goodmorningpapua.com – The Keerom Indigenous Community held a peaceful declaration to turn down the anti-NKRI action in Papua, Thursday, April 21, 2022. This action was aimed at supporting the government against groups opposing the special autonomy and division policies.
This declaration was led by the Chief of the Keerom Indigenous Tribe, Herman Yoku. There are three points of attitude statement in the declaration of indigenous peoples regarding demonstrations rejecting the government policies.
First, to invite all people who live and settle in the Land of Papua to participate in maintaining a conducive public security [Kantibmas] situation in Papua Province. Second, invite all elements of Papuan society not to take actions that can disrupt the security and social security situation during Easter and Ramadan.
Third, firmly reject any demonstration by illegal groups in this country, such as the West Papua National Committee (KNPB), the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP), the Papuan People’s Petition (PRP) and so on on behalf of the Papuan people.
According to Herman Yoku, the group’s demonstration will make the public security [Kantibmas] situation unconducive. In addition, these actions do not represent the wishes of the peace-loving Papuan people.
“The aspirations of the Papuan people cannot be represented by one particular group, let alone by groups that are considered illegal in this country, so we strongly condemn any action in the name of the Papuan people,” said Herman Yoku.
