Many thanks to Clive Porabou for being so generous with interview time and it was great to see the new documentary from Eel Films, Mekamui- ‘Saving Our Land’. Terrific to hear more voices of Bougainville people on the mining issue.
Clive! Thanks for sharing your story and giving a voice to the silent majority of your community. What a huge struggle. I’m inspired and humbled by how strong and dedicated your community is to their needs, values and wants. And appalled yet again by the corruption and filth of governments and corporations. Your story also gave me hope that I should fight harder and be more active in my community and beyond to make change to this crazy world we find ourselves in!
Would love to come and visit bougainvillea one day.
