Death is still the response Indonesia gives to Pacific people asking for self-determination.
Background is that West Papua has a lot of mineral wealth which US businessmen wanted, one of the mining executives Robert Lovett told Kennedy to appoint Lovett's friend Bundy as the US security adviser. A US suggestion in 1961 to make West Papua a UN trust territory was hi-jacked by Bundy who suggested the UN system could be used to trade the people of West Papua to Indonesia for America's benefit. Finally Kennedy submitted and the Dutch & Indonesia signed an agreement promising in 1962 how they would treat the Papuan people if the United Nations approved the agreement.
The 1962 agreement was asking the UN to occupy & administrate the colony, and offered that Indonesia would administrate the colony free of charge if the UN would be allowed up to seven years before allowing the Papuan men & women a vote on self-determination.
You can not buy & sell people under the UN Charter but article 85 of the Charter allows us the option to approve an agreement as defined in chapter 12 of the Charter, the international trusteeship system.
Without advance notice the agreement was added to the 1962 General Assembly agenda and a proposed text sent to Australia & the rest of the UN members less than 24 hours before the vote. France lead 14 nations refusing to vote, but the 89 other members including Australia voted in support of the US scheme.
The legal process is that West Papua is protected by our legal obligations under article 76 of the UN Charter, and that the UN Secretary General is to add notice of the General Assembly action (resolution 1752 (XVII)) to the agenda of the Trusteeship Council so that it can begin its duties under articles 85, 87, and 88 of the Charter.
But for 52 years the Secretary Generals have not exercised their duty of adding the issue of West Papua & General Assembly resolution 1752 (XVII) to the agenda of the Trusteeship Council. The result is that West Papua is being looted of resources and probably 500,000 people have been killed during the Indonesian efforts to prevent a referendum as detailed in the 1962 agreement from taking place.
Any UN member can stop the killing & illegal mining by faxing the missing agenda item, but our governments are too stupid to understand the long term benefits of ending the abuse.
