INTERIM PRESIDENT: THE LINE SEPERATING PNG AND WEST PAPUA WILL FALL LIKE BERLIN WALL

Share

September 15, 2021: Happy 46th independence anniversary to Papua New Guinea. We send a message of solidarity from your brothers on the other half of New Guinea. We are there with you in spirit for this great celebration.

I know that one day all of New Guinea, from Sorong to Samarai, will celebrate true independence and enjoy God’s creation on our green island. This is our long-term dream. With one half unfree, our island is not complete.

We are one island, with one ancestor. Just because a colonial border separates us, does not mean we are destined to be apart forever. One day this artificial line will fall like the Berlin Wall, bringing our people together once more. It is my heart’s dream to see elders from each half of the island meet and watch their grandchildren dance together in peace like the Bird of Paradise.

We continue to dream of liberating the people of West Papua from tyranny, 21st colonialism imposed by the Indonesian government. You have reached your 46th year of sovereignty – we have been fighting for the last 58 years for independence and freedom.

We will pray for your celebrations and thank the forefathers who liberated PNG. On the other side of the island we still struggle for our freedom, but our forefathers have already set our destiny. Now the new generation, in West Papua and PNG, must fight to liberate the rest of New Guinea.

One day we will join these independence celebrations hand-in-hand, with the Morning Star raised alongside the PNG flag. We will stand together and celebrate together.

I wish you all the best. God bless your country. Wa wa wa.

Benny Wenda
Interim President
ULMWP Provisional Government

    Enough! It is time to leave the Melanesians alone to live in harmony with their island of one Papua ! Freedom from tyranny of invasion & colonialism. Indonesia will you leave these people be? You must to gain respect & Trust, trade & commerce is the way, not subjugation & genocide, do what’s right & stand with head held high. You Know what you do is wrong even if you do not look, no press the crimes against humanity you hide, this was then, it’s time to go & give the dignity back to them & you, you know in your heart it’s true……
