West Papua Information Kit

You can help change our world for the better

Project 20101010, commencing 10th October 2010

In 1962 the US "pressed the Netherlands" to trade human beings without their consent to Indonesian rule; it is not legal to trade humans. Our governments violated the UN charter and other agreements by not stopping UN resolution 1752 (XVII). The US National Security Council told our governments that trading the people of West Papua to Indonesia would prevent Soviet Influence in Indonesia, but our governments had no right to sacrifice West Papua to foreign colonial rule for any reason.

None of our governments have yet admitted that resolution 1752 (XVII) was a mistake. The torture and murders in West Papua will only stop when our governments admit the true cause of the abuse.

You can help free West Papua from this illegal action.
People who are free of colonial rule can ask your government questions designed to get an admission of truth, and encourage our governments to comply with the existing legal obligation of ending colonization.

Part 1 of this project is revealed below - a letter asking four simple questions. If you are a citizen of any of the 108 UN members who in the Cold-war allowed UN Assembly resolution 1752 (XV), then you could send a letter like this, and please send any written response you receive from your government to myself or the network of West Papua support groups.

And do you have a friend in another of the 108 countries whom you believe may be interested in asking their government? Then please consider asking them. Hoping to hear from you and your government.

Part 2 and this project's goal of self-determination will depend on the answers we get from the UN members. But the process of self-determination was agreed to in 1960 and we only need help guide our governments implementation of their previous agreement (1514 & 1541).

So far letters have or are being sent to the governments of:
Australia, United States of America.

Example for Australia:

US example:

UK example:

P.S. if you are a citizen of a nation that joined the UN since 1963, just change the template letter from "Were UN General Assembly resolution 1752 (XVII) and the [country's] vote in accord" to "Was UN General Assembly resolution 1752 (XVII) in accord".
This first response from Australian government, is a letter worthy of being ridiculed. We have re-stated our request.
