Spirit of the Kumul!!! Posted Sep 10, 2002 3:14 PM
We must salute the BRAVE. While Somare, Mekere and the champagne set of Waigani sell the land of the kumul to highest bidder, ordinary villagers and ex-soldiers are helping their brothers to the east with guns, training and tactical help. Half the OPM are Papua New Guineans. THe OPM are given refuge, food and supplies by Papua New GUineans are given weapons by people along the border. We are involved whether we like it or not.
Papua New GUineans, especially those on the island of New Guinea, cannot deny their brothers to the East in their time of need.
There is a war going on. It may be silent, but blood is being spilt. Because the government is deliberately shutting its eyes to West Papua's plight, does not mean that we the people must be blind as well.
