West Papua included in UK Labour Party manifesto

November 22, 2019

In a landmark development, the UK Labour Party has included West Papua in its 2019 election manifesto, pledging to address the ongoing struggle as a core element of British foreign policy under a Labour Government.

Support for West Papua’s self-determination has been long standing within the UK Labour Party, with their leader Jeremy Corbyn a founding member of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua, and Alex Sobel MP the Chair of the All Parliamentary Group for West Papua and IPWP.
