Call to ACTION: West Papua applies for full MSG membership

February 4, 2018

Dear Free West Papua family,

New momentum needed for West Papua’s full MSG membership!

From 10th to 15th February the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) will meet in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea and discuss the United Liberation Movement for West Papua’s application for full membership of the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG).

The people of West Papua need YOUR SUPPORT to help them gain full membership and reach this essential landmark on the Road to Freedom!

Full membership status for the ULMWP within the MSG will be the most significant accomplishment step so far for official recognition of West Papuans as a Melanesian people; a designation that officially challenges Indonesia’s right to occupy the region on a new diplomatic level.
Please go here for more information on MSG, ULMWP and West Papua.

We need our global voices to come together again, in song, in acts of global demonstration, in silent protest, to show our support to West Papua’s full membership to the MSG.

Let’s join our voices and spirits and come together in solidarity and love for the United Liberation Movement for West Papua’s application to the MSG.
