Marking West Papua Day of Peace 2011
3 and 4 February, Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand

On Thursday, 3 February, at 6pm
St Andrew's on The Terrace, 30 The Terrace, Wellington

You are invited to learn more about West Papua and share in the hope for peace there.

West Papuans are our Pacific neighbours. Torture and human rights abuses are common there. New Zealand needs to be part of supporting peace and human rights in West Papua.

We will be screening a short documentary about West Papua's political history, providing information about the human rights situation today and what you can do about it - with speakers from St Andrews, Caritas and Peace Movement Aotearoa.

There will be a time of reflection and we will be lighting candles of hope for peace in West Papua.

Afterwards you are welcome to stay for light refreshments and discussion.

This event is in support of the Papua Day of Peace (5 February) which is marked in West Papua and around the world to promote the Papuan 'Land of Peace' initiative.

  • Friday, 4 February, from 12 noon to 1.30pm: there will be a lunchtime information stall outside St Andrew's on The Terrace to also mark the Day of Peace.

    For more information, please contact Ellen email.
