Two More Bright Spots For The Future

Advocating on land is simple as taking a bus ride to watch Jumanji at the cinema in Waigani, Port Moresby.

Being regulars at the cinema and with consent from parents whilst on their way to the cinema to watch Jumanji they have been distributing Land is Life stickers to crews of public transports. Going to the cinema to watch Jumanji may be a child’s favorite and it can turned out to be an opportunity for these little sweet hearts both 11 years old, becoming our unsung heroes to advocate on land issues.

We owe it to these little brave hearts that have taken a step in the line to educate and foster knowledge on land grabbing amongst citizens of this country in the capital of Port Moresby.

Their advocacy came up in a time when it is feared that customary landowners will completely loose their land when the government is trying to make all customary land bankable. Land grabbing is taking a new phase each time when land advocacy is empowering communities to resist government development plans that are mostly foreign driven.

We owe our love and courage to these brave hearts to stand with us to defend and protect our Land that is Our Life!

Land Advocacy does not require professional advice but can be a hobby or just another publicizing activity for the little ones. It may sound a bit strange for children to be involved in the whole dilemma of land in a country like Papua New Guinea. But we owe it to the little brave hearts that have taken the step ahead in the line to educate and foster knowledge amongst citizens of this country in the capital of Port Moresby.

Their advocacy came up in a time when it is feared that customary landowners will completely loose their land. Land grabbing is taking new phase every time when land advocacy is taking strength in empowering communities and the society to withstand foreign investment and government driven development plans.
