All over the world we have some sort of fighting, wars, conflicts, protests, and unrest. In Papua, during a peaceful march protesting the control of Indonesia; including some heavy handed enforcement, hundreds were arrested. Of course, the authorities say they had reasons. Those who marched had no permit. What a load of bull! Do you really think the government would allow an anti-government protest to go on? Really! No way, Jose’!

So give these people a chance to rule themselves and take your control with you! Or if you don’t, a least be fair, open, and honest towards these people. Help them create a society they would be happy in!
