and Indonesians of this generation and those yet to come.

PILAR-PILAR WPNCL HIMBAU PEMERINTAH INDONESIA

Media Release
PILAR-PILAR WPNCL HIMBAU PEMERINTAH INDONESIA
BERUNDING DENGAN RAKYAT PAPUA
WPNCL (West Papua Nasional Coalition For Liberation) atau “Koalisi Nasional Papua Barat Untuk Pembebasan”, telah dua kali melayangkan surat kepada Presiden Republik Indonesia pada tahun 2007 dan 2008, dalam rangka mengajak pemerintah Indonesia agar berunding dengan rakyat Papua. Namun hingga saat ini Presiden Dr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono belum menanggapinya. Sejak awal WPNCL telah berkomitmen untuk menggunakan cara-cara damai sebagai prinsip utama dalam menyelesaikan persoalan antara rakyat Papua dan pemerintah Indonesia. WPNCL mengganggap bahwa suatu perundingan yang setara dengan pemerintah Indonesia adalah salah satu langkah prioritas dalam menyelesaikan masalah Papua. Perundingan tersebut harus melibatkan pihak ketiga sebagai mediator, yang disetujui bersama oleh pemerintah Indonesia dan rakyat Papua.
Insiden penangkapan Sdr. Jonah Wenda selaku juru bicara Dewan Militer Tentara Pembebasan Nasional Papua Barat (DM TPN-PB) dan sebagai aktivis WPNCL pada 6 September 2009 di Klamono Sorong, dan dipindahkan untuk ditahan di Kepolisian Daerah (Polda) Papua adalah suatu tindakan yang dapat menghambat upaya untuk mewujudkan perdamaian di Tanah Papua. Sdr. Jonah Wenda yang kemudian dibebaskan oleh Polda Papua itu sesungguhnya sedang melakukan aktivitas yang berkaitan erat dengan upaya konsolidasi dengan jaringan TPN-PB untuk mendorong proses penyelesaian damai konflik di Tanah Papua.
Sejak tahun 2002, Polda Papua telah bersepakat untuk bekerja sama dengan Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Papua (DPRP) dan komponen masyarakat sipil di Papua untuk mewujudkan perdamaian di Tanah Papua. Komitmen tersebut tertuang dalam Rekomendasi Konferensi Perdamaian untuk Papua yang diselenggarakan di Jayapura pada 15 – 16 Oktober 2002.
Sejak Konferensi tersebut, komponen rakyat sipil telah membantuk gugus tugas (task force) perdamaian untuk Papua, yang melakukan sosialisasi dan rekonsiliasi dengan kelompok-kelompok rakyat sipil di Papua yang potensial menghambat upaya mewujudkan Papua sebagai Tanah Damai. Task force telah melakukan serangkaian pertemuan paralel dengan berbagai kelompok-kelompok rakyat sipil di Papua, termasuk kelompok Tentara Pembebasan Nasional (TPN) pada beberapa wilayah di Tanah Papua.
Selanjutnya dilakukan pertemuan kelompok “think-tank” yang melibatkan tokoh-tokoh Papua. Pertemuan tersebut dilaksanakan pada 16 – 20 Juni 2003 di Belanda, dan dihadiri oleh 23 intelektual Papua Barat. Pertemuan ini membahas tiga agenda utama, yaitu Hak Asasi Manusia (HAM) dan Keadilan, Pembangunan dan Politik. Pertemuan ini dianggap belum mencerminkan representasi dari keseluruhan kelompok perlawanan rakyat Papua, sehingga direkomendasikan suatu pertemuan lebih luas agar dapat melibatkan seluruh pemimpin kelompok perlawanan, baik yang berada di Papua maupun di luar Papua.
Pertemuan-pertemuan paralel telah mendorong dilaksanakannya lokakarya untuk menghimpun seluruh masukan dari berbagai komponen rakyat yang menginginkan terwujudnya perdamaian di Tanah Papua. Lokakarya diselenggarakan di Jayapura sebanyak 2 kali. Lokakarya pertama pada 27 Oktober 2004, melahirkan kesepakatan tentang pentingnya suatu pertemuan tingkat tinggi para pemimpin Papua guna membicarakan kendala-kendala yang dihadapi dalam menyelesaikan konflik di Papua. Sedangkan lokakarya kedua pada 20 November 2004, memandang perlu diselenggarakan pertemuan bagi seluruh pemimpin organisasi sipil di Papua, sekaligus membahas masalah-masalah teknis yang meliputi agenda, tempat, peserta dan pembiayaan tentang pertemuan para pemimpin organisasi rakyat Papua.
Rekomendasi dari kedua lokakarya dimaksud, berbagai komponen rayat sipil di Tanah Papua memandang penting untuk melaksanakan pertemuan besar rakyat Papua yang meliputi komponen rakyat sipil di Tanah Papua dan di luar Tanah Papua. Pertemuan dimaksud dilaksanakan pada 28 November – 1 Desember 2005 di Papua New Guinea (PNG), yang melahirkan sejumlah keputusan, diantaranya: Membentuk wadah koordinasi nasional yang dinamakan Koalisi Nasional Papua Barat untuk Pembebasan atau West Papua National Coalition for Liberation (WPNCL); Menetapkan kedudukan Sekretariat WPNCL di Port Villa – Vanuatu; menetapkan proses konsolidasi dan rekonsiliasi bagi faksi-faksi perlawanan rakyat Papua Barat. Dari 28 perwakilan organisasi perlawanan rakyat Papua Barat yang direncanakan hadir, hanya 18 organisasi yang berpartisipasi dalam pertemuan dimaksud.
