Grants in 2013, 2014, and 2015 from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported an educational program that trains citizen journalists to collect independently verifiable news and to subvert the media ban imposed by the Indonesian government. The program also equipped trainees with cameras and Blackphones. West Papua Media regularly publishes stories filed by these citizen journalists.

West Papua Media is deeply grateful for the support of Silent Circle and Blackphone, for the massively discounted supply of the world’s first fully secure mobile phone handset, and associated secure telephony and safe journalism applications on existing Android handsets. We are rolling these out amongst a wide variety of journalists and human rights defenders across Papua so they may be able to conduct their communications in private and in safety. Public donations via westpapuamedia.info/donate will help us roll these out faster.
