We must act urgently to protect West Papuans from Indonesian brutality.
IN WEST Papua, it's appeasement, violence and business as usual for Indonesia. There is a vast difference between promises made to the people of West Papua and what actually happens.
President Yudhoyono once pledged to solve the Papuan issue in a ''dignified, just and peaceful'' manner.
During 2011 he made similar guarantees to heads of state such as President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
