As a concerned citizen of my country I would like to express my disappointment at the organisation of the march yesterday by the Fiji Trades Union Congress in support of some Air Terminal Services who have been on strike since December 16, 2018. The march had close to 900 people with big names missing. I believe that due to the heat in Nadi it got the town in a mess.
About 10,000 people and a thousand cars were stuck in traffic or had to stop in between their shopping to allow for the movement of people in the march. Already these ATS workers have put the country down by leaving their important responsibilities. Yesterday was no different as children and parents were made to discontinue their school shopping until the marches have passed them.
Buses were late for their trips. Many parents, children and even some tourists had to walk to town since the driveways were blocked.
I also have a question to the relevant authorities who issue permits for such marches to consider factors of disruption to the general public who are not even interested. I strongly believe whatever the the situation is understanding is vital.
