Saving the Rainforest in Rendova

Redditor merrderber is from the island of Rendova in the Solomon Islands. She is a now a law student in Australia. Her story is quite interesting.

Merrderber’s people have been in court for 14 years, fighting a logging company for the use of their land. She posted an explanation, but the TL;DR version is that an unscrupulous chief sold the tribal land to a large logging company out from underneath the people who lived there. The company came in and cut plenty of trees, but had to fight the residents, who were determined to stay. The residents won the case as of yesterday. Merrderber posted an album of pictures to celebrate. Be sure to read the captions.
