They want freedom and humanity

Dear Editor,

Re: Official rubbish West Papua protest 

West Papua is resource-rich. Of course they're going to rubbish any protests that seeks de-colonisation and independence. As for the idea that P.N.G are pro Indonesian, that's in itself more Indonesian propaganda. 

With the internet now, we can see for ourselves what is being done to the people of West Papua. We are no longer in the dark about the truth. 

A movement has started and it will only keep growing. 

Indonesian soldiers and police have themselves captured footage of their evil work, taking selfies with the dead bodies of West Papuans, videos of beatings and intimidation. 

If you beat a people hard enough and long enough, of course they're going to say whatever you want them to say, but deep down inside, they want their freedom, their land, their humanity. 

Free West Papua!
