Sign Now: #MakeWestPapuaSafe. Hold the AFP accountable

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.

    Semoga keadilan yang sebenar-benarnya juga dapat ditegakkan di Papua. Jika di Papua tidak, artinya di Indonesia juga tidak.

    The Australian government may save face only if they immediately own up to the reality of their contribution to genocide of the West Papuan people. This humbling reality is better faced today by turning around the ship and setting new policies regarding genocide of aboriginal people: no tolerance. Because black lives matter everywhere.

    Please consider that reconciliation and healing to avoid social unrest is critical. Mandating unfair punishment creates a toxic environment for the local populations and generations to come. The global community is watching now and this is the time for healthy leadership to move forward in these rapidly changing times. Colonialism is the source of too much generational pain and oppression.

    It is a source of great shame that Australuan leaders aided and abetted genocide in West Papua, East Timor, Acheh and parts of Indonesia by aiding the TNI & POLRI and given the Indonesian government diplomatic support as it committed these crimes.
