Jayapura , 26/5 ( Jubi ) – Students said they appreciated the Executive Board of Cenderawasih University for taking a step forward to facilitate students when critiquing faculty leaders who are not pro- students, but they criticized the board for not being serious.

“Yes, we agree that there is a step forward done to bring students and Medical program and Social and Political Sciences faculty heads together but what is the point if they do not get the same solution ” the chairman of the Student Executive Board, Yoan Alfredo Wantibman said via mobile phones.

Previously, there was a meeting between University leaders, heads of the Medical program and the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences with the students at University Auditorium on Friday( 23/5). Then, during the meeting, Yoan, a student of Social and Political Science walked out of the room because there was no satisfactory solution.
“Medical students demanded the dean to resign as there has been no significant change for 12 years. We still use old facilities while the faculty’s revenue continues to increase each year. We are doubtful, there would be a game if it will be discussed and decide later by them, ” he said.

Coordinator of Student Solidarity of Health Care Faculty of Medicine ( FSMS – FK ) , Benyamin Lagowan added that what is demanded by medical students have been known by faculty leaders since last November 2013. For that it appealed to all parties to see and support this issue. He also expressed his disappointment to the senior faculty who is intervened in the action “The faculty should have helped by voicing the untruth and not to scare and terrorize us” he added.

Feronika , one of the medical students via text message to reporters tabloidjubi.com also deeply disappointed because all the parties do not comply with the collective agreement.
“I got a report that there is another medical student who is training at Jayapura Public Hospital. How we could progress if this case is still allowed. The lecturers should have shown good examples ” she said.

She further said that for students who got involved would encounter some difficulties when training at the hospital ” she wrote at the end of the message. ( Jubi / Mecky/ Tina )

Jayapura, Jubi – A Papuan legislator Maria Elizabet Kaize said the oil palm investments, especially in the southern region of Papua, have seized the indigenous peoples’ lands and corrupted the education of young Papuans.

Maria Kaize, a native woman from Anim Ha customary area, said oil palm plantations give a negative impact on the indigenous children’s education in the district of Merauke, Boven Digoel and surrounding areas because the school-age Papuans prefer to follow their parents than going to school.

“It is true that the awareness among the school-aged Papuan children, especially in southern areas, for schooling needs to be improved. Many of them prefer to follow their parents in the forest,” Maria Kaize answered some questions from Jubi on Thursday (19/04/2018).

She took Bio area of Boven Digoel District as an example. In this area, many school-aged children join their parents as palm oil workers. Her sister, who is a local teacher, told her about this information.  She further said that the similar thing also happened Genyem and Lereh, Jayapura District, when the oil palm companies just operated in those areas.

“According to a teacher from Genyem whom I met some time ago, they went to the oil palm plantation for looking the children. Maybe this method can be used in some districts in the southern Papua. However, it needs support from the government, customary and church leaders as well as the community,” she said.

When meeting with Hilal Elver, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, a local leader from Keerom, Servius Servo said the transition of community land to oil palm plantation harmed the local people because it rated very cheap.  In fact, in some cases, they changed it with sugar and salt.

“Besides for oil palm plantations, community and sago forests mostly used for road construction and government infrastructure,” Servius said. (*)
