Papua Film and Discussion

This year marks the 47th anniversary of the Republic of Indonesia's annexation of the province of Papua from the Netherlands in 1969. Since annexation, there have been various human rights abuses carried out by Indonesian security forces, such as the killing of villagers and the intimidation of activists and journalists in Papua. Furthermore, Indonesia's growing civil society has not actively addressed the human rights situation in Papua, leaving many issues such as racism and security forces brutality unresolved even up to today.

In solidarity with our Papuan friends and activists, Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM) and ALIRAN is organizing an open screening on the human rights situation in Papua, which will be followed by a discussion session afterwards. This event will be attended by an Papuan Human Rights activist, Mr Wempie Fatubun, as well as activists from SUARAM and Aliran, where we will all give our input on how to improve the Human Rights situation in Papua.

I pray every day for my West Papuan neighbours across the ocean. I pray that God supports their struggle for independence. I pray for their victory. I pray that God gives them his wisdom. I want them to know I am one American who cares about their future and my brother is another American who cares and we are trying to tell as many as we can about the injustice in West Papua by the Indonesian government. God Bless You and may you feel his mighty presence with you! And as David slayed Goliath when all said it couldn't be done may God grant you victory by using wisdom and not emotion when you fight. Pray for God to lead you each time you go out against your enemy... you are his children and he loves you and freedom! God Bless You.
