EU Parliamentarians support Free West Papua campaign

“A former Dutch colony as being half of the whole island with the still present Papua New Guinea, together being the biggest island of the world with a population not having any roots with Indonesia at all. After the Indonesian take-over with the help of the American “diplomacy” (self-interest?) of John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert, who feared that the Russian influence with the Indonesians (the Sukarno-time or also named “Bung Karno”) was getting too dangerous in the American eyes they just forced the Dutch to abandon Dutch New Guinea (NNG) very much against the will of the Dutch government and specially named the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Luns (later Navo-Secretary General). A small country like the Netherlands couldn’t do much, left and the country was literally robbed and emptied in a short time; renamed as “Irian Jaya”.”
