WEST PAPUA

West Papua
(Bows Against Helicopters)

Oct 21st 2019

Only swimming distance from the borders of Australia lies the island of Guinea, where half the population is currently fighting to become free from an increasingly strict Indonesian government.  Its an issue we need to talk about with helicopters, phosphorus and corruption all throughout, with people dying every day at the hand of one of our closest neighbors. This week we chat to 3 expert witnesses about the West Papuan movement.

Raki Ap (One of the leading voices on the West Papuan movement)

Dr Janet Steele (The director for the institute of public diplomacy and global communication)

Jason Macleod (Teaches civil resistance training and education for people in non-democracies at the University of Sydney).
