West Papua Advocacy Team & ETAN Suspend "West Papua Report."

The West Papua Advocacy Team and ETAN Suspend the "West Papua Report."
The West Papua Advocacy Team and ETAN are suspending publication West Papua Report.Publication of the more than ten-year old report will remain on hold while we gauge interest and support and recruit additional volunteers to help with its production. In a revived West Papua Report, we want to strengthen its analytical focus, continue to highlight key events affecting West Papua, and maintain its attention to the impacts of U.S. policy.

Since the inception of the report, the international West Papua solidarity community has developed a number of excellent sites, including West Papua Media Alerts and the monthly news summary produced by the Australia West Papua Association (Sydney). The West Papua News email listserv continues to forward reports of these and other organizations, as well as other english-language news. For information on this list and how to subscribe to go here:http://etan.org/resource/elecRsrc.htm#West_Papua_News or send an email to etan@etan.org with "subscribe west papua" in the subject line. You can also follow the listserv on Twitter@westpapuanews.

In conjunction with the East Timor and Indonesia Action Network (ETAN), WPAT will continue to work in support of West Papuan human rights, including the right of self-determination, through advocacy and public education and by publishing periodic media releases, action alerts, and background reports. Back issues of the Report remain available here.

If you have any questions, make suggestions or offers of support, write us at wpat@etan.org.
