Historic meeting of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua to take place in the UK
April 3, 2016
Almost fifty years since the so called ‘Act of Free Choice’, the time has now come to put an end to the bloodshed, and allow the West Papuan people an opportunity to determine their own political future.
On May 3rd, the International Parliamentarians for West Papua will be joined in London by members of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua and the International Lawyers for West Papua, in order to discuss their belief that West Papuans have a fundamental right to self-determination.
This month we need all of our supporters across the globe to join in our April actions and help us build momentum for this important moment in West Papua’s history.
