“We have a responsibility to care for our brothers and sisters from across the water. We must bring the water and the fire, the love and the music to heal the country and move in solidarity.” Uncle Kevin Buzzacott, Arabunna Aboriginal Elder<

The voyage of the Freedom Flotilla to West Papua in 2013 was an unprecedented event of creative resistance to the Indonesian occupation of West Papua. The initiative of Indigenous Elders of Australia and West Papua built global solidarity and highlighted the abuses of human rights and land rights carried out under the occupations of their lands on an international stage.

“The Republic of Indonesia kills people like me, Amungme people, the land the military own in Tamika was not bought, it was taken at gunpoint. The Indonesian military is used as a tool by Freeport mine to kill us.” Mama Yosepha Alomang<

The Freedom Flotilla campaign continues to fight for the rights of West Papuans on land and at sea. Follow the journey on this website or via twitter & facebook.

“We work for world peace and justice, we start from our region, the Pacific.” Jacob Rumbiak, Foreign Affairs Minister of the Federated Republic of West Papua.
