THE WOUNDS ARE STILL FRESH, THEY ARE STILL HEALING
When are the Bougainvilleans going to learn? You just witnessed a 10 year crisis resulting in loss of 16,000 lives on the island. IT WAS A BLOODY ISLAND, BLOOD WAS EVERYWHERE - YET PEOPLE ARE TURNING A BLIND EYE ON THIS AND ARE TALKING ABOUT OPENING MINING IN THE AREA. COME ON BOUGAINVILLEANS, YOU HAVE SURVIVED 10 YEARS WITHOUT GOVERNMENT SUPPORT. How dare you forget so quickly, do you want someone else to come and tell you, its so obvious. IMAGINE, A LOT OF INNOCENT PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES FOR FREEDOM AND JUSTICE TO PREVAIL, YET YOU GREEDY POLITICIANS AND LEADERS ARE TURNING A BLIND EYE ON THIS. LOOK BACK TO WHY YOU FOUGHT AT THE FIRST PLACE, WAS THIS ALL FOR NOTHING, COME ON BOUGAINVILLEANS, LANDOWNERS, NGOS RISE UP!
THE ISSUE OF MINING SHOULD NOT EVEN BE TALKED ABOUT IN BOUGAINVILLE - THE WOUNDS ARE STILL FRESH AND ARE STILL HEALING. OH BOUGAINVILLE, YOU ARE MADE A 360 DEGREES TURN FROM YOUR FOCAL POINT, COME ON, SHOW US PNGEANS AND THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT, WE ARE WATCHING. WE WON'T BE SURPRISED IF THE PARLIAMENT HOUSE IN BOUGAINVILLE WHICH HOUSES ABG IS THE SAME AS OURS IN WAIGANI.
