Since some years ago, the free west Papua has been becoming one of the things that the Indonesian government highlighted. That is because there are still some groups in Papua who want to be free from the Indonesian government. They want to make sure that Papua is able to make their own nation. Because of that reason, a lot of steps have been taken by these groups in order to realize their main purpose. This one includes getting the attention of the other nations in this world.
For your information, one of the leaders even said that he had collected more than 1.8 million signs for the petition to free west Papua from Indonesia. Unfortunately, based on the west Papua news, this thing alone is not enough. That is because petition and sign without the recognition is something useless. That is why they have to be recognized by the United Nation when they want to separate from Indonesia. To make it even worse, one of the members in UN who have the power for this kind of problem said that he was being used as the propaganda material by the separatist movement. If this thing really happened, that means wet Papua will never be free from Indonesia.
As an addition to that condition, the representative of Indonesia in UN said that those signs were hoax. That is because more than half of the people in Papua do not really care about being separated from Indonesia. That means this is one internal west Papua conflict that happen between all of the people in Papua itself. This is not something good at all considering the fact that all of the people in Papua have to stay together if they want to be free from Indonesia. However, if this kind of thing is just a selfish dream of some groups, then it is better for Papua to stay and be part of Indonesia forever.
