    Visit our Make a Donation page to make a contribution to a variety of organizations that support West Papuan people and their continuing struggle for freedom.


    Connect with activist organizations in your area (do a search for West Papua and your country name) or global organizations (see the Donations page for ideas). Join in protests. Write letters to your elected representatives.

    Connect with other people of faith in your church, mosque or other gathering place who would be willing to pray for West Papua, and perhaps take some coordinated action.

    Add Comments to articles online, write an article yourself, or send a letter to the editor of a mainstream newspaper.

    Can you, or someone you know, translate Crying Freedom into your native language? (Our previous publication was translated into German and Korean.) It’s a huge task and a volunteer labour of love, but if you’re interested, please send us an email.

    Sign a petition at GoPetition.com – although you’ll see that these haven’t had much impact, especially in relation to the 2018 petition to the UN signed by almost two million brave West Papuans as reported by Reuters and in The Guardian.

    Tell the world that the fate of West Papua affects us all, and that peaceful supporters like you are everywhere – by downloading, then posting, wearing or otherwise displaying the Morning Star flag.
