TAX'PAYERS MONEY USED INTO NON-ECONOMIC ACTIVITY.

Image
by NELSON WANDI The current state of affairs in Papua New Guinea (PNG) raises concerns about the priorities of its citizens and government. While PNG citizens show enthusiasm in supporting the national rugby team, the Kumuls, this enthusiasm has diverted attention from critical matters such as the economy and law enforcement. It's disheartening that a nation grappling with economic challenges and law and order issues would place such emphasis on non-economic pursuits like sports. This is particularly true when considering the country's 47-year history of unstable governance. The significant financial allocation towards the PNG Kumuls each year raises questions about the efficient use of taxpayers' money. The funds come from private sector investments and the people's taxes, which are intended to fuel economic growth and public services. However, these resources are instead directed toward the Kumuls and even their participation in overseas matches. It's important to

LEARN FROM THE FALL OF WEST AFRICAN RESOURCE RICH STATES

Image
by DAVID LEPI The fall of American and European puppet regimes around the world is something PNG should learn Whilst the ink of the PNG-US Defence Cooperation Agreement hasn't dried yet Americans are already making intrusions into the country with no regard to sovereignty or whatsoever.  The government of Prime Minister James Marape courting 'big bucks' Uncle Sam to almost selling out PNG's sovereignty can be re-looked with the same lense we are seeing puppet governments overthrown around the world.  The West's intelligence and covert agencies like the CIA, MI6 etc supply money and influence to help 'friendly governments' to stay in power.  The sudden fall of the US puppet regime in Afghanistan in August 2021 is the beginning of a humiliating debacle for Western imperialism.  According to the World Socialist Website America fleeing Afghanistan marks the collapse of a regime that was imposed through a criminal war and occupation, promoted on the basis of lies

πŸ’£ A TIME BOMB TICKING IF BPA IS NOT RATIFIED.

Bougainville President Ishmael Toroama has urged Prime Minister James Marape to openly express his concerns regarding Bougainville's pursuit of independence from Papua New Guinea. Mr. Toroama's call comes in response to the delay in the ratification process for the Referendum, which has exceeded the stipulated time in the Bougainville Peace Agreement (BPA) for parliamentary approval. During the recent Joint Supervisory Body (JSB) Meeting in Port Moresby, both leaders addressed the situation. Mr. Toroama questioned the Prime Minister's fears, asking if they relate to complete detachment from PNG, concerns about the rest of the country seeking to unify with PNG, or a lack of seriousness towards the referendum's outcome. He emphasized the importance of embracing Melanesian customs and values, highlighting that Bougainville's path to independence was shaped by a long and arduous journey, marked by sacrifices of over 20,000 lives and extensive infrastructure damage.

One authentic photo; not photoshopped as alleged by few, where the Prime Minister of PNG while meeting Prime Minister of France in Variarata Park this week had K100 bills sticking out of this front side pocket.

Call for Objection to the DCA on June Parliament Sitting

Image
by MICHAEL TAM The US-PNG Defence Cooperation Agreement was signed on May 22nd by PNG Defence Minister Win Bakri Daki and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at APEC Haus. This occurred despite nationwide protests urging Prime Minister Marape to dismiss JT and refrain from signing the security pact. The Marape Government has consistently shown a lack of respect for the people of PNG. Marape, JT, and their officials continue to refer to the protesting PNG students as "Primitive Animals" within their internal Whatsapp Group. It is disheartening to see these politicians enjoy privileges and funds bestowed upon them by voters and taxpayers, while simultaneously discriminating against us as if they are not part of the PNG community. We must persist in our fight to expose and remove these corrupt politicians from the PNG Government and prevent them from selling PNG's sovereignty to the US through the DCA. Despite Marape's assurances to the media that PNG will not be used

USA, Australia Militarizing PNG: Softly swallowing sovereignty, rendering a vassal state

 An independent geopolitical perspective    by Dominic Navue Sengi* Background for understanding US, Australia behavior I have read around some online databases such as google, Wikipedia and quora for assistance in affording clarity on how different categories of colonialist are that helps in understanding the historical background to which some of the key players, in this case US as the global hegemon and Australia are pitching their interventions into PNG and the greater Pacific Island Countries (PICs). In PNG, this has never been more glaring than now in the 21 st Century so called Free and Open Indo-Pacific Region. For this purpose, there are at least three categories of colonialist to deal with. Neo-colonist empires are different from classical and colonial empires . Persia, Rome, China, Aztecs and Egypt are classical empires , their civilizations that had expanded their territory through war, religion and trade colonialism. These incorporated lands under the direct co
