A powerful photo of a young girl at a West Papua National Committee (KNPB) independence rally in Wamena, West Papua on August 2, 2011. The young generation in West Papua has the flames of justice running through their veins. The struggle will continue until West Papua is free.

NB (2014 edit ): This photo has been shared massively and sold without credit to the original content creator, denying him funding to return to Papua and assist Papuan photojournalists. Please credit all content of West Papua subjects and origin, even for campaigning purposes. Each acknowledgement of intellectual property assists the support and development of indigenous media capacity. Each image shared or used for donations or marketing without acknowledgement, is the same plunder of indigenous West Papuan imagery as Indonesia does with Papuan culture, art, song, gold, oil, timber and blood. Please don’t be a plunderer. Acknowledge the provenance.
