FWPP 100 Members News

Advance Australia Fair


Wow! We have hit 100 members! We have hit the Ton!



Our goal of 500 members is getting ever closer.


 



If we each get four of our family or friends to become members then we have achieved our first goal! We can then register our party and our objective of activating Australia to Free West Papua becomes palpable.

The Free West Papua Party is the catalyst for making the Impossible Possible!


Here’s a thought for you to consider.

Our Australian National Anthem captures our Australian values and it also serves as a measuring stick for how we can measure ourselves.
Let’s read part of our national anthem:

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;

Our anthem sings about Freedom.
We may be free but our neighbour West Papua is not free!

Our government has put West Papua under Indonesian military control and sustains their killers.[i]


Furthermore, I ask you - are we Australian’s really free?

The same Australia Government that sustains the West Papuan genocide denies that genocide is taking place and does what it can to keep us in the dark[ii]. For 50 years the Australian government has kept us in the dark concerning the genocide.

You and I are under the same regime as West Papua.
By freeing West Papua we also help to free ourselves!
Let’s read some more of our national anthem.

We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

We all want Australia to advance and we also want Australia to advance fairly.

Right now the Australian Government is struggling to advance because it too busy sustaining West Papua’s killers.


For Australia to advance further it must first free West Papua!

We Australians are better than the evil that our government is doing to West Papua!



Merdeka!
Paul Madden

Free West Papua Party Leader, June 2015

The strength of the Indonesian position lies in the fact that … they must know that, even if there are protests about the way they go through the motions of consultation, no other power is likely to conceive it as being in their interests to intervene. . . .
I understand that the exiles may find support in the Australian press. But I cannot imagine the US, Japanese, Dutch, or Australian Governments putting at risk their economic and political relations with Indonesia on a matter of principle involving a relatively small number of very primitive peoples.

· D. J. Wyatt, British High Commission, Canberra, to D. Murray, Foreign Office Southeast Asian Department, May 25, 1968. PRO: FCO 15/162 DH1/7:
Significantly, this attitude was shared by the Australian Government, the only Western power with any remaining direct interest in the issue (Australian New Guinea shared a border with West Irian). In late May 1968, a British diplomat, Donald Murray, reported that from Australia’s point of view, the more quietly the act of self determination passes off next year the better.”
