West Papua Information Kit
Irrespective of abhorrent events since August 1962 to today ;
United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1541 (XV)
specifies without leeway for debate,
"Principles which should guide Members in determing whether or not
an obligation exists to transmit the information called for under Article 73 e
of the Charter".
Resolution 1541Resolution 1541 Principle IV states :
Prima facie there is an obligation to transmit information in respect of a territory which is geographically separate and distinct ethnically and/or culturally from the country administrating it.
The island of New Guinea is on the Australian continental shelf, it is geographically separate from the administration of Indonesia ;
the colonial territory which Indonesia sign the New York Agreement accepting responsibility for administrating was Melanesian and is Melanesian meaning it is ethnically separate and distinct from the Javanese ethnic administration of Jakarta ;
the colonial territory of West New Guinea is culturally a nation speaking over two hundred Papuan languages and is culturally separate and distinct from the Javanese culture administrating the colonial territory ;
the territory of West New Guinea fulfills Principle IV specification for Prima facie status as a territory for which "to transmit the information called for under Article 73 e of the Charter."
Resolution 1541 Principle V states :
If they affect the relationship between the metropolitan State and the territory concerned in a manner which arbitrarily places the latter in a position or status of subordination, they support the presumption that there is an obligation to transmit information under Article 73 e of the Charter.
The Indonesian 'Special Autonomy' law for the territory places it in subordination of Jakarta; the transfer of prisoners from the territory to Jakarta for trial, the conditions legally reviewed in the Yale University 2004 report "Indonesian Human Rights Abuses in West Papua: Application of the Law of Genocide to the History of Indonesian Control", media and travel restrictions, and other conditions known, places the territory in subordination of Jakarta.
The territory of West New Guinea fulfills Principle V specification for the presumption that there is an obligation to transmit information under Article 73 e of the Charter.
Every member of the United Nations is bond by its membership of the United Nations to comply with United Nations Charter and with General Assembly Resolution 1514 (XV)
Australia and every member of the United Nations including the Republic of Indonesia and the United States of America under United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1514 (XV) are required to speak up at the UN General Assembly for any colony; especially a colony we are profiting from.
The United Nations is recognized by ourselves and other nations involved as the international authority on colonization. Article 73 of the United Nations Charter requires colonial administrators "to transmit regularly to the Secretary-General" information about the progress of the colony.
Colonization is theft on a national scale, genocide is to deny the people you are killing have human value, colonization is to deny you are exploiting another nation of people. Nations and corporations will always deny they are colonial masters; and they will RESTRICT communications and free speech inside and from the colony.
People around the world who love freedom must resist such colonial repression.
- Edmund Burke (1729-1797)
