ILWP co-founder discusses West Papua on ABC’s Lateline


Jennifer Robinson, co-founder of ILWP has appeared tonight on ABC’s Lateline program discussing why three West Papuans scaled the fence to the Australian Consulate in Bali over the weekend and where they are likely to be now.

‘Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed or disappeared by the Indonesian forces. Today the situation remains incredibly difficult. Peaceful activists who dare to speak out against human rights abuse, or more sensitively for Indonesia, raise concerns about asking for a referendum for self-determination, are routinely arrested, beaten and tortured. This is a very serious situation and one that the international community has not to date paid sufficient attention to.’-Jennifer Robinson
