Raki Ap on Colonial Racism, Climate Crisis and Empowered Activism - E67
How can we use our freedom to stand up for the oppressed?
In this episode Amisha connects with Raki Ap. Raki shares the story of his life: fleeing West Papua as a child, growing up in the Netherlands and joining the Dutch army, and now living in political exile in The Hague.
Raki wants the world to know what has been happening in West Papua to West Papuans and what we as individuals can do to support them and stand up for their freedom. He speaks about the work he is doing in the Netherlands to inspire young people to act, to raise their voices and to feel empowered to speak out for those who are silenced by oppression.
Together Raki and Amisha share personal stories of their experiences of West Papua and West Papuans, speak about reclaiming ancestral heritage and the root cause and impact of climate breakdown.
