“A call to truth and not an international crime’
We invite you all to a SOLIDARITY GATHERING for the 20 freedom fighters on the ‘Freedom Flotilla’ that have begun a revolutionary journey from Lake Eyre (in South Australia), Nimbin, Cairns, Cooktown and now heading to Merauke (West Papua) over sea.
Join us to stand for the safety of this Flotilla, as they approach Indonesian waters. As Indonesian government’s decision is to set its Airforce and its Navy against these twenty Australian peace-builders on two small yachts.
We call to stand together against Foreign Affairs Minister Car’s propaganda that supporting West Papuan’s right to self-determination (peace, security, and justice) is a‘cruel hoax’. In addition, the Liberal Party’s Foreign Minister’s endorsement of militarism (‘Indonesia has a right to deploy its military or whatever means it wishes against the flotilla’.)
We invite those delighted with Aboriginal and Papuan leaders on the Flotilla re-establishing relations between peoples separated by rising seas 6,000 years ago and more recently by colonial politics .
Kevin Buzzacott, whose Arabunna Nation owns Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre), said the cultural visit by one indigenous peoples to another has angered Indonesian and Australian governments.
Together We Rise Up on the 2nd September at Brisbane’s DFAT, We share our voice in our discontent about the Australian Labor Party’s support of Indonesia’s Special Autonomy in West Papua, which violates indigenous human, civil, and political rights.
