Saef 02 - Port Vila

This derelict building, located in a high-value location overlooking Vila bay, is adorned with what's become the signature of a local land-rights activist group, which claims much of this part of Efate island based on linguistic grounds - most of the place names in this area are in the language of the Shepherds group of islands. Logically, then (according to the Vete Land Association) the kastom ownership must derive to the people of the Shepherds.
