West Papua-Indonesia : Guardian Weekly Letters, 24 June 2011

Written By Voice Of Baptist Papua on June 21, 2011 | 10:24 PM

Western hypocrisy; breaking the boundaries; Roman's holiday
Human and animal rights
I was interested to see the article about Australia's suspension of live cattle exports to Indonesia because of inhumane slaughtering in Indonesian abattoirs (Cattle slaughter concern, 3 June). It is important that there should be intervention to stop inhumane treatment of animals wherever it occurs.
It might be said that the only opposition to the suspension came from those in Australia who are making profits from the exports and the conservative politicians who support them. They seemed to have little regard for the suffering of the exported animals.
If there is an outcry about animal rights, there should be even greater concerns about the violation of human rights. There are many military officers who have committed human rights abuses in the south-east Asian region. The Indonesian military (TNI) control of West Papua
means that the abuses are continuing.
It is sad that there has not been a similar outcry to call on all political leaders of countries that provide aid and training to the Indonesian military to cease this support until all the officers suspected of crimes against humanity are brought to justice. There should also be international demands that the TNI is withdrawn from West Papua.
The same 3 June issue carried extensive coverage of the arrest of Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serb general who has been indicted by the international criminal tribunal in the Hague. Surely, if it is good enough to bring Mladic to justice, then the TNI should also be indicted. After all, their crimes began in 1962, following the invasion of West Papua, and continue today. 
Human rights should be given at least the same priority as animal rights.
