West Papua Internet shut down

Amnesty International is reporting that – “The Indonesian Government has imposed a total internet access shut down for mobile cellular networks in the Papua and West Papua provinces until further notice. This is an appalling attack on people’s right to freedom of expression.”

As a church we and the Baptist churches of NZ have been watching and concerned about the liberties of the people of West Papua under Indonesian rule. This latest shut down of the internet limits news of the people of West Papua and undermines their freedoms of communication and speech.
