The protests marked the 49th anniversary of Indonesia's coerced annexation of West Papua. Indonesian government plans to continue to sendsettlers from outside into West Papua ("transmigration") has prompted protests from Papuanorganizations who fear the further marginalization of Papuans and growing communal tensions.Several international organizations have protested continued, longstanding efforts by theIndonesian government to cover up human rights violations by preventing journalists and rightsobservers from traveling to or within West Papua. Following large scale peaceful demonstrationsin Serui district, Indonesian security forces have launched a crackdown involving sweepoperations. The shooting of a civilian aircraft as it landed at an airport in the Puncak Jaya areacaused civilian casualties and has prompted unproven charges by authorities that the perpetratorswere the Papuan armed resistance organization, the OPM. Papuan leaders have called on thegovernment to conduct a transparent investigation and to engage with local civil and governmentorganizations to put an end to ongoing tensions and conflict in the Puncak Jaya region. They notethat security force resort to force in dealing with incidents harms innocent local civilians who areoften driven from their homes.
