Public meeting: The struggle for freedom in West Papua.
Jacob RUMBIAK- Foreign Affairs Minister of Federated Republic of West Papua
Ronny KARENI - Independent Advocate at Rize of Morning Star camapign
For 40 years, Western countries such as Australia have been complicit in Indonesia’s brutal occupation of West Papua. The harsh regime has helped facilitate the exploitation of the area’s riches in natural resources by Western and Indonesian companies. Papuans see little benefit from the pillaging of their land and have the lowest standard of living in Indonesia. This forum will look at the struggle for self-determination and an end to Indonesian occupation of West Papua.
