Petition Pressure Indonesia to hold a referendum on self-determination for West Papua

West Papua is a nation bordering Papua New Guinea to the East and was occupied by Indonesia in 1963 and was illegally annexed during the “Act of Free Choice” in 1969. Indonesia handpicked just 1,026 West Papuans and forced them at gunpoint to vote in favour of integration with Indonesia.

More details

West Papuans are still struggling for their right to self-determination, however, the Indonesian government continue to brutalise and persecute any West Papuan that calls for self-determination and freedom.
