the NEW GUINEA REVOLUTIONARY ARMY stands for a change away from the corrupt path PNG has taken since independence.
this means a move away from involving asian businessmen, particularly chinese
the NGRA stands for a united New Guinea, with 2 states: "West Papua" and East Papua". PNG will be known as "East Papua", and the new nation simply "Niugini".
Bahasa Indonesian will be banned in Niugini.
Education will be free in the new Niugini.
Universities will recieve huge attention to make them world class.
Every young Niuginian who cant get educated through the normal system will recieve basic education and have a job waiting for them in the NGRA, it is a peoples army, where we aim to fill the void for all our young people wandering around aimlessly without a job. we will aim to educate troops as far as they want to be educated, as in the Australian system. However, the peoples army will also inlcude "national service" where young people help build the infrastructure we so deperately need, to fix the roads and buildings run down by years of curruption. NGRA troops will work in all facets of making our society more independant, from helping in hospitals to growing food and medicines, to improving water services, to environmental work replanting our forests that were lost to foreign logging companies. All young Niuginian men will learn basic training of 6 months to help defend our country if attacked.
The right for each young family to have land to build a home and garden is also very central to the NGRA principles, something that has not always been made available in the PNG of recent years, we want to make sure nobody misses out on that basic right, while still respecting the traditional land rights.
But most of all one of the key elements of the NGRA is that Niuginians will stop fighting with ourselves. We have to stop fighting each other and join together as one. Our west Papuan brothers and sisters need us now more than ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Learn how a revolution really works. There are plenty of successful examples that prove how idiotic you are with all these internet postings by nameless people. The only revolutions that worked had a leader who everyone knew the name and the face from the start.

The rebel army already exists, we have been building for years, this is your chance to be a part of the non-violent wing of the NGRA, are you gonna stand up and protest for West Papua and a free and united New Guinea, or are you gonna just stand there and do nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the time has come for all New Guineans to stand up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
before its too late and our country falls apart!!!!!!!!!!!!
the behaviour of Asians in our land is simply gutless and corrupt, they are the major cause of destruction of our forests, and they are making girlie bars and starting porn and sleezy nightclubs in our country, they have to go asap!
they are the cowards, dont ever be scared of them, we can take them out
the revolution is starting now, its time to prepare to fight the asians
and you wantoks in australia can help by coming to the protests on July 1
protest times and starting points will be revealed closer to July 1
in PNG, stand up and tell the next Asian you see to get out of PNG!!!
The reunification of the Island of Niugini as a complete and Independent state is a noble ideal that is also achievable. Though it will take time even decades to achieve this ideal. it is worthwhile implanting the seeds of this ideal now and to recruit the hearts and minds of countries that matter and the peoples that this ideal encompasses.
While your march as I understand it is purely to bring the western nations such as USA, UK, EU and USA to express their concerns and hopefully garner political dialogue regarding independence for Papua Province, your inclusion of this new ideal (Reunification of the whole island of New Guinea as a melanesian state)must also be spelled out clearly and voiced out stongly as well. Bearing in mind too that the new US president (Barak Obama) although a black man has an Indonesian stepfather so how does he figure in your strategy if you want USA to support you?
I have travelled to a few places in Papua Province including Jayapura and have been very downhearted at the sight of our Melanesian people(s). They walk around with an air of oppression looking like a subdued people in cultural depression. I have seen the same in Cairns/FNQ among the aboriginal populations. Yes the issue of Papua has hardly been solved, nor will it ever be solved the longer you allow this to continue.
Are we fighting Asians here? the answer is no. The Melanesians are Asians themselves. So while we may be black outside coloured by the burning equatorial sun, we are genetically Asians, being the first into Asia. So we ought to begin thinking like Asians ourselved, never mind the colour black or yellow.
As I noticed a few rhetorical people's comments in other postings.. And I agree with them that the names New Guinea and Papua should be changed too to names that mean something the a melanesian tongue.
Papua New Guineans have never had to fight for Independence. We were dragged unsuspectingly into it by the current PM who did it for his own agenda (now reportedly the wealthiest man in PNG) during an era when Australia wanted us out anyway so that it would not foot the bill for a sudden increase in its social benefits payments (approx $30 billion per year if PNGeans were Australians and on the dole).
For those who continue to critize you guys in what you are doing, I say this: your ignorance has not changed since you have come to Australia to study and work or live. The same ignorance has allowed the current corrupt PNG politicians to be voted into power and will continue to allow the country's wealth to be leached out and into a few pockets while the rest of our countrymen continue to live in dire poverty amongst a crime filled society with poor education and health. So I beg you to change your attitude, look into the future and do your best to try to help prevent the disease that has now reduced PNG to be classified as one of the 30 poorest countries in the world. Your help in changing our nation is invaluable.
