Children in Lau Village hold a sign reading "Our Land is Our Wholesale and our freezer. We don't want to sell it. We want it back." This village is at the frontline of a massive land grab that sees 5.2 million hectares of PNG's forests slated for destruction. The communities in Pomio rely on the forests for food security, building materials and their future livelihoods. Logging companies promise development and much needed services but all they deliver are dirty rivers and destroyed forests.10/24/2011
