The question now is Does OPM (Free Papua Movement) understand what the meaning of genocide is? If we look at the meaning of genocide, then there is no such things as Indonesian government commit a genocide in West Papua. No facts and data which is suggested a genocide in West Papua. That statement also proves that OPM did not understand the meaning of genocide and proclaim a thing that is not true in order that they are considered by the international world with propaganda and provocation that they spread. OPM also should know that regional heads in Papua nowadays are prominent figures of Papuans, this means that the leadership in Papua is the original person of Papua.
