This is a short report about the launch of an international parliamentarian commission in support of the West Papuan Independence Movement.
In 1963, in violation of international law, Indonesia occupied and colonised the West Papuan homeland in the western part of New Guinea. Since that tragic event the West Papuans are asking for a fair referendum about their independence. Now they won the official support from the British politicians Andrew Smith (MP from Oxford) and Lord Harris. They decided to set up an international lobbying network to promote the West Papuan Independence Movement.
