Stories allow us to know each other. They build empathy by simultaneously teaching and engaging. They lay the foundation for action.
Pedalling for Papua is Canada’s contribution to the global effort to broadcast the story of West Papua. After 50 years of human rights and environmental abuses hidden behind a media blackout, West Papua is being slowly and relentlessly exposed to the world. A long oppressed indigenous population committed to non-violent reform and a growing base of international allies committed to a partnership for peace fuel this movement.
West Papua is home to Asia’s largest jungle, the world’s greatest underwater biodiversity, and some of our planet’s oldest cultures. It is a rare and threatened treasure which Pedalling for Papua is dedicated to uncovering for the world to see. We ask that you join us in telling this great story.
