We call on Pacific churches to set aside Sunday, December 3rd 2018 as a day on which to remember West Papua in liturgy and prayer.

We call on our churches to wear red and black every Wednesday in support of freedom in Tannah Papua.

We call on Indonesia to immediately stop its blatant disregard of the indigenous people of Papua which is clear in its ongoing human rights violations and continued attempts to manipulate the population of Papua through forced migration.

We call for an end to the exploitation of indigenous land in Tannah Papua and demand greater education and employment opportunities for the native population.
