  Benny Wenda - West Papuan tribal leader

Benny Wenda is a West Papuan independence leader and chairman of the Koteka Tribal Assembly. His village was destroyed when he was a child and many of my family were killed.  The clash between separatist movement and military made worse the village. Later, he began to campaign peacefully to separatist action. He stayed in Britain until now. He said life is hard for Papuan, and provoke them for the freedoms that he believe better for Papuan.
