Jayapura, Jubi – Member of the working team of United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP), Markus Haluk said that President Joko Widodo’s visit to Papua will not change the focus of the Papuan people’s struggle to independence.

“The Papuan people focused on fighting for the independence and sovereignty of West Papua,” the former male secretary general of the Central Highlands Students Association told Jubi by phone on Tuesday (May 9)

He said even though the President would pay 1001 visit to West Papua land, it will not affect the commitment of the Papua people to self-determination.

In a different place, the Coordinator of the Jayawijaya Community Forum and the Central Papua Mountains (FMJ-PTP), Mully Wetipo also asked the President to pay more attention to schools in Papua that have no teachers.


“Now Jokowi comes for Indonesia Health Card and Indonesia Smart Card, it does look good but what good are the cards if the service does not exist,” said Mully. (*)
