“West Papua is a de-colonisation issue. The Act of Free Choice (in 1969) was very questionable, basically a sham.”
RALPH REGENVANU (RR): There is also a need for the whole process of the vote of self-determination to be revisited, in light of the fact that the UN-supervised vote when it happened back in the 1960s (The Act of Free Choice) was very questionable, basically a sham. So that needs to happen again because the people of West Papua haven’t been given an opportunity to decide on their future. And it’s really a decolonisation issue.
