A filmmaker David Fedele spent three months to uncover how Malaysian logging companies operating in Papua New Guinea treating local people in cohort with its corrupt politicians.

“It is a tale of exploitation and broken promises, where local people are treated as second-rate citizens in their own country,” David wrote at his Vimeo page where the original video was uploaded.

As in Sarawak, the customary landowners in Papua were forced into signing documents they don’t understand, for the promise of “development” – fresh water, roads, health and education, but these essential services are rarely provided.

Instead, their traditional hunting ground is destroyed, and their traditional way of life is ruined forever.
