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 and play a gig.
