DARWIN – PROTEST at Indonesian Consulate Independence day opposing the Indonesian Government’s statement of August 15, 2015..

“The United Liberation Movement of West Papua claims of rampant human rights abuses in West Papua are unfounded and unsubstantiated”
On Indonesia’s Independence day in Darwin a rally was held at the
Indonesian Consulate to remind all guests that rampant human rights
abusesin West Papua CONTINUE under the flag of Indonesia and that
the flag of West Papua is not the Indonesian flag, but the Independence Morning Star flag ‪#‎PapuaMerdeka‬https://www.facebook.com/events/1629581630637023/
The Indonesian consul in Darwin had retweeted and applauded the deceitful Indonesian Government statement. The new Consul in Darwin uses local and social media to try and portray a perfect image of his relations with West Papua – attempts to cover up the continued rampant human rights abuse using renowned Indonesian Government lies and deceit. The Indonesian Consul in Darwin calls West Papuan people his ‘little cousins’ to try and hide the rape, murder, torture and well documented ongoing genocide in West Papua.

The Indonesian Consulate Darwin Protocol and Consular Affairs secretary
came to meet us on our arrival and stated “Today is a special day of the
whole year – we have very important guests here – you didn’t let us come
to your Forum in July so you cant protest here today – please not today”
We replied that we would not negotiate as the Indonesian Government forces continue to arrest and have murdered West Papuan people who raise their Morning Star Merdeka flag and although we respect the people of Indonesia, until West Papua has it’s freedom, your flag will be covered in blood.

The protest continued loudly. Later a male guest or Consulate staff member was forced by Northern territory Police to return a mobile phone he stole from
a protesters hand by reaching over the fence, pulling her arm and stealing her phone from her hand – which was recording at the time.

The Indonesian Consul has laid a complaint with the Northern Territory Police Commissioner in an attempt to charge us with ‘disturbing the peace”
