Former WP Refugee and Assylum Seeker Benny Wenda Thanks Oxford City Council

ULMWP chairman Hon. Mr. Benny Wenda have received the prestigious Freedom of the City award. He dedicated this award to the people of West Papua. First time in our history.

It was an Honor.

Today I had the honour of receiving Freedom of the City of Oxford as a messenger of the West Papuan people. This award does not belong only to me, but it belongs to all the people of West Papua, as an acknowledgement of all West Papuans who continue to tirelessly struggle for self-determination and independence.

I would like to thank Oxford City Council, all international supporters but above all, all the people of West Papua who continue to unite and stride forward together for the liberation of West Papua.

There are so many others who have made contributions, big and small. Each person can make history, and no matter what background you come from, you can help the struggle to free the people of West Papua. Every one of you is making history, and your assistance and solidarity is kept in the hearts of the people of West Papua.

With my spirit I thank you all so much. Papua Merdeka
