Not Victims, Not A Shanty Town

0

Today we publish Kristian Lasslett's account of his visit to ATS, the Port Moresby "shanty town" earmarked for demolition under the Rudd Government's PNG refugee resettlement plan. He reports on a safe community, built by collective effort, that has successfully resisted threats from big property developers.

Here, photographer Philippe Schneider's photos tell a different story to the claims of "filth" and "car jackings, rape, theft and murder" reported in the Courier Mail and elsewhere.
