The Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre today raised the morning star flag of West Papua to show their solidarity.
Coordinator Shamima Ali says this ceremony is done every Wednesday to remember the people of West Papua, particularly women and girls who are suffering twofold due to the increased militarization of the province by the cruel Indonesian government.
Ali says this is a perfect time since all the Pacific leaders are in Fiji for the Pacific Islands Forum but the Fijian government remains silent on this issue.
Ali adds that with Fiji as the Chair of the forum, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama should have negotiated for West Papua to be on the agenda list.
