The impetus for this brutal attack was the planned development of a multi-million dollar five star hotel, marina, wharf and residential apartments - a precedent for PNG.
`The Opposition’, an investigative documentary, traces Joe Moses’ struggle to save his 3000-strong community from forcible eviction. Risking his own life and suffering betrayals and police brutality, Joe wages a three-year court battle against the companies behind the development.
As the struggle unfolds, Joe recruits a coalition of allies including Dame Carol, investigator Kristian Lasslett and a dedicated team of pro-bono lawyers.
