The crowd had formed at the police station calling for justice after a speeding truck had struck and killed two locals. The driver of the truck had fled into the police station.

Two of the injured have been identified as Anthon Edowai (32) who was shot in the thigh and Julius Anouw (27) who was shot in the chest. The third has not yet been identified but was shot in the belly allowing the guts to spill out.
The indiscriminate shooting of West Papuans by the Indonesian police gives yet another example of how Indonesia is not fit to rule West Papua. Human rights abuses continue on a weekly basis because Indonesia is illegally occupying West Papua using brutal force. The Free West Papua Campaign wants to end all such abuses by calling on the world to recognise Indonesia’s illegitimate claim and to grant West Papua independence to run their own country.
