Haluk bars two Papuans from Port Vila meeting

Chairman for the Working Group of the all West Papua pro-independence organisations Markus Haluk, 34, says pro-Indonesia West Papua Autonomy campaigners Franz Albert Joku and Nicholas Simion Messet are enemies of all Papuans who love their freedom to define and decide their own destiny, and cannot be allowed to attend the planned all Papua reconciliation conference in Port Vila next month.
As long as they remain pro-Indonesia, they won’t be welcome at the meeting as it is strictly for those who love their freedom and will do anything to defend it.
Franz Albert Joku and Nicholas Simion Messet are believed to have been indoctrinated by Indonesian authorities to appeal to all Papuans living in the jungle and abroad to return home saying their country is not what it used to be and is perfectly safe for all of them to go home to.
Haluk says, “These two guys are using the Indonesian flag while we are using the Morning Star flag so it is illogical to say that they are part of our business. They are not standing up for us pro-independentists to become a member of MSG so we cannot accept these people to be part of our meeting”.
Asked how soon they expect to complete their new application, Haluk says they are “super confident” to be able to form a new all Papua umbrella organisation to submit their application for full membership of MSG by the end of the year.
Indonesia he says, has observer status at MSG only to whisper in the corridors but West Papua, geographically speaking, is a natural, physical, integral part of Melanesia so all 99.9% of Papuans are applying for full membership of MSG to take part in its decision making processes to contribute towards the direction that MSG is taking.
On the dangers of living in West Papua, Haluk says on June 16 2012, his friend Marco Musa Tabuni, 28, was shot dead by Australian trained Indonesian soldiers outside his house in Jayapura at 10 o’clock in the morning. The authorities did not authorise any investigation or court proceeding against his killers saying he was a guerrilla, an enemy of the state.
Tabuni was the chairman of a grassroot organisation controlling the masses. “At any time, a Papuan can be killed by an Indonesian labelling him a rebel, a separatist, a drunkard and so on. That is why we Papuans say our life and death do not depend on God but on Indonesia. When you ask them why they kill us, they shrug saying we are separatists or drunkards”, Haluk answers.
Haluk was arrested by Indonesian authorities three times. The first time was for escaping from custody on April 7 in 2009, the second time for organising thousands of demonstrators to close down Freeport Gold Mine in his country and the third time was for organising a student demonstration during the MSG so called fact finding mission to Jayapura on January 13 this year.
He was released by the Governor after thousands of members of his Dani Tribe marched on Jayapura and ordered the Governor to release him or “we will burn down Jayapura”.
The population of his tribe is 500,000 and is the biggest tribe in West Papua.
Papuan Global Campaigner for Freedom Benny Wenda who passed through Port Vila last year, is a part of Haluk’s group. Wenda is Haluk’s brother in law as he (Wenda) married Haluk’s sister.
