After setting sail from Northern Australia, a group of activists are headed for the Indonesian-occupied territory of West Papua as part of a Freedom Flotilla. The flotilla is described by the organizers as an act of peaceful resistance, which aims to reconnect Papuans with their Indigenous neighbors to the south as well as draw international attention to West Papua’s fight for independence. The activists are calling for an end to the human rights abuses and environmental destruction that Indigenous West Papuans say they have faced during the last 50 years of Indonesian rule. FSRN’s Rachael Bongiorno reports from Cairns, Australia. This was recorded in the studios of 3CR.
