Only last month Indonesia blacklisted 3 journalists trying to get in to West Papua. There are currently numerous websites being shut down in Indonesia for speaking out about West Papua, and citizen journalists are repeatedly intimidated, arrested and even cases of torture, for reporting in West Papua.
We are asking all friends to help highlight the hypocrisy of Indonesia hosting this event, and to use it as an opportunity to create global attention for West Papua.
On May 1st last year 1,700+ people, including children, were arrested just for peacefully demonstrating on the streets of West Papua.The biggest mass arrest in Indonesia since Suharto took place, and the world heard so very little due to the brutal media blackout there.We would like to use this as an opportunity to shine an urgent light on the situation and get the truth out.
Free West Papua Campaign
We are a peaceful, public campaign, whose aim is to give the people of West Papua a voice, and to help end the secret genocide in West Papua by supporting their call for an internationally supervised vote. We work with politicians of all parties, NGOs and global campaign groups, both national and international, towards this aim.
