Resources for Events
If you are organising an event raising publicity for
SSP, we can provide the
following resources. To get hold of them, please contact us:
- Videos - in addition to those listed on the Merchandise page, we will also supply other films
about the West Papuan tribal resistance and a fascinating series of videos
following the story of highlanders in Papua New Guinea, featuring original
footage of their first meetings with white people in the 1930's
through to "Black Harvest" when in the 80's coffee growing
erupts into tribal war!
- Exhibitions - we have available a framed photo
exhibition of the Bougainville struggle and we can supply images and text
for an exhibition detailing the West Papuan struggle.
- Speakers - someone from SSP will often be willing to
travel to speak, and we can put you in contact with Benny Wenda who is always willing to speak to
groups about the West Papuan struggle.
- Music - in addition to the CD available on the
Merchandise page we have CDs of music from
New Guinea and the Philippines which can be played at events. We can also
put you in contact with West Papuan musicians who may be willing to come
