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.

    West Papua remains an abandoned Non-Self-Governing Territory. The transfer of West Papua to the UN and then Indonesia was not conducted in compliance with the UN Charter.

    Self determination to West Papuans! Australian Govt and AFP should be brought to account for being complicit and secretive with Indonesia in committing these horrific human rights abuses of West Papuans and the exploitation of their resources
