Moved to format "West Irian Jaya Province, Indonesia"
Name and country, no need for brackets.
I'd like to move the page, in accordance with the recently announced name change  to West Papua (province), and change West Papua to a disambiguation with Western New Guinea and the province... Sound good? 220.127.116.11 19:57, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
- Not yet. The province name has not been approved officially. Is it? Wait until it has been an official name. — Indon (reply) — 09:13, 7 February 2007 (UTC)
- Please wait until its official. I've already reverted similar changes to the Indonesia article. (Caniago 09:48, 7 February 2007 (UTC))
Missing historical context
Why isn't there an article on the "Free West Papua" movement and the long-standing oppression of the indigenous population? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:14, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
- The material is covered reasonably well, at the time of my writing, in the Papua Conflict article Anarchangel (talk) 22:20, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
Conflicts with referenced article
"In 1969, the United Nations supervised the Act of Free Choice in which Papuan leaders decided in favour of joining Indonesia." Apparently this is not what occurred at all, and the discrepancy needs to be resolved to meet Wikipedia standards.Jlodman (talk) 18:10, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
