West Papuan flag raising outside Indonesian Embassy in Australia

Radio New Zealand International Posted at 02:08 on 30 November, 2007 UTC
Members and supporters of the West Papuan community in Australia have raised
the Morning Star Flag in a rally outside the Indonesian embassy in Canberra
this morning.

The rally was planned to draw attention to the human rights situation in Indonesia¹s Papua region, a day before West Papuan National Flag Day on December 1.
The Morning Star flag represented the territory of West Papua from December
1961 until October 1962 when the territory came under the administration of
the United Nations Temporary Executive Authority.
Raising the Morning Star is officially considered a criminal act in Indonesia, with at least one Papuan serving a 15 year prison sentence for hoisting the flag.
