Hello there! If any of you are interested in helping out west papuans, then I invite you to a fundraising dinner!! You can email me at cgochoa@uno.edu or call at 918.406.1284 if you have any questions. Thanks for your time.

Fundraising Dinner For West Papua
Sunday, May 8th
7:00 PM
7725 Cohn St.
$5-20 sliding scale cost

Please join us in raising money to help West Papuan refugees who've been forced to flee from the Indonesian military. Many West Papuans have escaped over the border into Papua New Guinea, and don't have adequate amounts of desperately needed food or medical supplies.

We will have books about West Papua and its peoples to look at, some cool videos we can watch if we want o, and of course, FOOD. We'll have a bunch of tasty vegetarian and vegan food for folks to eat while we hang out and discuss West Papua, Freeport-McMoRan, or
anything else.

We encourage folks to try and pay as much as they can, because all the money is going to West Papua. And really, will you REALLY not be able to do without that $10 or $20 dollars? That money will go a long way in West Papua. And if you want to help out with more than $20, that's awesome, of course. 100% of the money raised will be going towards the much-needed humanitarian aid efforts for West Papuans.

If you want to bring a dish to make the dinner even more awesome, you can, but there will be plenty of food. If you bring a dish you still have to pay, too. Sorry it's not a potluck.

Okay, so we'll see you there,
New Orleans West Papua Solidarity Group

Questions, more info, etc..., contact us at:
If anyone wants more information about the situation with Freeport-McMoRan and West Papua, please visit:

Here is a pamphlet you can print out and pass around about Freeport:

Subject:Dinner Night Suggestion
Time:10:18 pm
from danbhalah:
I know the next dinner night is scheduled for May 14th - but FYI - on May 13th there is a belly dancing convention in town and troupes from around the region will be performing at the Indian/Hookah Cafe on Frenchman Street. The food is pretty good and the entertainment will be great! This is just a suggestion to be considered...
