              West Papua is a secret story. Unfolding on the western half of the island of New Guinea, hidden from the world, in a place occupied by the Indonesian military since 1963, is a remarkable nonviolent struggle for national liberation. In Merdeka and the Morning Star, Jason MacLeod, ...a movement insider and academic, reveals the trajectory and dynamics of civil resistance in West Papua, where there have been protests, boycotts, strikes and other nonviolent actions against repressive rule. This is the first in-depth account of civilian-led insurrection in West Papua, a movement that has transitioned from guerrilla war to relentless nonviolent resistance. MacLeod analyses several case studies including: tax resistance that pre-dates Gandhi's salt march by two decades; strikes by mine workers at the world's largest gold and copper mine; daring attempts to escape Indonesian rule by dugout canoe; mass occupations of parliament, and, the collection of a petition in support of joining the Melanesian Spearhead Group, where signing is to risk being shot dead. Merdeka and the Morning Star is a compelling book for all those interested in Indonesia, the Pacific, self-determination struggles and non-violent ways out of occupation.

              Animating Freedom: Accompanying Indigenous struggles for self-determination (EPUB ebook)

              By MacLeod, Jason

              I first visited West Papua in 1991. That trip changed my life. When I returned to Australia, however, I realised most people had never heard of this nation-in-waiting, even though it was only a swim and a walk away from our most northern border. I suspect this ignorance extends t...o a large portion of Friends. That is by design. Our imagination has been stopped, denied entry, at the border between Papua New Guinea and West Papua. Ensuring West Papua remains a secret story has been an intentional act by successive foreign governments-including the Australian Government-and their accomplices in the media. This intentional act functions to keep the island divided into two, just as it appears in colonial maps. The result is that the western half of Papua is rendered invisible. I remain shocked by the Australian people's collective ignorance.
