West Papua: another East Timor?

Prominent nun and human rights advocate Susan Connelly of the Sisters of St Joseph has just returned from a fact finding mission to West Papua. She is one of the authors of  We Are in Danger, a report on the situation there.
It refers to allegations of torture and death at the hands of Indonesian police and military; and even an attempted “slow motion genocide” of the indigenous population of West Papua, using mass migration from Java.
She told Andrew West her investigation in West Papua had a familiar and frightening echo.
