Arrest of Human Rights Campaigner Peter Tatchell during State Visit of
Indonesian President Yudhoyono (London 31 Oct 2012)

London 31st October 2012: Human Rights campaigner Peter Tatchell joined the
Free West Papua movement to protest against the state visit of the Indonesian
President Yudhoyono in London. Peter finds it a disgrace that the Royal Family
and Prime Minister David Cameron are hosting Yudhoyono who is responsible for
genocidal mass murder in illegally colonised and occupied West Papua. He was
also implicated in past war crimes in East Timor. Peter got arrested by
policemen when he tried to unfurl a West Papuan flag as the presidential
limousine departed Westminster Abbey.