Merujuk pada rekomendasi di atas, diselenggarakan pertemuan para Panglima Tentara Pembebasan Nasional pada 22 – 24 Juli 2006 di PNG, yang melahirkan sejumlah kesepakatan, diantaranya menegaskan tugas dan fungsi TPN-PB sebagai tentara revolusi yang melindungi segenap komponen Bangsa Papua Barat; memisahkan secara struktural TPN dari OPM, selanjutnya TPN hanya menjalankan peran dan tanggung jawab militer dalam masa revolusi; membentuk Dewan Militer sebagai Badan Koordinasi Tertinggi TPN-PB. Dalam pertemuan yang sama dideklarasikan komitmen untuk bekerja sama dalam membebaskan Bangsa dan Tanah Air Papua Barat; ajakan kepada setiap Panglima Komando TPN-PB untuk menyatukan pandangan, baik dalam hal program, strategi dan aksi, demi mencapai tujuan revolusi; mengakui dan menghargai prinsip-prinsip kemanusiaan yang berlaku secara universal; mendukung upaya menciptakan Papua sebagai Tanah Damai; menghimbau kepada para pemimpin organisasi perlawanan rakyat Papua Barat untuk bersatu; dan mengajak rakyat Papua Barat agar bekerja sama dalam mendukung proses persatuan Nasional.
Pertemuan lanjutan TPN-PB diselenggarakan 5 – 7 April 2007 di Markas Victoria, PNG. Pertemuan ini melahirkan sejumlah kesepakatan untuk meleburkan Komando TPN-PB yang meliputi Komando “Arfai 1965”, Komando “Marvic” dan Komando “Pemka” menjadi satu Komando yang disebut Komando Tentara Pembebasan Nasional Papua Barat, di bawah pengawasan dan tanggung jawab Dewan Militer TPN-PB; membentuk Dewan Militer Tentara Pembebasan Nasional Papua Barat sebagai suatu forum pengambilan keputusan tertinggi bagi Komando TPN-PB; menetapkan Struktur Komando, dan pembagian wilayah kerja dari masing-masing Markas Komando Daerah TPN-PB; memilih dan memutuskan pejabat Dewan Militer TPN-PB beserta pejabat dalam perangkat struktur lainnya dibawah Dewan Militer TPN-PB. Dalam pertemuan yang sama dideklarasikan himbauan kepada rakyat Papua dan pihak lainnya tentang proses persatuan di lingkungan TPN-PB; peleburan Komando “Arfai 65”, Komando “Marvic” dan Komando “Pemka” ke dalam satu sistem Komando; tekad untuk menjalin kerja sama bilateral dan internasional guna menghambat perluasan jaringan kejahatan terorganisir seperti narkotika dan terorisme; sekaligus membentuk Dewan Militer Tentara Pembebasan Nasional Papua Barat (DM TPN-PB) sebagai wadah representatif yang membawahi 6 Markas Komando TPN-PB yang tersebar di seluruh wilayah Papua Barat.
WPNCL selanjutnya melaksanakan Summit I pada 22 – 25 September 2007 di Malaysia yang melahirkan sejumlah kesepakatan, diantaranya WPNCL akan mengelola sebuah Sekretariat General yang berkedudukan di Port Villa – Vanuatu. Ditetapkan pula beberapa perangkat organisasi WPNCL yang meliputi Peraturan Dasar WPNCL, Peraturan Organisasi tentang Tentara Pembebasan Nasional Papua Barat, Peraturan Organisasi lainnya. Di samping itu, diputuskan juga satu delegasi Tim Negosiasi dengan mandat melakukan sosialisasi, mengajukan proposal perundingan kepada pemerintah Indonesia, termasuk melakukan perundingan dengan pemerintah Indonesia, yang dimediasi oleh pihak ketiga. Kemudian untuk menunjang kinerja dari WPNCL dan dalam upaya-upaya pengembangan perdamaian dan pencegahan konflik, dibentuk sebuah West Papua Peace Working Group (WPPWG) yang tersebar pada 4 region yaitu Asia, Eropa, Amerika dan Pasifik.
WPNCL melanjutkan Summit II pada 2 – 10 April 2008 di Port Vila – Vanuatu, yang mendapat dukungan politik resmi dari pemerintah Vanuatu. Summit II WPNCL melahirkan sebuah resolusi diantaranya mendesak pemerintah Indonesia untuk segera mengadakan perundingan internasional guna menyelesaikan konflik Papua Barat secara damai dan dimediasi oleh pihak ketiga yang netral, menghimbau masyarakat internasional agar mendesak pemerintah Indonesia supaya membuka akses jurnalis dan organisasi-organisasi internasional untuk masuk ke Papua.
TPN-PB sebagai salah satu pilar pendukung WPNCL berhasil menyelenggarakan Rapat Kerja Nasional I pada 29 – 31 Oktober 2008 di PNG, yang melahirkan sejumlah program bagi DM TPN-PB. Kemudian dilanjutkan dengan Rapat Kerja Nasional I WPNCL pada 4 – 8 Juni 2009 yang melahirkan sejumlah program dan arah kerja bagi WPNCL untuk periode kerja pertama.
Akhirnya kami percaya bahwa pemerintahan Dr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY), memiliki komitmen yang baik untuk menyelesaikan masalah Papua secara damai. Oleh karenanya, SBY dapat segera membuka komunikasi politik dengan WPNCL dalam rangka menyiapkan langkah-langkah menuju perundingan damai yang setara, bermartabat dan demokratis.
