news from Free West Papua Campaign
Shocking images have emerged showing some of the villages burnt to the ground by Indonesian security forces operating in the Puncak Jaya region of the West Papua highlands.
The photos clearly show the devastating effects that the sweeping operations have had, with villages burnt to the ground by Indonesian troops. Hundreds of people including women and children remain in hiding in the forests of the region, as Indonesian military operations against the indigenous Papuan population intensify. Livestock and crops have also been destroyed meaning those left are now hungry, with no shelter.
We urge people to forward these photos onto their local and national media organisations.
