#2 Essay - Pressing Issue

It's written in 2011 so maybe the issue is out of date...

There are several issue that faced by Indonesia but for me the most pressing issue is about Papua. Papua no longer wanted to be in the unity of the Republic of Indonesia. As I can conclude based on what I see, there are 4 main reason why OPM (Organisasi Papua Merdeka) wants to make Papua an independent country without any interference from Indonesian Republic.

First, historical problem and political status of integrating Papua to Indonesia. Second, unresolved military operation in Papua that harm the civilization. Third, the development process that does not include Papua's people make them feel eliminated. Last, failure of development that can be view in terms of education and welfare. As a student I played the role as an agent of change, I can spread the thought that we have to save Papua and treat them as an equal through social media like twitter and facebook. Hundreds even thousands of people can see it, spread it to the other and eventually there will be a positive change.
