Fiji NGOs stand with Papua

THE Fijian civil society movement stood in silence opposite the Indonesian Embassy in Suva today to protest against killings and human rights abuse in Papua.

Police arrived several minutes later to speak with Shamima Ali, head of the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre and chair of the NGO Coalition on Human Rights.

Representatives of at least seven local and regional NGOs gathered during the lunch hour to stand in solidarity with the people of Papua and support an end to violence and human rights abuse.

Police units patrolled the area but the event was peaceful.

A vigil service to support the people of Papua will be held at the Holy Trinity Anglican Cathedral on Friday from 12pm-2pm.
