This demand is definitely against the history of West Papua about the implementation of "Act of Free Choice" in 1969 that was supervised and controlled by United Nation Treaty Emergency Administration (UNTEA) and approved by United Nations in New York in 1969 which West Papua was a part of the Republic of Indonesia. So, definitely what ULMWP and KNPB have done is wrong and against the history of West Papua. Nowadays, the issue of referendum and the accusation of human right violation in West Papua spread widely due to separatist groups' propaganda both on online media and social media to slander Indonesian government in the International world. But the truth is no genocide in West Papua and Papuans live peacefully under Indonesian government. A genocide issue in West Papua is just separatist groups' weapon to get support from the world.

Actually, those separatist groups should not exist in West Papua and it's better if all. Papuans focus on the public welfare and developments over there. West Papuan youth should also stop their demonstration and radical actions. President Joko Widodo said to all Indonesian citizens that this time is the time for working, all citizens should work, work and work. Please stop quarrelling and fighting each other as Indonesians.
