JawaPos.com – A number of indigenous Papuan communities in the mountainous region are declaring peace in Papua which coincides with the anniversary of the birth of Pancasila on June 1, 2022.
The Papua Declaration, which was initiated by the Papua Indigenous Peoples Institute (LMA) and took place at the Wamena Education Field, Jayawijaya Regency on Wednesday (1/6), was attended by thousands of residents.
“We, all indigenous Papuans, hereby declare that we are determined to resolve the Papua issue with dignity and achieve a peaceful Papua,” said LMA Papua Chair Lenis Kogoya at the declaration.
On that occasion, LMA also read out the decisions of their deliberation which was held in Wamena on May 31, 2022. One of the results of a number of decisions, for example, was the prohibition of the formation of prohibited organizations.
“It is forbidden to form organizations that are not in accordance with customary law and Indonesian laws and regulations. Unofficial organizations are prohibited from using state money in any activity,” he said.
As a result of the deliberation, the LMA also supports the development of Papua by involving all parties within the framework of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.
“The LMA supports and approves Otsus and the formation of new autonomous regions (DOB) for three provinces in the first phase, and in consideration of splitting two more provinces into 7 customary territories,” he said.
In addition to supporting the new autonomous regions of the three provinces, they also requested the new autonomous regions of the districts in the interior of Papua.
