ABC: Cultural ceremony marks pinnacle of Freedom Flotilla’s ‘epic’ West Papua mission
Activists on a flotilla which left Australia last month have completed their mission to present water and ashes to leaders of Indonesia’s disputed Papua region.
The so-called Freedom Flotilla crossed Indonesia’s marine border last night after a 5,000-kilometre journey which aimed to highlight the need for peace and stability in the area.
A ceremony has now taken place in waters off the south coast of Papua, with the exact location kept secret to lessen the risk of the protesters being intercepted by authorities.
