                  “The Falklands Regime” by Mike Bingham
                                                 Five million penguins lost since commercial fishing.
                                                 The Falklands’ Conservation Officer replaced,
                                                harassed, arrested and threatened with death after
                                                blowing the whistle.
                                                 The Falklands government condemned by the
                                                Supreme Court in 2003 for Human Rights breach.
                                                A British citizen forced to find democracy, freedom of
                                                speech, and protection for penguins, in Argentina.
                                                 The true story of one man’s struggle against
                                                environmental destruction, greed, corruption and
                                                human rights breach in the Falklands. Available in
