SUPPORT FOR WEST PAPUA
About 20 academics, librarians, journalists, students and Pacific issues activists gathered at the Pacific Media Centre at noon today for a Morning Star flag-raising ceremony as part of global actions for West Papuan freedom.

Kevin McBride of Pax Christi Aotearoa and the Asia-Pacific Human Rights Coalition (APHRC) spoke of the important human rights concerns for West Papua and how “we’re all part of the oppression” with New Zealand’s “complicity” with Indonesian policies.

PMC’s Dr David Robie talked of the “vision of hope” with mounting solidarity and support in Pacific Island nations, especially the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

Just read about petition presented to Parliamentary Committee re West Papua.

Congratulations for raising awareness about the issue.

I am appalled at the lack of action by New Zealand, Australia and the U.N. The stories of abuse and documented evidence of genocide cannot be ignored. One day this is going to Leonbe a source of immense shame for those who chose to turn away.
