West Papua - Freedom in sight?
西パプアの自由と解放

West Papua stands on a knife-edge between freedom and disaster. In this issue, we hear the voices of people living under Indonesian occupation and fighting to be free. We learn about the unifying power of Melanesian music, expose the extractive companies that are profiting from Papuan repression, and hear Indigenous leaders lay out their visions of the new country they want to build.


西パプアは、自由と惨事のはざまに置かれ、予断を許さない状況にある。今月は、インドネシアの占領下に暮らし、解放を目指して闘う人々の声をお届けする。メラネシア音楽の団結力について学び、パプア人の弾圧によって利益を得る採掘企業について暴き、自分たちが望む新しい国の構想を練る先住民リーダーたちの話を聞く。
