To the Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres,
As concerned citizens from around the world, we call on you to urgently address the human rights situation in West Papua and to review the UN's involvement in the administration of West Papua that led to its unlawful annexation by Indonesia ‐ and the human rights abuse that continues today.
We call upon you to:
I. Appoint a Special Representative to investigate the human rights situation in West Papua;
II. Put West Papua back on the Decolonisation Committee agenda and ensure their right to self‐determination ‐- denied to them in 1969 -‐ is respected by holding an Internationally Supervised Vote (in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolutions 1514 and 1541 (XV)).
