Description : In the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, tribal fights, sparked by disputes over land, resources and other grievances, lead to dozens of deaths and thousands of displacements each year. Tragically, the situation is deteriorating. An influx of guns and a general breakdown in the traditional rules governing warfare are amplifying the effects of the violence. Today, no-one is spared from the ferocity of a fight. Children, women, health-care workers, all have become targets. This short film documents the humanitarian consequences of Papua New Guinea’s modern-day tribal fighting and looks at initiatives being undertaken by both local and international organisations to mitigate the impacts of the violence.
The ICRC seeks to lessen the humanitarian consequences of this violence by promoting basic principles of humanity with local communities and weapon bearers.
In collaboration with two local theatre groups, OZONE and Tiria, the ICRC has been touring an interactive drama play to communities in the Highlands.
