Re: “The future state of Palestine”, Opinion, yesterday.

It’s rather disingenuous for Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi to pontificate and lecture the world on how to solve the Palestinian situation, when her own country is engaged in a brutal, racist, colonial occupation of the black people of West Papua, New Guinea. 

If she’s so worried about people struggling for independence, let her prove her concern by urging Indonesia to free West Papua.
