Bula trademark

Joan McGoon, Nadi

It’s amazing to see some of our political parties unite to take action against the universal trademark rights of the word “Bula”.

Such is the unity we have all been expecting to see displayed.

All it took was an outside influence to set the wheels in motion.

Yes, the world is indeed a big place and sparring with each other is not going to make life any easier or our lives any more productive.

Let’s continue this unity and truly live out our BULA trademark values: Hospitality, life and prosperity.

I don’t know how accurate Sun News Poll (FS 29/3) is, but as an estimator of public opinion one thing is clear … more people want Voreqe Bainimarama as Prime Minister (74 per cent).

Such opinions can only be made after looking at policies and activities.

How else can you determine election results with such data?

Let us look forward to the election.

The nation depends on fresh and daily news from overseas and locally, who better than Our Fiji Sun.

Bigger brighter better for 19 strong years with better original and new innovative ideas, giving a platform to all new and old readers and encouraging writers to share their views with the nation.

Covering the nation with their headlines and informing the public of what is going around the nation, overseas and in sports, weather, classified, selling, buying, etc.

Congratulations Fiji Sun on this anniversary and wishing many more years to prosper with better team work and all astonishing successful accomplishments and future events.

I live you with a quote “It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper”. Jerry Seinfeld.

Vinaka Fiji Sun, truly you are the sun of the nation.

Unity in Diversity

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

National unity as being preached by those political leaders is psychological and it is a mindset, it is also about finding peace with oneself.

Unity is a positive behavioural pattern where you have to practically be seen carrying its flag day in and day out, where it can create a positive impact on those who you acquaint with.

However, the consistent negativity from those opposition parties are a hindrance and an obstacle to achieving lasting peace and national unity holistically.

Negativity or positivity is a mindset.

We Fijians possess the power and the natural ability to make it good for our multiracial society, but let’s take as an example the infighting between Tupou Draunidalo from the HOPE party and SODELPA’s Sitiveni Rabuka and Lynda Tabuya.

It will certainly create more division and harm than unity.

It depicts the lack of harmony, trust and leadership from both camps, which will leave their small followers of voters confused.

This is where the FijiFirst party has an upper hand and is generally seen as a stable political party of choice with its leadership from the 630,000+ majority Fijian eligible voters.

National unity begins from the home and it translates into the churches, schools, settlements, villages whether in rural or urban centres, our workplaces, sports and national celebrations.

Good Government service delivery, walking the talk, Proactive Government policies, safety and stability in leadership, listening and solving problems that matter most to all Fijians are the key to the success of any political party in our 2018 National Election.

We look back 12 years now at the FijiFirst party, from its Interim Government status in 2007 until 2014 and as a democratically-elected Government on September 2014 to 2018.

It is the only political party that we Fijians can identify ourselves with simply because there is evidence in its good governance until as we speak.

As for other political parties that will be fighting this year’s election we have never seen anything from them the past 12 years. It is all talk and promises that have never eventuated with no evidence absolutely.

Stop sexual assault on children

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

While our Government is concentrating on “Climate Change” the other problem that needs some serious attention is the rising sexual offences and rape against  our dearest children.

What are our leaders, churches, NGOs, chiefs, politicians and the public doing about it?

Everyone is surely either reading and listening to the local news on daily basis and not a single day it’s never on the news.

Our judicial department is surely coming across such cases every day?

While the election is just around the corner and no political party has issued ways of combating this problem.

The public has every right to question them when campaigning starts.

What is happening Fiji?

It’s time that our Government cleans up our backyard first before trying to get the world’s attention on some other issue because this issue is of great concern for our children and our grandchildren.

They are the ones who are affected in so many ways.   

Harsher punishment would probably be the way to go, offenders should have their fingers or feet amputated or whipped in prison on a daily basis or be caged and publicly displayed.

They should have the worst punishment meted out to them.
