The UK’s involvement in the Papuan crisis

‘Britain provides training and delivery of military equipment to Indonesian forces, including units deployed in Papua,’ the study states.
The first is Kopassus, an elite force of the Indonesian army that has been accused over the decades of extensive human rights violations in the country. The second, perhaps more controversial Jakarta-Westminster partnership concerns Detachment 88, an elite anti-terrorism squad of the Indonesian Police Force. Formed after the 2002 Bali bombings which killed over 200 people – mostly tourists – the unit has been heavily deployed in the Papuan region, particularly around Grasberg, to counter local separatists.

INDONESIA: Chomsky slams Western ‘support’ for Papua atrocities

America, Britain and Australia – and the mainstream media in the US – were all guilty of supporting human rights violations and massacres in West Papua and the former East Timor.
“What happened in East Timor was because the US and its allies supported it for 25 years. West Papua is the same. As long as the US primarily and its allies as well — the Western powers — support atrocities, they are carried out with impunity, just like their own atrocities are.

The March to Ruin: Why I think President Jokowi is a Puppet and a Dire Warning

Since Jokowi becomes President in 2014, intolerance has increased, there is no law and justice, economic social welfare hasn’t improved much, and the country is heading toward an Islamic country like that of Saudi Arabia.
Once Indonesia become an Islamic country, you can imagine the worst scenario will happen. There will be massacre of all the non Moslem (men, women, children), minorities (ethnic Chinese, LBGT, etc) and everyone who is against the government and against Indonesia to become an Islamic country. This will be worse than the Nazi concentration camp and the 1965 genocide. This is a possible risk that can’t be taken lightly.
If Indonesians don’t wake up fast and do something to change the direction of their country, they are definitely marching towards ruin. Its people need to revolt when the time comes or they will keep marching to Fascism and Ruin.

BP Evil Plunderer Western Imperialism

Killing and Plundering : Special Investigation of BP in West Papua – Slow Motion Genocide, High Speed Profit

Many indigenous Papuans ask “Why are we so poor when our country is so rich?”
BP is profiting from a giant gas field in West Papua while the indigenous population face ‘slow motion genocide’ under Indonesian military occupation, an undercover investigation by New Matilda can reveal. The oil giant is collaborating with the army and police who are implicated in the killing and torturing of pro-independence activists as part of an escalating militarisation to secure West Papua’s gas reserves.
After fifteen years in West Papua, BP is endangering human rights and failing to deliver ‘a material improvement in fundamental living conditions’ of some of the world’s poorest people.
“BP are siphoning off West Papuan resources to Indonesia blind to the brutal repression going on around them, The Indonesian Government are desperate to hide what is happening from the rest of the world”, said Lord Harries.
