The leaders and participants embraced the Free West Papua cause.
Yokal Alpheus Meage, from the FWPC, sang at the beginning and end of the talk by Paul Madden and we did the 'West Papua' - 'Freedom' chant. Many in the audience were impacted and choked up by what the Australian Government is complicit in.
You can read the talk by Paul Madden hereand feel free to use it. If you download the document and view using MS Powerpoint then you'll be able to view the potes too. There is also some basic slide animation that you can see if you run the slides in MS Powerpoint.
We added 32 people to our membership and our social network has also grown considerably.
A common understanding at the summit was that the Australian Government is only interested in rolling out the wishes of those pulling the strings and not the people of Australian. The Australian Government will genocide, make us sick, make us broke, and destroy the environment if it suits the wishes of those pulling the strings.
There is a growing feeling of the need to replace the Government and the FWPP want to be part of the reform.
West Papua is an integrity issue and if we can't trust the Government with the lives of our neighbours then we can't trust them with anything!
An irony is that the Government is focused on trade more than lives but they have still made us broke and are selling off our assets. They can be trusted with nothing!
