Tell Obama to Support Human Rights in West Papua

  • Print

Our friends from ETAN have created an online petition addressed to US president Barack Obama, who will meet with Indonesian president Joko Widodo on October 26th 2015.

In the petition, ETAN urges Obama to support an end to human rights violations in the provinces of Papua and West Papua.

Specifically they urge Obama to condition U.S. support for the Indonesian security forces to concrete improvements in human rights, including credible trials of those who are accused of past and ongoing human rights violations; unconditional freedom for political prisoners; unrestricted access to the territory; and engaging in internationally-mediated talks between the Indonesian government and the United Liberation Movement for West Papua.
