Games chief blames closing ceremony chaos on fans and VIPs
Peter O’Neill’s Torres islands claim rejected by former official



There flies the pride
A pride in shreds
A pride in despair
PNG, is this your pride?

Wings torn
No one cares
No one’s concern
Dignity torn

Not from a barrel of a gun
You never experience racism
You never experience a civil war
PNG, you never held a gun

To serve your country
To fight for your country
To die for your country
With honour, dignity and pride

What it means to be a Papua New Guinean
What it means to be a country
What it means to be independent
What it means to be free

Look at your brothers on the other side
Fighting to be a country
Fighting to be independent
Fighting to be free

You didn’t fight for it
You didn’t get it in a battlefield
You were served without loss of blood
The envy of the world

PNG, take pride in your country
PNG, take pride in your independence
PNG, take pride in your freedom
The world’s last frontier – take pride
