Pacific rugby players throw weight behind Free West Papua campaign


Updated 19 February 2015, 10:59 AEDT

Pacific Island rugby players are publicly voicing their support for the Free West Papua campaign.

The Fiji Rugby Union posted a photo of four Pacific players holding the flag of West Papua on social media, in a show of support for the Indonesian province's independence movement.
Flying Fijians players Akapusi Qera and Jim Nagusa both play for the French provincial team Montpellier, and are seen holding the flag with teammates Naama Leleimalefa and Alex Tulou.
Originally from American Samoa, Alex Tulou says the presence of the campaign on social media is what brought the issue to his team's attention.
Presenter: Richard Ewart
Speaker: Alex Tulou, Montpellier Rugby Union

I want to say thank to the rugby players of Pacific. Your support means a lot to the people of West Papua. I hope the rugby players across the pacific can give their support for freedom for their brothers and sisters in West Papua.
