The Papuan Citizenship issue has been brought before the Australian Federal Court in Sydney, Australia. This issue has also been published in the media organizations such as ABC Radio, ,The Wire [save audio here], Radio New Zealand International [read more], Post Courier, The National among others.

We appeal every Papuan in PNG or abroad to support Jonathan Baure (see left picture with NRL player, Daniel Wagon and kids) and his campaign team in anyway possible to conduct educational awareness around the southern half of PNG, that includes Western, Gulf, Central, National Capital District, Milne Bay, Oro and Southern Highlands Provinces - where 80% of our rural population lack such information.

We are also appealing to every Papuans to support this worthy cause in order to effect the Australian Federal Government's review of the 55-year-old Nationality and Citizenship Act thereby accommodating Papuans' rights.

In this website, you will find important features about Australian Papuan Community, Nationality and Citizenship Act, and the impact of our cause towards the Australian Federal Government and many more.
