Benny Wenda is currently in Australia ahead of the launch of a Free West Papua Campaign office in Perth this Sunday 27th April.

The office will work closely to help co-ordinate activity in Australia with active groups in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Darwin and Brisbane, to raise awareness and lobby Australian politicians to support the right of self-determination for West Papua.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Benny Wenda expressed his gratitude to the Australian Government for allowing the office to open in line with shared values of democracy. The opening of the Australian office follows on from the opening of three other offices last year in Oxford,UK and The Hague, Netherlands and Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
