Auckland Forum on West Papua


From the Global Peace and Justice Auckland (GPJA) newsletter

This Monday we have a special forum organised with the Indonesia Human Rights Committee (IHRC) and Pax Christi. "Can West Papua become a Land of Peace?" How can we work together to protect the people, their forests and their resources? Hear Dr Neles Tebay, lecturer at the Fajar Timur School of Philosophy and Theology in Abepura, West Papua.

Catholic Priest Neles Tebay is an outspoken critic of militarisation and a passionate advocate for peace, human rights and the preservation of West Papua’s ancient forests. All welcome.

Trades Hall Supper Room, 147 Great North Rd, Grey Lynn. Monday, 23 March 2009, 7.30 pm
