CONFLICT, CUSTOM & CONSCIENCE: PHOTOJOURNALISM
AND THE PACIFIC MEDIA CENTRE
Edited by Jim Marbrook, Del Abcede, Natalie Robertson and David Robie


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. This photograph is one of the many that we have selected to mark the 10th anniversary pf the Pacific Media Centre in Auckland University of Technology's School of Communication Studies.

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, it has been produced as a limited edition for those who have contributed to the PMC. It will also be available in libraries and will be available later as an e-book.

Libraries requesting a copy should email: communicate@aut.ac.nz

Faafetai to the Pacific Media Centre for this fabulous publication. I like the themes and the car on the canoe.

Congratulations on the wonderful thought-provoking production of ‘Conflict, Custom and Conscience’, marking a decade of dedication to bearing witness to conflicts that, for reasons beyond my ken, would otherwise be largely ignored or forgotten.
