PIANGO Welcomes World Churches Call For West Papua Solidarity Visit

The Pacific Islands Association of NGOs (PIANGO) executive director, Emele Duituturaga, has welcomed a call made by the World Council of Churches (WCC) for a solidarity visit to West Papua by an international ecumenical delegation, reports PINA. Duituturaga said the call made by the WCC for a solidarity visit to be organised as soon as possible: “WCC has called on its member churches to pray and act in support of the witness of the churches - especially the Evangelical Christian Church in Tanah Papua, and through the Communion of Churches in Indonesia (PGI), the Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC), and the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) - for justice and peace in the region,” and also “The churches can no longer stand by and watch the genocide of indigenous Papuans. They have spoken about the need to protect human dignity. As a regional platform, PIANGO stands with WCC’s representative in the region, the Pacific Conference of Churches as they pray and act in support of Papuans suffering under the brutal rule of Indonesia.” PIANGO is also collaborating with other regional NGOs to remind the MSG of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua’s application for full membership.
