Free Papua Movement

Free Papua Movement

This website is dedicated to raising awareness about West Papua’s legal right to independence and supporting West Papua’s increasing number of refugees and internally displaced persons. An estimated 45,000 people have recently been made homeless as the Indonesian military terrorises villagers with military sweeping operations. Thousands have also fled to neighbouring Papua New Guinea living in remote camps along the border.

About Us

We Are On A Mission

The Free Papua Movement aims to end the ongoing oppression in West Papua and bring freedom to the Papuan people. A humanitarian crisis is ongoing with the death of an estimated 500,000 West Papuans since the take-over by Indonesia in 1963. Legal scholars and academics describe the conditions as meeting the definition of genocide under the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment for the Crime of Genocide (see Journal Articles).
