My friend, Franzalbert Joku, a leading journalist who now lives in Indonesian Papua says ...Confrontation approach based on decades long claims are simply not leading anywhere. In time they will lose credibility. The government here (in Indonesian Papua) monitors but is unmoved. Prefers to persist with political and constitutional reforms, as well as development programs underway in earnest. Benny Wenda and company must help their foreign NGO supporters sell stories to be able to help them earn their meals. Papuans are increasingly assuming the role of running their two autonomous provinces themselves as provided for under the autonomy laws.
He also comments ... Balanced exhaustive incisive analysis and insights are needed urgently or Papua remains invariably squandered facing a bleak future.
