The West Papua Freedom Flotilla has arrived back in Gove in the Northern Territory, describing their attempt to get the attention of the province’s Indonesian masters and the world’s media, a success.
The Flotilla was led by a group of senior indigenous Australian’s, and began it’s trip by road from Lake Eyre in Central Australia to Cairns, then by boat to West Papua.
Their purpose was to raise awareness of what they claim are injustices in the Indonesian Province.
That purpose put them at odds with the Australian government, which told the group personally if they were arrested they would not be given any extra curricular assistance.
