  Political Millenarianism and the Economy of Conflict: Reflections on Papua by an Activist Anthropologist
Papua's merdeka movement is a moral crusade for peace and social justice on earth, and the tremendous depth and breadth of its popularity must be understood as emerging from the region's long history of millenarian movements.
Merdeka is not simply a request for self determination in the political sense, but a demand to be included in reciprocal dialogue with the powers of the globe-and in so doing, to gain the dignity of being human.
