WEBINAR - While new Papua provinces will exacerbate human rights abuses

Support the people of Papua in their fight for their human rights. For far too long, Indigenous peoples in Indonesia's easternmost island of Papua have suffered endless human rights abuses at the hands of Indonesian authorities. Now, recent development plans by Jakarta – made unilaterally without any meaningful consultation or participation of affected Papuans – will further put the human rights and livelihoods of the Papuan community at stake Register to support Papuan people in their fight for human rights. Join us for this online discussion from 7.30pm NZ time, on Tuesday, July 12. Hear from a great line up of speakers discussing the implications of these recent developments and how you can take action to support Papuan people.
