New message from the Free West Papua Campaign regarding Indonesia’s latest interference in Melanesia’s internal affairs. (Indonesia is treating Melanesia like it’s colonies and Melanesians like it’s slaves)
Yet more disturbing news from Fiji as the Indonesian government has once again, paid yet another blood money bribe to the government of Fiji in an attempt to stop any sympathy from Fiji to join the growing list of nations supporting West Papua joining the UN decolonization list.
Earlier this year, as the photo shows, the Indonesian government paid $500,000 dollars to the government of Fiji to try to stop them from supporting West Papua joining the regional Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG).
(Full report on the last bribe here: http://freewestpapua.org/go/761)
However, we regret to report that the Indonesian government has just paid another $30,000 dollars specifically to “help” Fiji host the UN decolonization committee from 21st to 24th May.
This “donation” was made by Indonesia’s new ambassador to Fiji and as the Vanuatu Daily Post correctly reports
‘Jakarta’s cheque-book diplomacy reflects its determination to silence any murmurs of regional support or discussions within the MSG on the issue of re-enlisting West Papua on the decolonization list.

This March, all students at the The University of the South Pacific wanting to go to an Indonesian propaganda based lecture about West Papua had all their belongings searched by the police, told that they were not allowed to ask questions, banned from displaying the West Papuan flag and had West Papua related posters torn down from their own property.
Any student accused of supporting West Papua was threatened with expulsion from the university.
We have said it before, and we will not stop saying it:
We know that you, the true brothers and sisters of Melanesia, wil not be bought off against your fellow Melanesian brothers and sisters and wantoks by Indonesian blood money.
We know that just like Vanuatu and as with all our friends around the world, will always stand up for your fellow people in West Papua, and that it is with your support, that West Papua will finally join the Melanesian Spearhead Group and further to the Pacific Islands Forum and that ultimately, West Papua will join the world as a member of the United Nations and at last as another free brother of Melanesia.
Help to pave the way for full freedom for West Papua and so all of Melanesia.
Thank you very much for all your support
MELANESIA MUST RISE UP!
