The Panguna SML Osikaiang Landowners Association fully supports 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.
