West Papua has been under illegal Indonesian occupation and corporate exploitation since 1969 and in that time over 500,000 West Papuans have been killed.
West Papuans are jailed for 15 years just for raising this flag.
BP is operating right in the middle of this secret genocide, making millions of dollars for the Indonesian government while West Papuans are evicted from their ancestral homeland.
“We West Papuans have witnessed our sacred lands destroyed by multinational corporations just to make more profit for the Indonesian government”, says Benny Wenda, West Papuan Independence Leader.
“While we West Papuans are imprisoned for 15 years just for raising our national flag, you have the freedom to speak out. Please tell your friends, you family and your MP about what is happening in occupied West Papua.”
“With international support, my people know we will one day be free.”
“I give this flag on behalf of my people of West Papua who continue to suffer and die under illegal occupation and genocide fuelled by BP”
— Benny Wenda, West Papuan Independence Leader
