Vierdaagse Nijmegen: Dag 1
President in Exile Ben Kaisiëpo Ms. was present at the early morning startoff of the 2014 International FourDaysMarch to wish the participants best of Succes and gave an interview to Dutch Media. Questions were answered on the unlawfull banning of the Morningstar Flag at DutchVeteransDay last June and on the international recognition of West Papua right to self determination. Quote: “The Netherlands with the 1947 Caberra Agreement has an international obligation to immediately restore West Papua’s decolonization process. This inorder to stop the genocide among Papuans perpetrated by the barbaric Indonesian regime”.
