Our team here at WFC can’t help but notice that it is our women folks who seem to be the real warriors in Fiji’s fight to a return to democracy and rule of law.
They have stood out as our warriors in the frontline, engaged in some of the most intense battle waged by Frank’s dictatorial regime since 5/12.
It has made us, the “pufta” men folks (whatever) in this WFC Head Office, kind of “madua”. But we have this arrangement going here where we boys take turn to cook our team’s meals everyday as we blog on. We tried cooking Fijian curry for lunch but it turned out to be a pot of stew simply because, you know, we don’t have the Punja curry powder, masala, hardi and those other nice curry spices you guys have at home. Damn, how we miss it here!
Anyways, back to our nightingale nurses.
These valiant warriors are peacefully marching in to launch an all-out peaceful assault on the junta with their strike coming up in 4 days time.
Somehow, we can hear them saying:
“Come on husbands, uncles, brothers, nephews and grand-pas of Fiji. Don’t be sitting ducks waiting to be plucked alive!It’s time to get out of the pew and head to the frontline. It’s time to take the offensive against the enemy instead of sitting back and reacting. It’s time to become proactive instead of reactive or inactive. We the nightingale nurses of Fiji have sounded the batlle cry, and now it’s time to go forth in the mighty power of God.
P.S This is an invitation by WFC to all of you in Fiji to peacefully support our Fiji 1400 nightingale nurses as they prepare to go on strike.
