On July 6 each year people gather to raise the Morning Star flag and to remember those who died in West Papua’s Biak Massacre in 1998.
Indonesian troops murdered more than 150 West Papuan villagers on Biak Island, 1200km north of Australia.
These pictures are from Sydney yesterday where the flag was raised outside the Indonesian Consulate, Maroubra, and flowers were handed out by Australia West Papua Association members to represent the victims whose lives were brutally cut short.
