JAKARTA, Indonesia – The jumpy video shows a prisoner lying in a jungle clearing in eastern Indonesia moments after troops allegedly sliced open his
abdomen with a bayonet, sending intestines tumbling from his stomach. Using the little life he has left in him, Yawen Wayeni lifts his arm into the
air, and says weakly, "Freedom! Papua ... Freedom!" At the sound of his muffled voice, gun-toting, uniformed officers resting in the shade
FREEPORT IS LEACHING OFF INDONESIA AND THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN IRIAN
Once again, the actions of a US corporate company have caused the people to revolt in Irian Jaya against a human rights abusing military of
The biggest open pit goldmine in Indonesia, run by Freeport Mcmoran, and one of the biggest tax payers in Indonesia is located in Irian Jaya, the
place where the Papua freedom movement is.
Unfortunately, Freeport is actively paying corruption money to the military for security, as well as hammered out an agreement with the Indonesian
government. This agreement leaves the indigenous and local people of Irian Jaya totally in the rain and they continue living extremely poor and in an
under educated situation.
No wonder they revolt, as Irian Jaya/ Papua is an extremely mineral rich region. Another nearby mountain to the Grasberg mine has recently led to new
discoveries of huge amounts of gold and diamonds as untapped resources. Freeport definitely has an eye already on it.
Also, Rio Tinto is with 13% share involved. Of Course Australia is watching closely, maybe even supporting the Papua Freedom movement?
As Freeport is listed on the Dow Jones, US population is hugely benefiting from the blood and poverty of the Irian people.
