SOMEONE ELSE'S TREASURE
“When the company first came here, we welcomed them because they promised to bring us development – services to local communities, schools, hospitals, basics. But since they came, they have turned our whole society upside down! Land is going away, our food sources are going away, culture, costume, everything is going away, fading away! It’s worse than you can imagine!”
– Jethro Tulin, Ipili tribesman from Porgera, Papua New Guinnea.
