Roland Levy

HRD, Coordinator
Alliansi Mahasaswa Papua - AMP (West Papua Student Alliance)

Roland Levy is a West Papuan student human rights defender. As a coordinator of the Alliansi Mahasaswa Papua - AMP (West Papua Student Alliance), he leads discussions on democracy, human rights violations and the rights of freedom of the press, and is involved in media outreach for the Alliance. He has also coordinated initiatives focused on the State’s responsibility to resolve tribal conflicts in Timika in 2017, and West Papua’s right to self-determination.

Attacks targetting defenders in West Papua have escalated in recent times, and the lack of media access to the region impacts the work of HRDs. Papuan rights activists have been arbitrarily arrested for peaceful demonstrations.
