West Papua Support Petition

 

We the undersigned recognise that:

1. Continued human rights violations in West Papua are unacceptable, with many, including the UN Secretary-General's Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide, warning that without action by the international community, the West Papuan people risk extinction.

2. Everyone has a right to genuine self-determination, including the West Papuan people; and

3. The only way to achieve this peacefully is through an internationally supervised vote on self-determination in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolutions 1514 and 1541 (XV), as was the case, for example, in Timor-Leste. The 1969 'Act of Free Choice' represented a gross violation of these principles.

Details: A peaceful, public campaign, whose aim is very simple: to give the people of West Papua the freedom to choose their own destiny - a freedom they have always been denied under Indonesian military rule. We work with politicians of all parties, and also with other NGOs and campaign groups, both national and international, towards this aim.
