Now this is how you protest against corruption!

Congratulations to the Lae City Council workers!

Now we need their protest to inspire more Papua New Guineans to get involved in peaceful direct action against the corruption that is stealing our future…

Frustrated Lae City Council workers yesterday dumped rubbish in front of the council’s office in protest and claimed that city manager’s office is “dirty with corruption and is bankrupt”, after more than 300 city council employees were not paid their wages and salaries last Thursday.

    I always pondered the question “what will it take for Papua New Guineans to become angry?”

    From my own perspective, I am a comfortable middle-class Papua New Guinean living in the city with the privileges of the city comforts.

    I left my job because of my personal conscience and perhaps seeing the niche for independent journalism in PNG. Whilst I am not in a position to question the principles that other middle-class Papua New Guineans live bye, one would think most are too comfortable to act or shit-scared of the Upper Classes that pay them and the lower classes that “wokim raskol pasin long ol”

    Of course the vast majority of Papua New Guineans are subsistence villages. But in urban centers, many live in squatter settlements and eke out an existence being manual laborers.They walk like zombies to and from work as some us drive past in taxis. They are a totally exploited lot… What will it take for them to protest? Despite their miserably low wages and the high cost of living, they are silent donkeys working their backs off.

    Its good to see some movement in Lae!

    We need to start graffitting government buildings, throw eggs on the vehicles of politicians and otherwise start making a real nuisance of ourselves to them. Hit and run, hit and run, that’s the way to get those fat little bellies to feel some pain at last.
