And the Unions movement also was in favour of Sukarno, that "anti-colonialist", colonising West Papua. They attempted to block Neth. forces from Australian ports during the Papuan confrontation."Nobody helped Neths. to stay in (more of) E.Indies"
Well Australia attempted to - it supplied large quantities of ex-WWII 25Pdr ammunition. Menzies, the Australian PM of the day decided that Sukarno and Co. were "Communist" (without proof) and decided it was better to keep the Netherlands in control. The Australian Union movement disagreed and attempted to block the loading of the ammunition and other stores in Australian ports. They were initially unsuccessful but stopped later shipments being loaded onto ships.
