Sample e-mail and talking points:

Dear Rep. xxxx,

1. The U.S. Department of State, UN investigators and human rights
organizations have documented threats to freedom of expression and
dire prison conditions in the Indonesian provinces of West Papua and Papua.

2. The government of Indonesia must demonstrate its commitment to
freedom of expression by releasing people convicted for peacefully
expressing their political views, improving prison conditions, and
allowing access to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

3. The U.S. Congress needs to be a strong advocate for human rights
in Indonesia and elsewhere. Representative Kennedy’s resolution is an
opportunity for members to express their commitment to the rule of
law and freedom of expression in Indonesia. This can only strengthen democracy.

4. The Congressmember can support human rights by co-sponsoring House
Resolution 1355 by contacting Dan Murphy in Rep. Patrick Kennedy’s office.
