" Respond to this post by replying above this line New post on Vanuatu Daily Digest Do you recognise this ni-Vanuatu girl from 1983? by dailyvanuatu Do you know this girl?   In 1983, at Independence Park, Port Vila, this young ni-Vanuatu girl was photographed during the Nuclear-Free and Independent Pacific conference, protesting against France's nuclear weapons testing on Muroroa Atoll, French Polynesia. The girl is also featured on the front cover of New Zealand journalist and media educator's David Robie's 2014 book – Don't Spoil My Beautiful Face: Media, Mayhem and Human Rights in the Pacific. The placard she was holding at the time is the source of the book's title. The girl also appears in the video of the song 'Nuclear Free' (video link below) by legendary Vanuatu string band Huarere (the girl can be seen at 1 minute and 8 seconds). The girl would now be in her late thirties, and David Robie would love to know who she is and find out where she is today. Can someone out there in our audience help?
