The oppression against aboriginal or indigenous people runs deeper than you would believe. It has always been a goal to remove us through divide and conquer tactics. When are we going to fight back?! 😔 #Repost @negrotoyahudah (@get_repost)
This Documentary is called "Forgotten Bird of Paradise."
"West Papua comprises the western half of the island of New Guinea, bordering Papua New Guinea to the east. It is one of the most remarkable places on earth. Swathed in tropical rainforests which are second in size only to those of the Amazon, it is home to many unique species of wildlife including tree kangaroos and birds of paradise. It is also one of the world’s most resource rich areas containing huge reserves of oil, gas, copper, gold and timber. The indigenous population number about 1 million Melanesian Papuans, many of whom still live subsistence or hunter gatherer tribal lifestyles. The diverse tribes of New Guinea speak some 15% of the world’s known languages, despite having less than 3% of the world’s population. Despite West Papua’s appearance as a tropical paradise, the reality for those living there could not be more different. It has been under Indonesian military occupation since the early 1960s, and over 500,000 indigenous Papuans have been killed during that time. Formerly a Dutch colony, West Papua was granted independence in 1961, but twelve months later fell under Indonesian control following an audacious invasion by them. Despite sharing no cultural or ethnic similarities with the Papuan people – whom are Melanesian (people of the Pacific) – Indonesia claimed West Papua as its own, under a vision of uniting all the former Dutch and Portuguese colonies in the region. With a poorly trained and inexperienced military, West Papua was no match for the invading Indonesian forces."
