PROTESTERS AT SENTANI AND JAYAPURA TODAY

A SERIES of protests has taken place in West Papua in support of Vanuatu’s plan to address human rights abuse by Indonesia.

The protests in Sentani and Jayapura led to some 80 arrests by security forces.

Vanuatu has promised to address Indonesia’s occupation of the former Dutch colony when Pacific leaders meet in Nauru tomorrow.

Pacific governments led by Fiji and Papua New Guinea continue, however, to support Indonesia which has attempted to reduce Papuan numbers through internal migration.

Vanuatu hopes to gain support for West Papua to be enlisted in the United Nations decolonisation list
