West Papua's fight for freedom,

Een interview met Benny en Maria Wenda

More than 40 years after Indonesia invaded and occupied West Papua , the people there are still fighting for independence. At least 100,000 West Papuans have been killed by the Indonesian imperialists.

Britain is aiding the slaughter, selling Hawk attack aircraft which are used to bomb villages and water cannon and armoured cars that are used to crush peaceful protests. British companies like BP and Rio Tinto are ripping out West Papua's natural resources. Through the franchises and taxes they pay to Indonesia, these companies are helping finance the Indonesian army of occupation. On his weekly TV programme, Talking With Tatchell, human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell interviews Benny Wenda, Chair, Koteka Tribal Assembly, West Papua, Maria Wenda, West Papuan independence and women's rights activist, and Richard Samuelson, Co-director of the Free West Papua Campaign (UK). by Peter Tatchell
