Papuan students across Indonesia protest the murder of half a million of their people

West Papuan protestors in Jakarta were arrested and beaten by police on Friday following Pupuan Independence Day protests in response the ongoing massacre of West Papuans to make way for Indonesian coastal settlements, palm oil plantations and vast forest clearing. West Papua is home to the world’s largest gold mine and significant oil reserves, owned by American interests. Over half a million people have been killed by the Indonesian Government since it took control of the region in 1969.
