    Please stop feeling so powerless.
    Do something about this issue.
    Obviously, your “gutless Prime Minister” won’t stop the corporate thugs. He has 1267 days to correct the revolting logging companies from destroying your environment.
    Best you do your best. Your Prime Minister doesn’t give a damn.
    Would Peter O’Neill like his land to be treeless?
    With great respect to you all who know.
    Oh, and by the way, when you stop the Indonesian infulence chopping down your trees and logging, could you also consider the people in West Papua and how they are influenced by the Freeport McMoran mine at Grasberg?
    Stop the logging company and when you do stop the mining companies too.
    In solidarity.

    And tell you lawyers and solicitors to stop the killing at the LNG project.
    Why does Exxon Mobil have the right to kill, maim and murder, when THEY KNOW they are so ugly and cruel knowing to this date, making millions and did NOT PAY UP. Yet, your current governmet has sided with the filth and ordered that anyone who opposes the scumbags must be killed.
    In solidarity,

    PNG to deploy military to stop tribal fighting and protect gas project
    By Papua New Guinea correspondent Eric Tlozek
    Posted about 9 hours ago

    The Papua New Guinea Government has announced it will deploy the military to stop violence near the country’s biggest resources project.

    The PNG Defence Force will be deployed to Hela Province in the highlands where dozens of people have died in tribal conflict recently.

    Landowners in the province were also threatening to attack Exxon-Mobil’s PNG LNG project over ongoing complaints about royalties and equity in the project.

    PNG’s Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, said the military would work with police to conduct security operations in the province.

    “These problems have the potential to impact on the upcoming election as well as the operation of important projects in the area,” he said.

    “Police will have full powers to ensure law and order and to deal with people who seek to cause trouble.
    “This includes the immediate arrest of people seeking to initiate violent acts or make threats against Government officials or projects in the province.”

    Mr O’Neill said the military call-out would last six months, taking it past PNG’s national elections next year.

    He said the Government would ask Exxon-Mobil and Oil Search — the two main companies involved in the PNG LNG project — for logistical support to help the security operation.

    Tribal violence is often a problem in PNG’s highlands but it has escalated dramatically in Hela over the past year.

    Last month, two men were shot dead when the provincial governor’s convoy was stopped by armed men.

    Police responded by burning houses and gardens in an attempt to flush out those responsible.
