Why

Join us for a global day of action for West Papua on the 60th Anniversary of the raising of the Morning Star Flag!

5pm 1st December 2021 at the State Library Melbourne
Time to stand in solidarity with the freedom fighters of West Papua to demand their right to self determination and an end to the violent repression by the Indonesian Military.

“The land of West Papua will always be remembered as the birth place of the Morning Star, which is the last glimpse of night as the sun rises. The Morning Star has guided seafarers to West Papua’s shores for thousands of years, and so too it will also guide us to freedom. The Morning Star is the symbol of our home, and represents our dream to live independently and in peace. This is why we will keep calling on our friends around the world to participate in raising the Morning Star flag alongside us, and continue asking then to show Indonesia they affirm our path to freedom and right to self-determination.”

This event will be taking place on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung of the Kulin Nation, sovereignty never ceded.
