THE PRICE OF PROTEST IN  WEST PAPUA


GEMIMA HARVEY *


West  Papua  is  a  region  fraught  with  tension,  where  the Indigenous population is intimidated and repressed to prevent the voicing of political views.
This paper examines the price of protest in West Papua, where the struggle  for  self-determination  has  been  violently  stifled  by  Indonesian security  forces  for  five  decades. It aims  to  expose  endemic  injustice  and abuse, and also to act as a microphone for those who, through non-violent means,  risk  life  and  liberty  to  express  their  hopes  and  dreams  for  a  free West Papua.
