Wednesday, August 2nd at Dendy Cinemas Newtown in Sydney.
RESERVE YOUR TICKET:
The Opposition was screened at The Sydney Film Festival to packed houses and 2 standing ovations – here is your chance to see the film and hear from AID/WATCH and Jubilee Australia about the important work we are doing on this land grabbing issue in Papua New Guinea.
The Opposition examines the battle over the eviction of 3000 people from Paga Hill community on the Port Moresby Peninsula in Papua New Guinea to make way for Australian-backed property development, dubbed as one of the country’s biggest public-private partnership projects.
With a significant number of Paga Hill residents still displaced and their grievances not resolved they are still fighting in the PNG courts to seek compensation for damages for the property damage they have suffered over the years and the human rights abuses that they have endured.
PANEL ON THE NIGHT
- MC: Antony Lowenstein
- Natalie Lowrey, Campaign Coordinator, AID/WATCH
- Brynn O’Brien, Business and Human Rights Advisor, Jubilee Australia
- Hollie Fifer, Director, The Opposition
