Supporting the rights of the indigenous peoples in West Papua

    1. Petition by

      Karin Hermanska

      Brno, Czech Republic

 

The rights of indigenous peoples in West Papua are permanently violated by Indonesian dominance. Their tribal territories are exploited by multinational mining corporations and tribesmen are forcibly resettled and killed. Indonesia applies the policy of Neocolonialism in the attempt to gain a total control of the Papuans’ lives, to impose its civilization patterns on them and to uproot their ancient culture.

It is our moral responsibility as global citizens to speak up against the oppression of the indigenous peoples of West Papua and the violation of their human rights.

      Lets together create a world where every ethnic group of people lives happy without being opressed by others. Humanity comes before any other thing in this world. Let respect human race in this world regardless of their culture, where they come from, where they stay and what kind of technology they have. There is no way this world will live a meaningful life when other groups of people are still opressesd by others who think they are dominat because of money and technology.
