Yesterday, IPWP was launched in Guyana, South America.
Members of the Guyana Parliament representing 6 parties, made a series of passionate and principled statements in support of West Papua’s right of self-determination and condemning Indonesia’s occupation of West Papua.
Rashleigh Jackson, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs for Guyana and a former President of the United Nations Security Council said: “It is time to bring to a successful end the persistent and courageous struggle of the people [of West Papua] for freedom and independence. The campaign to free West Papua is eminently worthy of support which I give wholeheartedly.”
The meeting was praised by Buchtar Tabuni and Filep Karma, Independence leaders and political prisoners.
