A pamphlet distributed by the Free West Papua Party said, “For the last fifty years the people of West Papua have suffered under an Indonesian military occupation which has stolen their resources, their freedom and their dignity… Over 500,000 civilians have been killed.”
Mr Craig was joined by West Papuan Patianus Kogoya, who now lives in Bundaberg, and Hazelbrook’s Roger Bowen.
Together the three men erected a mobile flag pole on the back of a ute parked outside the council offices.
