Journalists visit as Jakarta cautiously lifts the veil in West Papua
The problem one

We are not alone 2


An entry in the 2015 Rivers Award
for Writing on Peace & Harmony

Submerge your fingers in the water
Feel it, it’s life's graceful author
Fish and coral find home there
Birds and trees are able with her
Plant a tree, but what about water?
Spills and effluents, where do they gather?
Submerged in the water.
Fly River still mourns unfair

If it’s the sea or creek, do care
For you are made of it, do not litter
Appreciate how precious it is
Earth is the space we share
Water is the reason we are here
Cheers to water, she is our mother
Submerge in the water.
