Sentani, Jubi – The family of Theys Eluay confirmed their objection to the National Right Human Commission’s plan to revive the investigation into the Papuan charismatic figure.

“We, the children and family, have never been told about this plan. If it was actually to come, please tell us,”  Eluay’s older son, Boy Eluay, said in Sentani on Monday (23//2/2015).

“What is it about?” he asked.

For him, his father Theys Eluay was a great Papuan leader. His death deprived Papuans of a figure who could speak for their aspirations.

He was also especially regarded as a great leader for people in Tanah Tabi (Tabi Customary Area).
“In particular, as Sentani people and part of Eluay Family, I lost the house’s pillar. As the older son, I should say to those who want to investigate my father’s death for not taking my father’s name like a flagpole,” he said.

He further said it’s enough to let only Theys Eluay becoming a martyr for the Special Autonomy in Papua.
“Someone else took benefit on the Special Autonomy, while we just stay and keep asking and asking, what did this country offer to the children of a great leader in this land?” he said.

Meanwhile at the same place, Eluay’s other son Yanto Eluay said in the Sentani culture, a death in a family has a price.
“My father’s death is for example. As a son in this house, I must pay a penalty to my father’s uncles.  This simple thing has not got attention from the government, and now they talked about the investigation of my father’s death?” Yanto Eluay said. (Engelberth Wally/rom)

Tambrauw, Jubi – WWF Indonesia Papua Program is mapping the indigenous peoples’ landmark with 1: 50,000 scale to support the preparation of the Spacial Plan of Tambrauw District, West Papua Province.

The two-day training conducted on 17 – 18 May 2018 in Sausapor is also aimed to build a partnership with the local government and other institutions who have a similar concern in mapping.

WWF Indonesia Program Coordinator Wika A. Rumbiak said that the mapping of primary sites in Tambraw District is a series of the process of socio-cultural and spatial mappings which conducted to show representative of indigenous people’s space pattern.

“Hopefully, this participatory mapping can accommodate the rights of the community in spatial planning, which stated in Article 2 of Government Regulation (PP) No. 69 of 1996,” said Wika, Saturday (19/5/2018).

The training result, said Wika, is a common understanding about developing a rational and measurable planning method. That is by applying participatory mapping and the development of expertise and knowledge, in processing spatial data with GIS (Geospatial Information System).

The training involves some related regional government offices including the Village and Community Development Office (Dinas Pemberdayaan Masyarakat and Kampung), the Environment Office, Regional Development and Planning Board, and the Tambrauw Forestry Office.

“The involvement of regional government offices in this training is to prepare the participatory mapping facilitators and to improve their knowledge on Geospatial Information System (GIS) for inputting spatial data entries,” said Wika. (*)

Book review “Intelijen and Pilkada” written by Stepi Anriani – Jubi / Arjuna

 

Jayapura, Jubi – It began from her curiosity about why her fellow activists who are considered smart, experienced and have broadened networks are reluctant to enter politics; Stepi Anriani wrote a book entitled ‘Intelijen dan Pilkada (Pendekatan Strategis Menghadapi Pemilu)’ – Intelligence and Election (Strategic Approaches to Election).

“The reason is simple, they do not have money, while for being elected as candidates of the legislatures, regents, mayors or governors need billions of rupiah,” she said in her book review conducted in Entrop, Jayapura City on Wednesday (16/5/ 2018).

The 225-page book discusses what the intelligence is and how one can use it to win regional and national elections without spending much money, because being aware or not, everyone has conducted intelligence activities in their everyday life to obtain accurate information to be verified and justified.

In the book, she categorises the intelligence into seven definitions, namely as information, knowledge, product, activity, process, organisation and profession. “The stronger a person’s intelligence is, the less money he spends.”

She also wrote how making the intelligence approach and winning an election without cheating. There are six main points can be applied: do not recruit wrong campaign team, strong character, strategy, counter-propaganda, gaining supporters and facing the opponent.

Attended the book review, Papua Police Chief Inspector General Boy Rafli Amar, Papua Military Commander Major General George Elnadus Supit and Chairman of Papua Election Commission Adam e Arisoi became keynote speakers, while students, academics, community leaders and journalists joined the event.

“Intelligence is not just a domain of state apparatus, but anyone who wants to succeed in any field must able to understand to use it, including in politics,” said Boy Rafli. According to him, the National Police and Military use the intelligence to map vulnerable areas, especially potential social conflict areas.

In the same place, Major General George Elnadus Supit said intelligence and politics are like two inseparable coins. It is impossible to take power without money, but it depends on how the person manages his ‘intelligence’.

Meanwhile, Arisoi rates the book as very interesting because it tells the connection between intelligence and regional election.

The author of the book, Stepi Anriani was a graduate from the Public Administration of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Padjadjaran. She pursued her master study on Intelligence Strategic Studies at the University of Indonesia. She worked as an expert in the Indonesian House of Representatives and resource person in several government agencies. Currently, she pursues her doctoral study on Policy at the University of Indonesia and teaches in several places. She dedicates her book to her companions (Indonesian citizens). (*)
