In Samoa, a fight to save historic German courthouse
5-nov-2014 - RNZI.
A Samoan architect in New Zealand is rallying support to save one of Samoa's most historically valued buildings.
This year marks a hundred years since New Zealand overthrew the German administration and the old German Courthouse is under threat of being replaced by a Chinese designed commercial building.
Lama Tone says locals in Apia are passionate about saving the building which was a significant landmark in Samoa's struggle for independence.
