About the Australia West Papua Association ( Sydney) 
The Australia West Papua Association (AWPA) is a human rights organisation focusing on the territory of West Papua.  AWPA’s role is to  lobby both  the Australian government and the International Community to raise concerns about the human rights situation in West Papua. The West Papuan people face great challenges including  ongoing human rights abuses, the exploitation of their natural resources with little or no benefit to themselves, the danger of becoming a minority in their own land as the result of migrants arriving daily and a  HIV/AIDS epidemic. AWPA raises awareness in the international community about the historical wrongs and history of West Papua and AWPA (Sydney)

AWPA welcomes articles for the newsletter on any issue in relation to West Papua. The reports in the newsletter are from the various email conferences on West Papua.  AWPA appreciates any donations of support to help in its campaign work. Past newsletters can be found at
