Thx. Naoko, Noted, but couldn't open petition site.But have signed similar ones on other sites. We all know MONEY always beats the little guy. And for their own government to open up land to Loggers is so wrong. Poor people.I hope they hide in the forest and attack in the old fighting ways like my Native people tried. But GOD is watching their greed..

All these ugly developments taking place all over the world will one day lead to the phenomena which is already observed in cities everywhere. There will be no individuality left in the world. Every city, every town will look alike - concrete jungles all - and the people are also starting to look the same. Jeans and t-shirts are the staple in whatever part of the world you may be in. No more indigenous clothing and customs. It's so sad it makes me want to cry out in anger. I feel sorry for the indigenous Papua New Guineans.
