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.

    I have been an activist for peace since 1981. West Papua is our near neighbour needing support and compassion. Australia seems to be involved in military actions overseas without end. This must not continue. There is no CLIMATE for WAR. Only last year our Australian government funded a huge QMS Billboard advertisement on the Princes Highway entering Portland, Victoria. It read; ’JOIN THE THOUSANDS OF BUSINESSES IN THE WORKFORCE BEHIND THE DEFENCE FORCE" Back then The Turnbull Government announced plans to give $3.8 Billion dollars of taxpayer funds to support weapons manufacturers exporting overseas. Apparently militarism is a lucrative business. A referendum was held for marriage equality, yet supporting, manufacturing and exporting military equipment comes as a done deal on the evening news. Governments need to export more love and kindness. All we really want is PEACE.

    Do something please! All the best in your efforts to bring some common sense in horrible state of things.
