A company claiming a commercial land title of the Paga hill area began demolishing the houses of over 2000 Paga residence today.
What about all the stake holders, whom should claim portions of this land including NHC, Police Legacy, National Parks, and Kikori settlers being the original Paga settlers whom where given permission to settle in this land by the Motu Koita after the war?
And what of the War memorial Sites? The bunkers and the left over bombs? This is a very real part of our history and should be National Park Land. Utterly outrageous, this land has been fraudulently obtain, no one in their right mind would allow such historical landmarks to be traded in as commercial land.
If we tolerate this kind of forceful action by developers, then we continue to feed this country to the dogs. The past decade has seen some terribly corrupt events, but I'm afraid this takes my pick as one of the lowest. The stakes are so high that human beings lose their sense of care for the rights they trample on. Over 2000 people will be effected, many of whom have spent their entire lives living in that area.
A sad day for human rights in this country!
