Join the OCNC (Oceania Coalition of Northern California); a Pacific Islander social justice organization, in participating in the Global Day of Action for a #FREEWESTPAPUA!

We will be raising the Morning Star flag in support of our West Papua brothers and sisters, and all those fighting for West Papuan freedom and self-determination.

Please take part and share the photos on social media to build a truly global picture of the support for a Free West Papua.

"The 1st December marks West Papua’s original independence day when the Morning Star flag was first raised in 1961 before being invaded by Indonesia. The flag is recognized as the national flag of West Papua and continues to be the defining symbol for a Free West Papua. Today, Papuan’s who raise the flag face arrest, torture and long jail sentences. Filep Karma was recently released after serving 11 years in prison for raising the flag on 1 December 2004. Flag raising ceremonies have been attacked by Indonesian police and military, shots fired into crowds and violently dispersed. Despite this level of repression the Morning Star flag will again be raised by West Papuans this year on 1st December and we want all supporters around the world to join them in a huge show of solidarity and awareness raising."

If you have a Morning Star flag, bring it with you to show the world that you want a #FREEWESTPAPUA!
