The rural population of Papua New Guinea have long suffered at the hands of both foreign and national developers. This short documentary film captures the environmental injustice and human rights violation being experienced by the communities, living in the Special Agriculture Business Leases (SABL) project site of Pomio and Kairak in the East New Britain Province.

The video sets out to encourage global stakeholders to denounce the actions of oil palm and logging companies and to stop the genocide. More importantly, this film shows the visual impacts of these oil palm and logging companies, that the sharholder companies have invested in, has created and are impacting the lives of rural communities in PNG.
