    Today I personally contacted U.S. Congressional Speaker of the House of Representatives and communicated that a genocide is in progress in the Panai region of West Papua! I explained that is why the Red Cross was kicked out of West Papua and International Press Ban continues! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on in West Papua! The fact that over 26 villages have been burnt to the ground is evidence of genocide in progress! I have been ferverently writing to the Office of Human Rights U.N. and I intend not to let up until the U.S. government bans weapons sales to Indonesia and bans training for the Indonesian military! Indonesian military crimes against humanity is unacceptable in todays world!
    I have asked the U.N. to kick Indonesia out of the United Nations. I have asked the U.N. to hold a new and fair “Act of Free Choice” monitored by U.N. troops!
