Plundering Papua

Published: January 9, 2009, Author: JayTaber

Price of Autonomy

As part of the vast Indonesian colonial archipelago, West Papua and East Timor have suffered horrendous abuse at the hands of the Indonesian military–a military supported by both the United States and Australia. As two of the four self-declared opponents of human rights for indigenous peoples, the US and Australia work hand in hand with transnational corporations plundering Papuan and Timorese resources for North American and European markets. As ETAN reports, autonomy for West Papua and East Timor comes at a horrible price.
