A group of Melanesian women march behind an anti-mining "NO BCL, NO MINING" banner, across a small field in the now-autonomous region of Bougainville. Their protest is ostensibly unseen by the rest of the world. Their protest efforts are local, gender-specific, indigenous, and part of a wider movement to stop any production on the Panguna copper mine. This conflict claimed an estimated 10,000 lives in the 1990s civil war. Fifteen photojournalists and photographers who have worked with the Pacific Media Centre for the past decade have donated their images for this book project.

Although the book is not actually for sale, libraries and civil society groups are requested to order a copy from AUT Shop.
