On May 21, RT held a screening of The Coconut Revolution at the Waypost. It was pretty well attended and the Coconut Revolution is indeed fascinating, inspiring and relevant. Big thanks to the Waypost for hosting this event.
‘”This 2001 documentary tells the story of the successful uprising of the indigenous peoples of Bougainville Island against the Papua New Guinea army and the mining plans of the mining corporation Rio Tinto Zinc (RTZ) to exploit their natural resources. The documentary reveals how the Bougainville Revolutionary Army (BRA) managed to overcome the marine blockade strategy used by the Papuan army by using coconut oil as fuel for their vehicles”.
