Prayers for Peacemakers, 9 November 2016
Give thanks for the witness of West Papuans who have
resisted the genocidal policies of the Indonesian government and the witness of
Christian Peacemaker Teams – Oceania.
Even though Indonesian President Joko Widodo canceled his visit to
Australia, after massive outrage in the country against Indonesia’s human
rights violations in West Papua, CPT-Oceania still felt moved to vigil on the
lawn in the front of Parliament House.
They read the names of West Papuans who had been arrested, jailed,
killed and disappeared. They named West
Papuans who inspire the CPTers to stand with them. They acknowledged their
encircling presence, like a cloud of witnesses. “Berapa lama mereka hadir?
Untuk selamanya. Untuk selamanya. Untuk selamanya. For how long are they with
us? For always. For always. For always…”
