Until the gold is gone

Paul Brecht, Evans Head

Six activists convicted by an Indonesian court for organising a protest demanding independence for the province of West Papua.

That’s a bit bloody rich coming from the Indonesian regime who invaded West Papua and have been persecuting the native people for years.

I say ‘get out of West Papua, Indonesia – now!’

Of course they won’t, because it’s sanctioned by Canberra, and there’s still gold in those hills. Oh yeah.

    Allan, Pelverata, Tas. Indonesia shouldn’t be in West Papua. Well past their time occupying that land. Yet of course our Federal Lib/ Nat govt won’t want to upset the Indonesian’s. Trade with Indonesia might be required to ramp up with the way China is currently acting. Caution…. the BULLY countries are in the room!
