Wiwince Pigome

Active Member, Translator and Spokeswoman, Free West Papua Campaign
Wiwince Pigome is an active member, translator and spokeswoman for West Papuan human rights issues for the Free West Papua Campaign. Currently based in Western Australia, Wiwince’s activism in this area is closely connected to her first-hand experience of human rights abuses in her home country. Facing significant risk to her personal safety, left her homelanbd now Wiwince works in Australia to raise awareness about past and current human rights abuses in West Papua through a range of media, including public talks in schools and universities, door-knocking, and translating reports of current incidents of abuse for distribution to Australian politicians. Building on her work in Australia, the program offers important opportunities for Wiwince to strengthen transnational engagement around the West Papuan cause.
