Venue: Scribblers Hut

The independence leader was arrested, tortured and threatened with death for protesting against the Indonesian occupation of his homeland. Wenda now lives in exile. He argues that over half a million Papuans have been murdered by the Indonesian forces in the 50 years of occupation, constituting genocide. He tells his story (also detailed in the film The Road Home) with his advocate, the international lawyer Jennifer Robinson and the journalist George Monbiot.
