Indonesia's crackdown on West Papuan independence activists is spreading beyond it's borders into neighbouring Papua New Guinea. Local officials and activists say that Indonesia is applying pressure to PNG's government to quash activism on the issue.

Human rights lawyer Jen Robinson is better known for her role in defending Julian Assange, but for many years she's also provided support and representation for West Papuan activists. She joined The Wire on the line from Port Moresby.

Independence activists in Indonesia’s West Papua province have been the subject of violent attacks in the past few days, with one man reported dead, and others reported missing.
The crackdown has even extended into the neighbouring country of Papua New Guinea, where West Papuan activists have been arrested and questioned by PNG police, in the nation’s capital, Port Moresby.
