For 50 years Indonesia has silenced our voices. Today we are trying to tell our story to the world. We are asking people and Governments around the world to support the Melanesian in West Papua at every political and diplomatic forums and levels; MPs from different parliaments have formed the International Parliamentarians for West Papua (IPWP) www.ipwp.org and are pushing their government to recognize West Papua’s rights to self-determination. And Lawyers also formed the International Lawyers for West Papua (ILWP) www.ilwp.org. We are asking everyone to listen to our story and support this struggle for freedom, peace and dignity says West Papua Independence Leader and Chairman of Koteka Tribal Assembly (DeMMAK) Mr. Benny Wenda in Parliament House, Port Moresby recently.
