> On December 1st, 1961, West Papua raised its flag and celebrated its independence as a united nation. Unfortunately it wasn’t to last long. Within a year the Indonesian military had invaded the island of Papua, and with the help of the United States, began a permanent occupation. The brutal colonisation of West Papua has killed hundreds of thousands of people. >
> 54 years later, it is illegal to raise the West Papuan flag or take any action towards independence. There are over 50 Papuan political prisoners currently behind bars. >
> But Papuan people have never stopped struggling for their independence, and on Decmber 1st we will stand with them in soldarity. For independence, self-determination and human rights. While Papuans are brutally enslaved by Indonesian control, mining profits and the world’s apathy; none of us are truly free. >
