Hold the AFP accountable


This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the Senate that:

  • Reputable human rights organisations report significant human rights violations committed by Indonesian police and military in West Papua;
  • These violations are committed with impunity;
  • The Australian Federal Police and Australian Defence Forces provide substantial support to the Indonesian police and military, including D88, Brimob and Kopassus, the worst human rights offenders;
  • The nature and extent of this support is not fully disclosed;
  • No conditionality or benchmarks are attached to this support to ensure Indonesian police and military respect human rights

We therefore ask the House to call on the Government to:

  • Condemn human rights violations everywhere, including in West Papua;
  • Vigorously raise concerns about human rights violations committed in West Papua with the Indonesian Government;
  • Take action at the United Nations to hold the Indonesian Government fully accountable for human rights violations committed by its security forces in West Papua;
  • Ensure that Australian Government aid does not enable human rights violations anywhere, including in West Papua;
  • Initiate an independent audit of the effectiveness and human rights risks associated with all programs involving Indonesian police and military receiving Australian Government funding.

Tick the checkbox below to be sent email updates from collaborating organisations: #MakeWestPapuaSafe Campaign and Wage Peace.

    The best way to make West Papua safe is for nations at the UN to pressure Indonesia to pull out the mass murdering TNI & POLRI from the country and let the people decide their own political future. There should be a ban on all military aid to the TNI and POLRI until all the war criminals in its ranks are made to appear in the International Criminal Court. Indonesia


    An Australian government that truly supports human rights would ban all support and ties to POLRI and the TNI – especially D88. Brimob and KOPASSUS.


    Please do not vote for candidates in the 2019 federal election who do not agree to such a ban.

    Australia and other UN members are complicit in the human rights violations alleged as meeting the definition of genocide under the UN genocide convention due to their training and arming of the Indonesian military. Under section 3 of the Convention the ‘rulers’ and public officials (military) can be put before a competent court, tried, and convicted.

    Independence for West Papua. Stop Indonesia and Australia controlling the people of this region. Violence does not work. Disgraceful behaviour from our federal police as well. Indonesia stop been the bully in this region. We all remember East Timor.
