Free political prisoners in West Papua - rally at Indonesian consulate, Melbourne, 8 April 2011

The Morning Star flew in front of the Indonesian Consulate in Melbourne this morning as members of the West Papua community and supporters gathered to demand the release of political prisoners and an end to torture and repression.

The particular focus of the action was the case of Filep Karma - see this Amnesty USA video on YouTube - sentenced in May 2005 to 15 years imprisonment for treason.
