Transmigration Is the Last Thing That Papua and Its People Need | Jakarta Globe Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Transmigration Is the Last Thing That Papua and Its People Need | Jakarta Globe: Papuans are utterly marginalized by the Indonesian government, from the ministerial level on downwards. They have the lowest life expectancies in Indonesia, the highest maternal and child mortality rates, the lowest educational levels, and the lowest incomes. In the hinterlands where most indigenous Papuans live, the presence of the state is found in shuttered schools and empty clinics. The area hosts the last active insurgency in Indonesia, and the majority of Papuans support independence because the state has no relevance in their lives. Special Autonomy has provided nothing beneficial to ordinary Papuans: returns from Papua’s mineral wealth are soaked up by a constipated bureaucracy or otherwise misused.

Twitter Mocks Double Standard in Response to Militia Takeover of Oregon Federal Building - Mic Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Twitter Mocks Double Standard in Response to Militia Takeover of Oregon Federal Building - Mic: On Twitter, critics alleged the slow response of law enforcement to the brazen attack on federal authority was at least partially due to the perpetrators' skin color and conservative politics.

Some pointed to the double standard of seemingly trigger-happy U.S. police, who killed at least 1,152 people last year, a disproportionate number of whom were people of color. Some also smelled a racial explanation for why no one in the media or law enforcement community was rushing to label the men terrorists.

Italian government investigates after five pregnant women die in a week | World news | The Guardian: In the most recent case, 30-year-old Giovanna Lazzari died on New Year’s Eve during an emergency caesarean at a hospital in Brescia. The mother-of-two was eight months pregnant and had been admitted two days earlier suffering from a fever.

“Giovanna sent me an SMS in the middle of the night, telling me she was in serious pain and that she wasn’t receiving attention from the doctors,” her husband, Roberto Coppini, told Ansa news agency.

He was later called to hospital by doctors and was told his wife had lost the baby, after which Lazzari was taken into surgery to remove the foetus. A hospital spokesperson was not immediately available to comment on media reports that Lazzari died of a haemorrhage.

Benny Wenda Bantah Tudingan Kapolri Dalangi Penyerbuan Polsek Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Benny Wenda Bantah Tudingan Kapolri Dalangi Penyerbuan Polsek: “Badrodin Haiti dengan kekanak-kanakan menyalahkan saya atas kematian tiga polisi Indonesia di Papua Barat yang jelas tidak memiliki hubungan apapun dengan saya. Saya sungguh-sungguh membantah tuduhan konyol yang termasuk dalam gelombang kebohongan dan propaganda terbaru yang disebarkan oleh pemerintah Indonesia untuk melindungi pelaku yang sebenarnya,” ujar Benny, menuding balik Kapolri.

“Polisi Indonesia tahu betul saya tinggal 9.000 mil (14.484 kilometer) jauhnya dari Indonesia –di pengasingan di Inggris, dan saya seorang pemimpin kemerdekaan yang sepenuhnya menjunjung perdamaian,” kata Benny.

Benny menyatakan selalu menganjurkan solusi damai untuk Papua Barat sehingga semua warga Papua Barat mampu memenuhi hak dasar mereka untuk menentukan nasib sendiri melalui referendum kemerdekaan.
