The Call of Free Papua Movement for Referendum is Inspired by The Independence of Timor Leste.

This thing motivated FPM through political activists to continue combating the Indonesian government's policies which are actively building for the advancement of Papua.

Various ways are done by FPM either issues or propaganda through ULMWP (United Liberation Movement for West Papua). Activists of FPM are not aware of the difference between Papua and Timor Leste. Timor Leste was colonized by Portugal (Portuguese), while Papua was colonized by Netherlands as well as other areas of Indonesia. Papua is never invaded or colonized by Indonesia but it's the victim of the Dutch Colonialism as well as other areas of Indonesia. When Timor Leste, firstly named East Timor, joined in the Republic of Indonesia, most of countries in the world against it, while the integration of Papua became a part of Indonesia was through the process of diplomacy and already passed by the UN results "Act of Free Choice" in 1969.

The integration of Papua back to the lap of Homeland (Indonesia) is "FINAL". If FPM activists exist to make it problems and argue that "Act of Free Choice" is illegal, it all is only efforts from separatists to gather the support by covering the historical fact. All efforts by FPM are just for the sake of private interests by that group, some activists who argue to fight are for the fate of Papua with various ways even they go abroad. The demonstration, strikes, armed resistances, etc just bring Papuan people to the bottom in their lives, while FPM activists will not feel sufferings felt by the Papuan society because they live happily abroad.
