The Opposition

Sign up and take action

THE OPPOSITION delves deep into the David-and-Goliath battle over a slice of Papua New Guinean paradise.

The Opposition asks how we can ethically build sustainable business in developing countries. The story is told through Joe Moses, leader of the Paga Hill settlement, who must save his 3,000 people before they are evicted. Battling it out in the courts, Joe may find his community replaced with a five star hotel and marina.
