Independent West Papua
Melbourne Community Benefit 8pm,
Saturday July 5th The Corner Hotel. $10/15

In solidarity with a resurgence in demonstrations across West Papua for independence from Indonesia, the West Papuan Melbourne community is organising a massive weekend of celebration and protest.

Members of the 43 Papuan refugees who fled to Australia by boat in 2006 will perform traditional and reggae and hip-hop inspired song and dance. Supported by Melbourne's most radical hip-hop, reggae and dub crews, Agency Dub Collective, Culture Connect, Chantdown Sound, Pataphysics, B12 Shot and A Mapmouth Exploder, the Corner will present a night of true Melanasian and Melbournian revolutionary culture. All proceeds to Australia West Papua Association.
