Evil Propaganda by Dominic Brown

January 23, 2011

A young inexperienced film maker, Dominic Brown entered the social sphere of evil propaganda, controlling what people would see in West Papua. A propaganda film was made “forgotten bird of paradise” in 2009 with the expressed aim of “spreading lies about West Papua and trying to create conflict in the peaceful land of Papua”.

His visit and his film shows that Papua IS NOT CLOSED TO FOREIGNERS, he and hundreds of foreign journalists have visited the place. Indonesian people in West Papua from hundreds different ethnic groups are very wise because the evil propaganda style by Dominic Brown has no impact whatsoever in instigating conflict among the tribes.

Dominic tries to demonize Indonesia, especially the military to attract worldwide attention. However,  his cheap propaganda was so shallow, immoral and full of lies. So, it is normal if people will see his work as insignificant propaganda.

In December, Esthy Reko Astuty, director of promotions at the Culture and Tourism Ministry, announced that Indonesia’s eco-cultural strategy for 2011 would see environmental issues such as climate change featured in promotional activities as well as a program launched to encourage more visits to museums.

December 12, 2010

Jakarta Globe

By: Oktovianus Pogau (a member of the Papua Solidarity Society).

The government should understand the root of the conflict in Papua first before adressed other problems.

One of the main duties of the president and vice president of Indonesia is to maintain the integrity of the Unitary Republic of Indonesia. In confronting this task, it should be noted that internal threats usually have a bigger impact than external ones. And sometimes, the threats from outside the country become even more visible when the country itself allows conflict to grow within its own borders. Read the rest of this entry »

March 4, 2010

Mummi not only exists in Egypt, but also in Papua province. Papuan mummi is made by evaporating its human body fluids so it becomes a dry, hard, and rigid body. In this process, it is not required ingredients or preservatives. Dani tribe’s mummi called “Hun” means spirit, that is believed to protect and bring a blessing for its future generations.Someone can be mummi if during his/her lifetime was very popular such as a head or warlord. Preservation remains to be done as a tribute to charismatic figure mummi.

Prosess of mummi can only be done by couple (a husband and a wife). Husband’s duty is to complete preservation, starting from preparing wood until heating a dead body, while wife’task is to prepare food for his husband. A man uses sharp wood to puncture dead body until all fluids out of the body.
