Dedicated to the memory of Arnold Ap, West Papuan
musician, writer, and curator of the anthropological
museum at Cenderawasih University, Jayapura. Ap was
a cultural leader and an inspiration to his people. He was
tortured and killed in July 1984.
This is also dedicated to the many political detainees
currently serving time in Indonesian prisons, and the
indigenous population of West Papua who have endured
thirty years of Indonesian colonisation. We hope that,
beginning with the Australian government, the
international community will face the truth and work to
correct the great injustice that has been committed.
Produced by the
Australia West Papua Association, Sydney
