Raising The Flag On The South Moluccas

On April 25th 29 villages on the South Moluccas will raise the flag of the Republik Maluku Selatan (RMS) as a protest against the failure of Republic Indonesia. This is not in compliance with point 3 of the Malino treaty* which has been signed on February 12th 2002. According to the Malino treaty the Indonesian Army has a direct opportunity and right (license) to eliminate each supporter of the RMS.

But who decides in an area without a legal system what is allowed and what is not allowed? The Indonesian army is well known for their ruthless interference with as result a blood bath in which previously mentioned article will become reality.

Some facts indicate a large scaled operation organised by the Indonesian army as a planned reaction on April 25th 2002. All army units, which consisted of several Moluccans are replaced by new army units (www.infomaluku.net). Recently many bombings and riots have been reported. The situation is highly tensed. Currently it is impossible to enter the South Moluccas without an Indonesian passport (www.infomaluku.net).

It is a fact that the villages will raise the RMS flag on April 25th. It is a fact that the Indonesian army will intervene with hard measures.

It is a fact that the international community needs to be informed about these coward less actions.

The question remains, who will and dares to be a witness of the anticipated bloodbath? And who will film these actions and distribute it throughout the world? The only answer we have on this question is: THE MEDIA, you….
