There is no end to the harm that weapons do.
From deforestation and the poisoning of lands and waterways to the carbon emitted and materials consumed in their manufacture, weapons destroy ecosystems and contribute hugely to global heating. The expenditure of public funds on weapons impoverishes other portfolios, reducing the budgets for health, education, housing and earth repair. The dispossession that follows military and corporate invasions has caused an internal refugee crisis, with an estimated 75 000 displaced people at risk of malnutrition and disease as of December 2022. Beyond all other impacts, funerals are the most grevious marker of foreign military exports to Indonesia. West Papuans grow tired of burying people who were caught in crossfire, mistaken as combatants, left behind in conflict zones, went to a demonstration or otherwise drew the fatal attention of TNI-POLRI troops.
