Ol bikpela hevi na wari istap yet long nupela Bougianville Mining Law

Opposition to the draft Final Mining Law for Bougainville is growing across the island as more and more people learn about the neo-colonial intent and foreign origins of the proposed law. The petition below, which originated in Tinputz, has very quickly spread and is now accumulating signatures in all corners of the country as local people unite.

  1. I believe the ABG undertook an educational process with a number of presentations around Bougainville of the salient aspects of the new law. It would be impossible, however, for every man, woman and child to pore over 500 pages of detail, heavily laced with legal jargon. Therefore the demand for independent, impartial examination of the new law, and reporting in terms that most people can understand, seems to be very reasonable.

      I fully support the petition by the people of Tinputz as the present final draft of the long term Bougainville Mining Law is miles away from protecting the resource owners of Bougainville. If our present ABG Government passes this law, all the sacrifice by the 20,000 odd lives will be in vain. The Veto Power that our president states is only HOT AIR.

      Bougainville will still be as it was in the mid 1966s. I thought our leaders at ABG as a result of the 10 years of civil war will by now learn some lesson. After being educated now and having experienced the destruction of our environment our President is still Hell bent on trying to push through this Mining Law before the end March session of ABG Parliament.

    Bougainville Mines should be held and worked by the Bougainville people. It should be up to them whether they open and work the mine or leave it closed

    THIS IS A BULSHITS PREFABLICATED TUBUNA STORY which I have read on this forum. Nothing of this type of story is spreading all around bougainville. WE know that some disgrunted people are doing this, stealing and signing names of people. This have been proven during the open forum debate between the trios and ABG President. There were only a handful of combatants picked up from parts of Wakunai, Inus and Timputz The various Panguna Landowners Associations have done their belkol awareness all throughout the length of Bougainville, from north through to south, east and West. WE are just waiting for the belkol organizers for the date for the celebration. ML From myONE TOUCH PIXI

      Thanks Michael. It’s good to hear from someone ‘on the ground’, because much of what is reported here on PNG Mine Watch is rather dubious, if not outright propaganda. Hopefully though, to remove any apprehension, there will be an independent review of the new legislation.
