Re: Newfrom upir new neighbourhood: West Papua
- Greetings, all!
As people here may know, the issue of indigenous rights is near and
dear to my heart, so I am planning to lend my support to this
endeavor and I would urge others to do the same. I strongly feel
that support for the rights of indigenous peoples in the South
Pacific, as well as elsewhere, should be a part of the foreign
policy of the GLK.
Pila huk!/Thanks everyone!
