What's in this wiki?


The interactive, illustrated story Crying Freedom: Heroic Tales from the unstoppable nation of West Papua (previously entitled Vanishing Tribes) can be purchased, or sometimes downloaded for free, through the eBook Versions page. (The project is a 100% non-profit venture, and all proceeds go to funding translations or otherwise supporting the cause of self-determination for West Papuans.)

This site's primary purpose is as a factual basis for the fictional story in Crying Freedom. It is a 'living bibliography' of web links and references verifying the events that inspired Vivi's story in 2012, and substantiating the increasingly urgent call to stop military impunity and injustice that continues to this day. Our intent is to inform and connect readers who may choose to make a difference in the race against time to save West Papua.

To help West Papuans regain their freedom, see Take Action Now! From there, you can get involved as a fellow activist, sign petitions or donate to any of a list of charities worldwide helping West Papuan people. Please lend your talents, your situation, your money, your influence (e.g., social media) or simply some time online to help us stop this global tragedy at a most crucial time.

Believe us, the people of West Papua are grateful for whatever you may do to support their cause.

Peace, and Merdeka! (Freedom!)
