HE has shot dead head of OPM Hengky Wanmang and several others at the end of the celebration of Indonesian independence on 16 August 2020. Very embarrassing Indonesian face in the land of Papua. Too sadistic and the outrageous military brutality of Indonesia in the land of Papua so far.
In celebration of Indonesia’s national anniversary to 75, the country was shot dead of the group of independent Papua or OPM led Hengky Wanmang at the river coffee Timika West Papua. Hengky Wanmang died being shot dead by the Indonesian military army or TNI. The celebration of Indonesian independence is celebrated with the blood and water of indigenous Papuans in the land of Papua. Indigenous Papuans on the loss of Indonesia’s belief are in Papua land. Blood and water are working on our homeland.
Not only shooting in Timika only. There was intimidation andc beatings and torture took place in Tambraw district on 16 August 2020. Indonesia has no patience to spend the indigenous Papuans as well as the National Liberation Army of West Papua. Situations like this, we feel that we are being spent and being killed every day.
One of the best solutions for indigenous Papuans today is that it must be the recognition of West Papua’s independence on 1 December 1961. The recognition must be expressed by the United States as the responsibility of the past mistakes, as well as those of the Dutch Government, and the state of Indonesia on the manipulative West Papua status and lies through the New York Agreement on August 15, 1963. It is a sin on the issue of West Papua status that has not been accounted for by all three countries here.
In welcoming Indonesian independence in Papua, the country celebrates by eating blood and drinking water death from OPM in Timika. We indigenous Papuans have no complete war power. We had no guns. We only watch all the murder of Indonesia in West Papua land. We see for ourselves that our father and mother were killed and shot by the Indonesian military. We just cried the blood over all our heartache. However we only request recognition from all countries on the status of West Papua.
We indigenous Papuans congratulate the independence of the blood and bones of the Papua natives that you country Indonesia spend, eliminate, kill, and shoot dead like Hengky Wanmang in Timika Papua province, and torture some people in Tambraw district, West Papua Province. The Decolonisation Commission must acknowledge the ethnic destruction of indigenous Papuans by the Indonesian state during this time and acknowledge our independence on 1 December 1961 in the past.
