The people of West Papua have been suffering under Indonesian occupation since 1963. Over 500,000 civilians have been killed, and thousands more have been raped, tortured, forcibly disappeared and imprisoned. Foreign media and human rights groups are banned from operating in West Papua, so people rarely hear about the situation there.
The Free West Papua Campaign is bringing the story of West Papua to the world and campaigning for freedom and justice in West Papua, to end the violence of the last 50 years.
