    A Free West Papua Movement!

    Rize of the Morning Star (ROTMS) is an entity with passion, determination and focus, creatively raising global awareness for the Free West Papua Movement, with Self Determination through non-violence a core focus.

     

    Using Music as a key unifier and amplifier of energy and action, ROTMS have successfully organised some of the largest scale International Free West Papua solidarity actions to date.

     

    ROTMS engages in a broad cross section of activity including Mobilising, Training & Resourcing Community, Fund Raising, Concerts, Partnerships, Publicity, Promotion & Educating predominantly through the Arts & Entertainment industry.

     

    Activating a collective of musicians, filmmakers, journalists, publicists, activists, companies, brands and the wider community, ROTMS inspires and empowers individuals and communities to uphold equal rights for human beings, hold persecutors accountable & play an integral role in the global momentum & movement toward A West Papua free from brutal Indonesian occupation, A West Papua that is truly Free... Papua Merdeka!

     

    Let the light shine into the darkness, for the dawning of a new day comes, with the Rize Of The Morning Star!

    ABOUT WEST PAPUA

    West Papua is a country in waiting, located approx 150 Kilometers north of Australia it is the western half of the island of New Guinea where the Indigenous peoples have been living for more than 50,000 years.

    For over 50 years the West Papuan people have been under brutally oppressed under an Indonesian militant occupation, and subject to a Slow Genocide.
     

    Before the Indonesian invasion of 1963 the West Papuan people were 98% of the population, today they are only 48%, a reported 500,000 West Papuans have been killed or disappeared. Their minerals, rain forests and resources have been ruthlessly exploited, the main beneficiaries being
    Indonesia, USA and Australia.
     

    The Act Of "Free" Choice: Was the 1969 U.N monitored referendum which was
    set in place to allow West Papuans to decide if they wanted to become an independent nation state. 1024 West Papuans were chosen and forced to vote under duress in favour of remaining under Indonesian rule. West Papuans refer to the referendum as the 'Act Of No Choice' and are calling for a renewed referendum where all adult Papuans are allowed to vote.
