Asia Pacific Greens adopt West Papua resolution
Updated at 1:06 pm today
The 3rd Congress of the Asia Pacific Greens Federation has adopted a resolution on the West Papuan self-determination struggle.
The congress was held at the weekend in Silverstream, near New Zealand’s capital, and featured delegates from a range of countries including Iraq, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia.
The resolution, proposed by Greens delegates from PNG, Solomon Islands, New Zealand and Indonesia recognises and supports the human rights and self determination of the people of West Papua as Melanesians and supports their bid for membership of the Melanesian Spearhead Group
The Federation requests that the Indonesian government has dialogue with West Papuan leaders.
It also supports West Papuans’ Pacific identity as Melanesians who should have a voice in Pacific leadership groups.
