CONTENTS

This edition's PERSPECTIVE provides a detailed overview of the Tolikara incident in which security force fired on a demonstration by Christian Papuans killed one and injured 11 others. The demonstrators then attacked a Muslim community, burning kiosks and a mosque. Years of government "transmigration" policies and neglect of Papuans have left West Papua a powder keg. Despite this, the local Tolikara community has come together to resolve tensions.

In UPDATE: Pressure is growing on the Indonesian government to credibly investigate the December 14, 2014 murder of four West Papuans by security forces. The National Human Rights Commission (Komnas Ham) "Ad Hoc Investigation" has made little headway and competing security force investigations appear aimed at pressuring victim families to abandon efforts to force accountability. Negotiations between the Indonesian government and mining giant Freeport McMoRan have led to a six month extension of its license. Talks to renew its contract have not yet gotten underway and are essential if Freeport operations are to continue past 2021.There are growing calls to reduce security forces in West Papua.

In CHRONICLE: Demographic trends in West Papua which have seen the reduction of Papuans to the status of a minority in their own land. Renowned human rights campaigner Carmel Budiardjo calls into question the United Kingdom's cooperation with the Indonesian government. A West Papua "embassy" was temporarily set up in Darwin. The Pacific Islands Forum was urged to put West Papua on its agenda.

Free West Papua Campaign Newsletter July 2015

This month we are proud and delighted to announce that West Papua has made history by being awarded observer status to the Melanesian Spearhead Group. This ground breaking news comes after months of hard work by the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP), backed up by thousands of demonstrators across Papua. Subject to hundreds of arrests and in some cases torture, they have been supported by a mass movement across Melanesia and the rest of the world.

Thank you to all our supporters who helped to make this happen. Please continue to keep this momentum going and spread the word about what is happening in West Papua. Visit our website to find out how you can take action to help West Papua on its road to freedom.
