Nigerian consular officer Abdulrahman Ibrahim was working in Jakarta, Indonesia, when he was detained and assaulted by numerous immigration officials in broad daylight. He was seen in the video saying, “I can’t breathe,” three times. This incident highlights Indonesia’s oppressive treatment of the Black population for over five decades in West Papua, located north of Australia.
Timi Frank, ambassador to East Africa and the Middle East for the United Liberation Movement for West Papua, joins Marc Lamont Hill on ‘Black News Tonight’ to discuss the fight for independence.
Respect and thank you very much mr. Frank for supporting West Papua in their struggle for liberation from Indonesian colonial rule.
