I was very happy seeing that we can all meet our Cabinet Ministers and whoever is responsible for this strike.
I am a civil servant who somehow got a chance to work here in Australia on a working visa. I have been an active member of the striker movement from the Ministry of Health and I was very happy to see our Hon Minister on the lawn at Pangai Si'i. I am pretty sure that there is no place like Tonga but it will take a lot of courage and sacrifice before such goal will be achieved.
The fact that the PSA pulled out of the Princess Regent's offer is also seen as a careful movement by the committee to ensure that it is done in writing and not by mouth as we moved from a Tonga, which deals by mouth to that which is supposed to be written. It a very courageous move and hopefully everything will be settled without any chaos.
Again, I will urge readers to pray for our little country as they struggle to maintain our dignity and pride of our nation "Koe Otua mo Tonga ko hota tofi'a"
