»Crying Meri«

In Papua New Guinea, more than two-thirds of women have experienced physical or sexual violence. Particularly in the slums of Port Moresby, attacks are common. Peter Moses, leader of a raskol gang, says that it is an initiation rite for young gang members to rape women. »And it is better to kill the woman afterwards. There will be fewer problems with the police«, he says. In the old days, young men killed pigs in the villages. Now, in the cities, they take women instead. Dini Korul survived an attack and tells her story.
