Right now in Papua New Guinea, private companies are stealing land for logging and palm oil plantations – and destroying the livelihoods of indigenous communities in the process.
The impact of these corporate land grabs on the rural communities across Papua New Guinea is devastating. While their homes are exploited for profit, they are forced to work on their own land for poverty wages.
When land rights defenders resist, they are met with intimidation and violence. That’s why we’re calling on our supporters to ramp up the pressure on the PNG government. Will you sign our petition calling on Papua New Guinea to take action on these illegal land grabs?
