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.

    As a citizen of former colonizing country of what is now Indonesia and West-Papua I call on the Australian government to withdraw support to the colonizers in Jakarta.

    The west Papuan people have been betrayed by the international community starting with the so-called act of free choice. They are constantly putting their lives on the line by standing up for their right to true self determination, and the Uniting Nations should insist on intervening.

    We must remain vigilant to prevent massacres and injustice in West Papua as well as hold the Australian gov accountable for any complicit actions (or lack of action) to ensure human rights are protected. The retreat into “it’s their ( Indonesia’s) sovereign right” to do what they want is absurd and cowardly.
