Theindonesiatoday.com – The National Committee of West Papua (KNPB) has already planned a big rally in all areas of West Papua Province on November 14 to demand a referendum for West Papuan people to determine their own fate.

Victor Yeimo, spokesperson of KNPB, claims that KNPB has co-ordinated with local police related to the planned rally.

“West Papuan people will not remain silent, especially with fears of repression from militaristic Indonesian government. So, the public rally demands the right to self-determination which remains to be done with all of West Papuan people,” said Victor Yeimo as quoted by Wartapapuabarat.org.

According to Victor Yeimo, referendum is the rights of West Papuan people and a solution for West Papua’s problems.

Victor said that now is a time to hold a new referendum where every West Papuan people have their own vote to determine the future of West Papua. “One man, one vote!” said Victor. Read more…

Dalam catatannya yang disampaikan tertulis dengan jelas, judul catatannya, “Penolakan Dialogue menjadi bukti Pukulan Telak Pemerintah Kolonial terhadap Agen Intelijennya sendiri. Pukulan telak buat Pastor Neles Tebay bersama koleganya dan penganut politik Papua Tanah Damai.” Read more…
