Valerie Adams and her 7 year-old daughter displayed placards with the message "Free West Papua" to coincide with the visit by the Indonesian Ambassador to the US.

Budi Bowoleksono had been invited by the territorial government to attend Flag Day celebrations.
Ms Adams questioned why Jakarta has provided US$300,000 toward construction of the Pago Pago Youth Center.

"Because I'm not sure why we're inviting the Indonesian government. We get federal grants. So when they donated to help out with our centre, I'm questioning the motive. American Samoa government should not be affiliated with the Indonesian government at all," she said.

Valerie Adams claims West Papua is being forcibly occupied by Indonesia, and hopes that more people will learn about the situation.
