Film screening: The Coconut Revolution

Mining and drilling is experiencing a resurgence with plans for more open cast mines and deep sea oil drilling rearing their ugly heads. Join us to see a film that tells a story of resistance against Rio Tinto, one of the world’s biggest mining companies.

The Coconut Revolution is the story of the extraordinary struggle of the Bougainville Revolutionary Army for their land, their culture and their independence – against an overwhelming Papua New Guinea army, backed by the Australian government and the billions of Rio Tinto.
