Portrait of photojournalist Ben Bohane (rear, centre, wearing hat), with members of the Organisasi Papua Merdeka (OPM) (Free West Papua Movement) Central Command, armed with bows and arrows, in the highlands of Irian Jaya (West Papua). There has been considerable resistance to Indonesian rule and occupation of Irian Jaya, both through civil disobedience, and through the formation of the OPM, which has waged a separatist campaign since the 1960s. The movement's military arm is the Tentara Pembebasan Nasional (TPN) (Liberation Army of Free Papua).
