IPMSDL’s  Message to the 62nd Anniversary of West Papua’s Flag Raising Day


International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self-Determination and Liberation

Peaceful and Solidarity Greetings,

The International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self-Determination and Liberation extends heartfelt and resolute greetings to the Peoples of West Papua as you commemorate the 62nd anniversary of the raising of the Morning Star flag.

This symbolic declaration of independence is a significant milestone in the West Papuan struggle for self-determination. Reflecting on this pivotal event is crucial, emphasizing the profound ability of a community of peoples to determine their path—an integral aspect of the right to self-determination.

Throughout the year, Indonesian military forces have relentlessly perpetrated a range of attacks against West Papua, spanning from abductions and torture to the tragic killing of children. These acts, orchestrated by oppressive forces, aim to suppress West Papua’s liberation. However, the steadfast determination of the West Papuan movement persists, unwavering in its commitment to achieve freedom. Whether through armed or unarmed means, the just resistance of the West Papuan people endures.

As part of IPMSDL, we pledge to champion your cause and let-know to the world know of the ongoing struggle and progress in West Papua. On this day, we urge all our members, allies, friends, and advocates of freedom to stand in solidarity with West Papua. From Palestine to West Papua, to Kurdistan and the Philippines – a triumph for liberation and self-determination is on the horizon.

Papua! Merdeka!
