The last two weeks has seen the largest mass demonstrations across West Papua in nearly 20 years. The West Papuan people are sending a very clear message to the Indonesian government: enough is enough.

The West Papua Uprising began on August 18th, after West Papuan students in Surabaya were racially abused, called “monkeys” and tortured by Indonesian security forces. Since then, the protest movement has swept across the country, demanding that West Papua’s fundamental right to self-determination be respected through a referendum.

The Indonesian government were quick to crackdown on this peaceful movement, blocking the internet and cutting phone lines. They then started arresting, shooting and killing West Papuan people, including in Deiyai where at least 6 West Papuan people were massacred by the Indonesian Security Forces on 28th August.

Later this week there will be a Global Action in solidarity with the West Papuan people and their struggle for justice. Across the world, we are calling for people everywhere to take part in demonstrations, protests and acts of solidarity with West Papuans with the message that after over 50 years of suffering, it is now time for West Papuans to be allowed to choose their own destiny.
