“All powers belong to the people. We have the right to be heard”
Call our hotline for more information 7327 0779

You can help to stop corruption by protesting it so that as a collective voice we can be heard. 

We ask all workers in Port Moresby and around the nation to stop work on Monday 18th November and challenge the O’Neill Government to send the Police to come and arrest each and everyone of us for protesting.

We ask all PMV and taxi operators in Port Moresby to pull your vehicles off the road on Monday 18th November. We also ask all parents not to send your children to school.

We ask all workers unions, NGOs, civil society groups and churches to support us in this protest.

If you decide to keep quiet, that’s fine because you are supporting corruption and mismanagement of public resources to flourish.

Help us to demand attention and action to fight this beast called corruption. No politician can sit on hot issues if you help us to make these issues hot enough.

Among the issues that will now form a backlog to be carried into 2014 are:

(1) Paul Paraka’s alleged fraud of K71.8m

(2) Expropriation of OTML assets without compensation

(3) Harboring international fugitives while law abiding foreigners in PNG can be kidnapped and deported without following due processes

(4) Outstanding Sevua Report for the UNITECH saga

(5) Awarding contracts to cronies outside the Financial Management Act

(6) Excessive Budget Deficits that are dishing out negative trickle down effects

(7) and you can name the rest of the corruption and mismanagement related issues created under the O’Neill Government

Please share the image for this post on your walls, those of your friends or in the groups that you belong to. Remember that the people doing corrupt deals never take a day off that is why our country is so corrupt because good people rarely fight it.

Keep the spirit God willing,

From the Social Media Activism Committee Executives.

OPPOSITION LEADER RESPONSE ON REINSTATEMENT OF DISCHARGED DEFENCE OFFICER Opposition’s Facebook Page, 13.11.13

Following the parliament sitting yesterday afternoon, the Opposition called a Press Conference highlighting the issue the Opposition Leader brought to the Parliament Sitting regarding the reinstatement of Col. Stanley Benny who was charged and dishonorably discharged for giving the order for rampage and attack on students and facilities at the Medical Faculty at Taurama Campus beginning of this year.

This is following complaints made by students after they were denied their rights of laying a formal complaint and report at the Boroko Police Station regarding the Colonel’s reinstatement; whom they allege is the first cousin of the Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill and could amount to serious breach in protocol in the defence line of order. 

The Prime Minister is also alleged to have ordered a call out for an operation code named ‘Never’ whereby he is secretly guarded with military escorts, which he denied blatantly in the parliament sitting.

The Opposition Leader expressed disappointment in how the Police denied the students their basic right in laying a simple formal complaint. 

He appealed to the police to perform their constitutional duty without fear or favour and also reissued his call for the Police Commissioner to resign.

“The Ingredients of dictatorship is when you start controlling media, police and the army you are now becoming a dictator,” said Hon. Belden Namah.

He appealed to the commander to adhere to senior disciplinary officers decisions that the person, Lieutenant Colonel Stanley Benny, was dishonorably discharged from the first battalion otherwise Prime Minister will politicize the first battalion of the Defence Force; the first battalion being the important and strategic institution in the whole of Defence Force.

By now Papua New Guineans and Members of Parliament should know who our Prime Minister is; he has built walls around him by amending sections 145 and 124 of the Constitution. Now he is in full view of the public putting his hands in all institutions controlling them.

 

In the Media industry there has already been the demoting of three senior Journalists because they are said to be politically swayed by the Opposition, what kind of excuse is this to suppress the press in doing their job also denying these journalists their right of excelling in their career as journalists.

“Question now is Where are we heading, where is this country heading?”

He appealed to the Members of Parliament to view who the Prime Minister really is and work out for themselves who is co-conspirator to corruption.

“Who is co-conspirator in paying that large amount of K71.8 million, who is now also the co-conspirator with Sports Minister in awarding inflated contract to the construction of Games Village,” exclaimed Namah.

“Defence Force is an institution that must not be politicized!”

Regarding the taunting remarks the Prime Minister said about the Opposition Leader on the floor of Parliament yesterday how the Opposition Leader is still being in the sense of a soldier, Hon. Belden Namah said,

“For me, Once a Soldier always a Soldier but for you Once a Thief always a Thief.”

The Opposition Leader went on to say that the Prime Minister cannot continue lying like how he denied the letter of directive he gave to Finance and Treasury ministers to pay Paul Paraka because on his return from China he said in his press conference that if there was a letter he signed, it was not criminal.

Therefore following the above remark, the Opposition Leader then responded accordingly to the Prime Minister,

“You can’t take the Soldier out of me; similarly we can’t get the stealing and lying out of you”.
