Rare photo of what I like to call West Papua’s Malcolm X & Martin Luther ? – Papua Militant International Serogo Tabuni and his uncle ULMWP Chairman and Free West Papua Campaign founder Benny Wenda at a protest in the United Kingdom over the arrest of Buchtar Tabuni and Sebby Sambom in 2009.

“Each of us has a little bit of Martin and a little bit of Malcolm in us. Malcolm represents that Blackness in us, that sense that we don’t want white people messing with us. Malcolm represents that fire, that fight that refuses to let anybody define who we are. King represents our desire to get along with everybody, including whites. Our desire to want to create a society for all people, defined by non-violence, love and care for all people in the society,”
- Historian James Cone.
