Papua Wants to Live Peacefully

Papua Wants to Live Peacefully

Until now the Free Papua Organization (OPM) continues to spread separatist ideology to separate from Indonesia. The fact is that OPM always afflicts the people of Papua and West Papua because it impedes development. The government must be firm in eradicating OPM so that people's welfare can be realized.

The hospitality of the people and the behavior that still upholds cultural customs need not be doubted. Moreover, this Earth of Paradise is famous for its abundant natural wealth. This is precisely what is likely to make outsiders want the right to ownership of the Papua region.

The OPM, which is vigorously advocating for independence on behalf of Papua, has another purpose. OPM which is popular for frontal attitudes and is classified as vicious towards the people of Papua makes people reluctant to respond to everything they do. Moreover, the OPM is familiar with violence and deviant behavior towards those who do not approve of Papuan independence. So the people of Papua wonder for whom is this OPM fighting?

Indonesia has won a number of national and international recognition with it. This is also stated in various agreements that strengthen the position of Papua in the archipelago, de facto and de Jure. Plus the statement of the Papuan people themselves who claimed they had been independent with RI. Isn't this already a major defeat for OPM?

The desire of the Papuan people to live peacefully as part of the Unitary Republic of Indonesia was seen on Sunday 1 December 2019 on the 54th anniversary of the Free Papua Movement (OPM). However, Papuans prefer to worship in the church. They refused to gather to follow the invitation of the Armed Criminal Group (KKB) which caused riots like in previous years. So that the atmosphere of Papua also looks safe and peaceful.

The people there have considered the OPM and other West Papuan pro-independence groups responsible for the riots and bloodshed in Wamena some time ago. Previously, this OPM was considered as an organization to fight for the interests of Papuans, but in reality it caused losses for Papuans themselves.

Actually Papuan love for Indonesia is quite high. In fact this is reflected in the Papua Special Autonomy Law. Where is the definition of a native Papuan, one of them is a migrant who has been appointed as a Papuan by figures or tribal leaders in the Papua region.

The strategy adopted by the government to fight separatist groups in Papua has been right. The government will carry out threat classification. Threats to armed criminal groups that commit terror and violence in Papua will also be dealt with in a strict and proportional manner.

What is done by the government in Papua will also affect efforts to strengthen diplomacy at the international level. Countries which previously provided space for Papuan separatists to continue to exist, will certainly slowly see that what these separatist groups are voicing becomes irrelevant.

True independence is rooted in the sense of security, comfort and peace that all citizens, including Papua, are able to obtain. For them there is nothing more desirable than to live a quiet life without interference from any party, including the separatist group, the OPM.
