There is a saying that always encourage us not to remain silent such as "The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything ― Albert Einstein and of course First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. "Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me"
Our task is to raise awareness about the plight and silent genocide of West Papua. The great majority of the funds will go towards the advocacy strategy which seeks to raise awareness about West Papua and lobby key decision makers to speak up and against the acts of the Indonesian government. the ultimate beneficiaries are the people of West Papua because our aim is to shake the Indonesian government through international advocacy to put pressure on Indonesia to do the right thing.
Our plan for the next coming year is to host monthly meetings and discussions with people of South Africa to raise awareness and rally support for West Papua. We also plan to run lobbying activities focusing on members of parliament. The idea is to get the members of the South African parliament, to start talking about the issue and ultimately mandating government to speak against Indonesia. The last part is organising international solidarity campaigns such as meetings with other people of the world to strengthen support and efforts to assist Papuans to obtain their liberation. Some part of the funds will go towards renting a working space and necessary office tools to advance our goal. The money is needed urgently, we are planning to consult with lawyers to see the possibility of applying pressure to the South African government to uphold the values of the constitution even in their dealings.
The support you give us will be no support for us but for the human race, an act against human rights violations, killing of children and women. You will be contributing towards a noble cause. To us, our support will mean our desire to see a liberated world, where people can enjoy their lives in peace, harmony and prosperity. This is not just our vision but that of the world.
We will always declare you support in our communications and efforts, for we know that we are nothing without your generous support. Fund the liberation of the people because our freedom is meaningless if others cannot enjoy it too.
We stand for liberation and self-determination of West Papua.
