Today the Green Party hosted a protest outside the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Wellington. MP Catherine Delahunty led representatives from the Green Party and Mana Party in delivering a letter to the Embassy calling for an urgent peace process between the Indonesian Government and a movement towards self-determination for the people of West Papua.

The protesters gave an impassioned call for an end to colonial domination, comparing the current political situation to Apartheid South Africa and and the occupied Palestinian territories.

Catherine Delahunty said that she would be raising the West Papua issue in Parliament and urged other groups across New Zealand to lend their support. She called West Papua an 'inconvenient truth' for Indonesia and for the New Zealand government.

Gordon Campbell: On China And Hong Kong (And Boris)

In the circumstances, yesterday’s move by Lam to scrap – rather than merely suspend – the hated extradition law that first triggered the protests three months ago, seems like the least she can do. It may also be too little, too late. More>>

The DOC-led draft Biodiversity Strategy seeks a “shared vision.” But there are more values and views around wildlife than there are species. How can we hope to agree on the shape of Aotearoa’s future biota? More>>
