Summary of events in West Papua (14 November -7 December) 2016).

West Papuan National Flag Day. 1st December

On the 1st December in 1961, the Morning Star was flown for the first time officially beside the Dutch Tricolor. The Dutch were finally about to give the West Papuan people their freedom. However it is one of the great tragedies that at their moment of freedom it was cruelly crushed and West Papua was basically handed over to Indonesia in 1963.

Fifty five years later, in a global day of action the Morning Star was raised around the world in an inspiring show of support for the people of West Papua. It is greatly encouraging to see this huge groundswell of support around the world and in particular in our region on the issue. This support includes Civil Society Organisations (CSO), churches, governments and individuals who raised the flag in great numbers on the 1st December.
