2014 is rapidly approaching; this will be one of our most important elections especially for Fiji Pensioners. Fiji pensioners can make, or break, any political party by using their vote collectively.
Every politician will promise anything to get into power, we need to use our votes to put effective people into power who can really do something for the pensioners, there is no point in voting for politicians who either acted against pensioners in the past or are too weak or corrupt to concern themselves with pensioners in the future.
As a Pensioner or potential pensioner you are a member of the largest voting block in our country, it is time to show the “would be politicians” that we are not weak, not stupid and will not be trampled on or bulldozed by bullshit.
Do not waste your vote, get together with other pensioners NOW, discuss your problems, start planning and act together for the betterment of the aged of our Nation.
Collectively we are powerful, even though as aged individuals we may be weak.

We need to form a group and meet regularly to discuss issues
that affect us and that are important to us. We need to meet
also to ensure that we are all on the same page – I for one, as
a pensioner am sick and tired of being discriminated against merely
because of my age. No health insurance over 65 and yet the obituaries column is full of names of people much younger. I am also sick and tired of the way the
elderly in Fiji are treated – its as if we do not exist or not supposed to exist!
I am with you! My be we should field our own candidates from amongst us to ensure our voice is taken heed off.
