Biak massacre

West Papua protest

West Papua advocates are calling on Pacific nations to raise the issue of Indonesia's human rights abuses on the 24th anniversary of the Biak massacre, reports Susan Price.

Over the weekend of July 4 and 5, West Papuan solidarity activists visited Darwin to work with Aboriginal people to protest and organise against the Australian government’s complicity in atrocities committed by Indonesian forces against independence activists in West Papua. The weekend included forums, band nights and a smoking ceremony to commemorate the Biak massacre in 1998. On July 6, the participants set up a protest embassy on the lawns near Northern Territory Parliament House.
