Indonesia Pressured Us: PEPERA 1969 Testimony

by Papuan Voices [Merauke] August 19, 2012

Witnesses talk about what really happened during West Papua's (supposed) Act of Free Choice (or in Indonesian Penentuan Pendapat Rakyat, PEPERA), in July 1969. The testimonies reject the Indonesian government's claim that the people of Papua willingly voted to be integrated with Indonesia. They say people were intimidated, tricked and even killed during the process. Mama Rosa Tambaib was the woman who read out the PEPERA statement of integration, and Elias Yos Moiwend helped the Indonesian Armed Forces to socialise PEPERA to villagers.
