Influx of foreign politicans sign up to International Parliamentarians for West Papua in light of recent increase in violence from Indonesian authorities

The deteriorating situation in West Papua where Indonesian forces have killed and imprisoned hundreds of people in recent days for peacefully calling for independence, has led to an influx of international politicians signing up the International Parliamentarians for West Papua. Those now signed up to the declaration recognising the right of the people of West Papua to self-determination include the widely respected US democrat senator Ted Kennedy.
The steadily growing list of politicians at www.ipwp.org is a reminder that the actions of the Indonesian authorities are not going unnoticed in the outside world, and the IPWP is growing in support and strength towards bringing long lasting change for West Papua
