Crying Freedom (a.k.a. Vanishing Tribes) is a free, interactive, 70-page illustrated novel based on real events in West Papua. It's a tribute to the people of this island nation and their unshakeable determination for more than 50 years, against all odds, to regain their freedom through passive resistance.

If you are safe, join young Vivi as she seeks to understand her role in ending a global conspiracy that continues to enable militarized commerce and genocide in West Papua, a place perhaps as biologically and culturally diverse as the Amazon. (55 optional pop-ups in the story offer substantiating facts and references to video and academic sources.)

"The Papuan struggle for dignity has global resonance, linking human rights and defence of the environment. This beautifully illustrated and carefully researched book is an important contribution to telling West Papua's story." Dr. David Webster, Professor of History
