For most of the last half century, the West Papuan people have put
up a brave guerrilla resistance, fighting the Indonesian military state
with bows and arrows, unseen by the rest of the world.

In recent years
however, it has all changed as urban social movements reclaim space in
the cities and communication technology make even the deepest jungle a
bit less isolated. Despite brutal repression and racism, 2011 has seen
impressive resistance in West Papua. A four-month strike at the world's
biggest copper and gold mine has inspired workers all over Indonesia to
take action against their own exploitation. A mega-project to clear
millions of hectares of forest for industrial agriculture and biofuels
stagnates as people refuse to be bullied out of their land.
Representatives of every village in West Papua converge on the capital
to discuss their future, and seeing no other way forward, declare
independence amidst the army's bullets.

Come and watch some films and hear about the changing, powerful
resistance of the West Papuan people.
