On 1st December 1961, the West Papuan flag was officially raised by the newly formed West Papuan army. A national government and police force were also formed. Just 18 months after the West Papuan flag was raised as the Dutch began preparing West Papua for full independence, the Indonesian military invaded West Papua on May 1963 with full support from the USA.
In 1968, Indonesia forced a fraudulent vote under gunpoint with the “Act of Free Choice.” Support a new referendum, support a Free West Papua. Indonesia is not Melanesia.
