ASC shows solidarity to Papuan Partner
The Assembly Standing Committee met in Sydney over the weekend and received several reports from our partner Church in Papua, the Evangelical Christian Church in the Land of Papua. The ASC passed a resolution calling on the Australian Government to seek a commitment from the Indonesian Government for them to act responsibly and with restraint in Papua and to offer more opportunities for dialogue with Papuan religious and community leaders concerning the present situation. The President has also sent the Foreign Minister a copy of a report written by UIM Executive Secretary, Rev. John Barr who returned from the province recently.
