We are delighted to announce that West Papuan political prisoner Steven Itlay has been released today after serving nearly a year in prison for organising a Free West Papua prayer gathering.
Steven Itlay became one of West Papua's most renowned political prisoners after being arrested in 2016 and has been released after an intense campaign by people all around the world calling for his release.
This photo was taken during Steven Itlay's court case in 2016. It is being reported that over 700 people in the local Timika area are heading to the local Free West Papua office to welcome him back from what they call the "little prison" to the "big prison" (which is West Papua itself. More photos and info to come soon!
We would like to thank everyone who has helped to Take Action for Steven Itlay over the past 10 months. The letters you have written, songs you have sung and calls for freedom you have made have meant that Steven has finally been released.
Jason can now beat the heat this summer and swim in his local pool thanks to our Ability Links program in NSW.
After our staff member Debbie heard about the barriers for Jason and others with mobility issues in accessing the local pool in Muswellbrook, she formed a working group to raise funds for the pool chair lift and aids needed. More than 40 community groups banded together to raise $10,000 and Ability Links matched the remaining amount.
The joy on Jason's face when he was able to lower himself into the pool for the first time put the community's effort into context in the most meaningful way. Now he and so many others who haven't been able to use the centre have been able to splash away the heat this summer.
"It’s much, much more accessible, it’s going to make a big difference to people in the community and be so much more inclusive, and ensure that people with disabilities aren’t excluded from using these facilities," said Debbie.
