AWPA Update No 1/ 2022 15 January 2022

Welcome to our first update in 2022. Happy New Year to all.
There has being no improvement in the situation in West Papua. In fact, the situation is deteriorating with security force operations over the past years creating large numbers of internally displaced persons (IDPs). The media in Indonesia usually blame the OPM for all armed attacks but it should be remembered that the mainstream media are quoting official security force spokespeople in reference to these attacks. There are many actors involved in West Papua but the truth will always come out through local media and the people in the territory. However, these attacks lead to military operations causing local people to flee in fear of their lives. Incidents of intimidation and torture of Papuan activists and human rights defenders have occurred and the Papuan people face racism and discrimination on a daily basis. The resources of West Papua continue to be exploited by Jakarta……..
