Fight to protect Fiji reef from Chinese developer | 60 Minutes Australia SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rREdMMfZT4 : It started with a dream to create a patch of heaven in Fiji, a surfer’s paradise right near one of the world’s most legendary waves, Cloudbreak. Two Aussie mates, Navrin Fox and Woody Jack, obtained a 99-year lease on land on Malolo Island and planned a small and environmentally friendly resort. But then, to their horror and disgust, right next door bulldozers rolled in and started clearing everything in sight. The spectacular reef, sandy beach and pristine rainforest were all destroyed by Chinese developers determined to build, of all things, a $100 million casino. But as Liam Bartlett reports, far from being wiped out, the Aussie surfers refused to let the dirty rotten scoundrels get away with it.
