Free West Papua Campaign Newsletter
September 2016

It’s been a ground breaking few months for the campaign. In May, an historic meeting in Westminster marked the official launch of the call for an internationally supervised vote in West Papua.

Following on from this, the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) has continued to make progress in its bid for membership of the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG). Currently, Octo Mote of the ULMWP is at the UN General Assembly in New York, working with the Prime Ministers of Tonga and the Solomon Islands to raise the issue of West Papua.

Feeling a bit lost when it comes to the ULMWP and the MSG? Look no further than the handy guide below.

We are also building up to October’s global month-long music event, Rockin for West Papua. It’s not too late to get involved, and there are lots of ways you can show your support, from using #MUSICISAWEAPON to organising your own gig. Lastly, if you’re a UK supporter please invite your MP to the next meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on West Papua, on 12th October.

Thank you, as ever, for all your support and solidarity. Papua Merdeka!
