content/ shefa-home-west-papuans-ata vimarata The President of the new Shefa Provincial Government, Chief Atavimarata, and his councillors yesterday, affirmed their support towards West Papuan political freedom, not only by words of mouth. The Shefa Provincial Government committed itself in a signed agreement and publicly made the symbolic announcement that Shefa Province is a home to the West Papuans. In a prepared statement, Atavimarata said in his speech that the issue has been dragging on for many years but the support of the Shefa Province�s to the West Papuan course is clear and that West Papua must become an independent state one day to come- even if it takes time. He made the remarks during a briefing by West Papua campaigner, Benny Wenda, who called on the Shefa Province to support the West Papuan struggle for self-political freedom. The signed statement which the Shefa President presented to Benny Wenda contained five main points. It stated that Shefa Province recognizes the struggle of the West Papuan Melanesians and therefore reaffirm its support; to see West Papuan political freedom is achieved, understands that the Vanuatu government also addresses the issue of the West Papuan struggle, that as of today (Thursday) Shefa Province along with the councillors and customary chiefs will begin to embark with support for the West Papuan course, will come up later with another suitable agreement that will better facilitate the interest of the two countries and the people, for the two groups of Melanesians (Vanuatu and West Papua)to better recognized one another as Melanesian brothers. The Shefa Provincial President presented a custom mat and the signed document of support to Benny Wenda and sealed their agreement with a kava ceremony.
