On the island states in the South Pacific, communities are pushing for independence while battling sea levels that are rising due to climate change. One of the key struggles in the region is the fight for freedom in West Papua, which comprises the western half of New Guinea. If you’re interested in supporting organizations that are working for freedom in West Papua, we recommend checking out the Celebrate Island Resilience page on the website of our sister organization, the Cultures of Resistance Network. You can find information there about how you can get involved by donating resources, volunteering your skills as a translator, or joining a demonstration!
