Beware of Provocative Issues in West Papua




There are many maneuvers that are played by other countries to destroy Indonesia for their own individual or group interests. Those maneuvers can be in politics, economy, social, culture, or mass media which aims to silently colonize and disunite Indonesia.
As example, the political indoctrination practiced by Free West Papuan activists is passing on pamphlets or posters with modified information – is often telling untruth – including pictures. It is not a surprise anymore if we find pictures which are actually taken few years ago in newspapers or articles created by KNPB, ULMWP, or its supporters tell that Papuans on the picture are abused by Indonesian police and military. They are also accused by Free West Papua activists on conducting genocide towards Papuans. Actually, West Papuan separatists are practicing propaganda and changing the truth that happened on the field into a lie.

The role of media in publishing the information is so influential. We must see anything from various perspectives, different sources, and different references in order that we can distinguish the news that aims to provoke or not. Provocation is not a new thing to disunite Indonesia, we must be aware of any provocations. We must not be easily disunited by the provocation. Remember, Indonesia was once a great nation, a nation that once was dubbed as Asian tiger because of its solidarity and firm stance to resolve any problems. Why are we now become frail and disunited?

We have felt the bitterness of being colonized by other countries, but we were able to handle it together. Do not be easily provoked by issues that try to destroy Indonesia. The first president of Indonesia, Ir. Soekarno, once said in a speech:
“The Republic of Indonesia is not owned by only a group or a religion or a tribe or certain culture, but belongs to all of us from Sabang to Merauke!”
“We are a great nation, we are not a weak nation. We do not beg, we do not ask for help, especially if the assistance was followed by certain conditions and requirements ! Prefer eatting cassava but being independent to eating steak but being slaves.”
This speech has a deep meaning that NKRI (The Unitary State of Republic Indonesia) can reach its independence not just because of one tribe or one cultural community, but the struggle of various tribes in Indonesia from Sabang to Merauke. If we want to become a great nation, we should not be easily provoked by those who are able to disunite the Republic of Indonesia, always remember what Ir. Soekarno said, NKRI is NOT NEGOTIABLE !
