Radio Australia: Footage of violent Papuan crackdown emerges

Updated October 27, 2011 16:57:44

More footage has emerged of a shooting in the Indonesian province of West Papua last week… that human rights campaigners say left at least seven people dead and dozens more injured.

Soldiers reportedly opened fire after thousands of people declared independence from Indonesia at the Papuan People’s Congress.

Papuans in exile say that despite the crackdown their campaign for independence is growing – and they want the Indonesian Government to start negotiating.

Presenter: Liz Hobday
Speaker: Professor Peter King, University of Sydney
