Free West Papua Campaign Newsletter
March 2018

Dear friends,

Sincere thanks for your continued solidarity with the people of West Papua. Sadly there is a tragedy unfolding which needs our urgent attention. A devastating earthquake recently hit Papua New Guinea, and we are asking you to once again show solidarity with the people of this region by urgently supporting our appeal to help.

We do have some good news: Yanto Awerkion is to be released by the end of this month! Thank you for all your support! We have also just held our first Rockin’ For West Papua fundraising event of 2018 which was a huge success. Whether you support us through sharing news, joining our actions, or donating to our appeals, we thank you.

The Free West Papua Campaign.
