Free West Papua

After meeting with the indigenous Papuan community in Indonesia, now more than ever my heart cries out for the full democratic liberation of West Papua. These people are blood of our blood and flesh of our flesh, genetic and cultural Wantoks separated from us by the annexation of arrogant colonial powers. Papua New Guinea can NEVER rightfully call itself "...the big brother of the South Pacific" until we first acknowledge the genocide in West Papua and demand that the Indonesian government grant autonomy to our brothers and cease perpetrating the gross human rights violations against the Papuan people. One young West Papuan boy told me, "We are prisoners here... we have a lot of materialistic things but we are spectators in our own land. Our people have been killed. Our land occupied. We are not free." Join with me today in interceding for the freedom of the West Papuan people.
