A peaceful protest will be held in front of the Madang Provincial government Office this week Wednesday, to petition the provincial government over poor road conditions leading to Josephstaal in Ramu District.

Protesters will also present a petition to provincial authorities over the closure of the Josehpstaal airstrip, which is affecting service delivery in the area.

Community representatives, church leaders and service providers including teachers and health staff of Josephstaal will lead the protest.

In a letter to the government, the Josehpstaal Catholic Church says the government has failed in providing necessary funding to support and improve infrastructure in the area.

Existing services in Law and Order, Education and Health, are all run by the church.

The poor road conditions has also prevented garden produce and cash crops reaching markets.

The people are appealing to Governor Jim Kas, to look into the problem within the next three months and fix it.

The protesters, mainly public servants, say they expect an answer to their petition within the next 14 days, threatening to shut down education and health services for an indefinite period, if their calls are not heard.
